West Palm Beach Nutrition Approaches for Degenerated Discs: Broccoli, Aloe and Grapeseed Oil

Who knew? Researchers are an interesting group of people. How they come up things to experiment with is a curiosity! What would make them to think “grapeseed oil, aloe vera gel, and broccoli may positively impact disc degeneration” is a wonder to Moses Chiropractic and surely to our West Palm Beach chiropractic patients, but a good wonder! They just might be onto something to deal with discs that are degenerated which trigger back pain, neck pain, and disturbance of life.

PREVENTING AND POSSIBLY REVERSING DISC DEGENERATION

West Palm Beach low back pain is very closely linked to degeneration of the intervertebral disc in the spine.  At its basic level, the West Palm Beach degenerated disc is recognized for a reduced number of cells as well as alteration to its tissue and extracellular matrix content. In several of these studies, rabbit discs are studied as they are similar to human discs. In one rabbit study, researchers looked at the degenerated intervertebral disc and its response to the application of broccoli sprout extract. They proposed and their study found that it had restorative and preventive effects on degenerated discs. (1) In second rabbit study, grapeseed extracts were put on degenerated discs. Due to their being natural flavonoids with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, grapeseed extracts were evaluated to find out how their inhibitory and anabolic effects would be on degenerated discs. They showed to be restorative and preventive in terms of affecting the degraded disc tissues’ collagen fibrils. (2) In a third study, aloe vera gel was utilized. Aloe vera gel stopped and reversed disc degeneration. Researchers wrote that there was a statistically significant (a big deal!) gradual reversal of degenerative changes. These changes were seen in the collagen content organization, the nucleus pulposus and annulus fibrosus cell increase, and degree of disc degeneration. (3) Moses Chiropractic will follow these stimulating studies and see how they will apply to human use. Maybe these results will inspire West Palm Beach chiropractic patients to enjoy more broccoli, use grapeseed, and find a way to enjoy some aloe vera gel?
