Tasty West Palm Beach Anti-Inflammatory Goodies: Blueberries and Curcumin

West Palm Beach patients|Sufferers with conditions related to inflammation like osteoarthritis (OA) may benefit from some interesting additions to their daily diet. Blueberries and curcumin each extend anti-inflammatory benefits that may well assist in the management of their effects. Moses Chiropractic values these simple, tasty options to help combat inflammation by adding these to the rest of the West Palm Beach chiropractic treatment plan.

CURCUMIN’S ANTI-INFLAMMATORY IMPACT ON DISEASE

For over 4000 years, curcumin’s healthy benefits – including its ability to counter human diseases/conditions like diabetes, cancer, and inflammation - have been documented. A recent review of studies highlighted curcumin’s effectiveness in treating neurological diseases like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s ALS, and MS. (1) Your West Palm Beach chiropractor particularly appreciates curcumin’s anti-inflammatory properties for dealing with osteoarthritis (OA). A chronic degenerative disease, osteoarthritis isn’t an issue with a clear cure, but curcumin’s anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties shine in their therapeutic value for OA management. Researchers particularly described the chondroprotective effects curcumin has. (2) Up against the common treatment of OA – NSAIDs, corticosteroids, etc. – curcumin offered a protective effect against OA with its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties in an osteoarthritic rat study. One of the multiple benefits described in this study was that arthritic conditions and serum biomarkers TNF-α, IL-1β, IL-10, COMP, and CRP reduced after 4 weeks of use. (3) Moses Chiropractic bets our typical, older OA patient who has trouble walking will appreciate this!

BLUEBERRIES’ ANTI-INFLAMMATORY BENEFITS

Not that curcumin IS NOT tasty, but blueberries may come to mind as the tastier choice of the two! Good thing! Blueberries, too, have anti-inflammatory benefits. Rich in bioactive substances in addition to having healthy properties - anti-oxidant, neuroprotective, anti-obesity, anti-cancer blueberries are reported to help treat cancer, lower metabolic syndrome, and protect liver function via their ability to mediate nuclear receptor activity. (4) Blueberries work at the cellular level! They slackened the production of inflammatory factors, particularly TNF, ESR1, AGTR1 and IGF1. (5) Another study suggested daily blueberry eating may decrease pain, stiffness, and difficulty performing daily tasks as well as improving gait may well better quality of life for knee OA sufferers who find walking troublesome. (6) Blueberries are tasty picks to add to your nutrition plan for those suffering with inflammation.
