West Palm Beach Chiropractic Tip for Osteoporotic Bone Health: Ginger, FLL and Turmeric

Phytomedicine. It may be a new concept for some. It is the use of plants to help human disease. It is been around most of humanity’s existence, but today we are more accustomed to pharmacological medicine. Looking to phytomedicine may benefit many of us, especially post-menopausal women and others who suffer with osteoporosis. Moses Chiropractic shares some recent news about such plant-based treatments including ginger along with others like turmeric for West Palm Beach osteoporosis treatment and side benefits of enhanced bone health and bone regeneration.

OSTEOPOROSIS AND POST-MENOPAUSAL WOMEN: BONE FRACTURES, BMD

Women are quite aware of osteoporosis. With DEXA scans and concerns for fracture risk in the news, West Palm Beach women are prompted to check the status of their bones. Osteoporosis is best described as an imbalance between bone formation and bone resorption; both are controlled by nitric oxide. When women reach menopause, estrogen levels drop which increases their fracture risk. In a new study, women were treated with a nutraceutical containing Paullinia cupana, Muira puama, ginger, and L-citrulline, known to help fractures heal in rat studies. Nitric oxide was increased along with other biomarkers like cGMP and calcium deposition. Bone mineral density increased as bone resorption was reduced and calcium deposition was improved.

GINGER AND TURMERIC FOR OSTEOPOROTIC BONE HEALTH

West Palm Beach chiropractic treatment plans at Moses Chiropractic are based on well-done research studies and experience. Moses Chiropractic appreciates this well-designed prospective triple-blind randomized controlled trial. That took a lot to set up, no doubt! Its goal is to measure the effect of ginger and turmeric on quality of life, body composition, bone mineral density (BMD) and osteoporosis biomarkers for osteoporotic post-menopausal women. Since ginger and turmeric are relatively inexpensive, this study’s results could surely impact the prevention and treatment of osteoporosis.

FLL AND CURCUMIN (TURMERIC) FOR BONE PRESERVATION AND REGENERATION

Fructus Ligustri Lucidi (FLL) is an olive family plant used for its antioxidant and anti-aging properties to treat osteoporosis for more than 1000 years. It’s been around a long time! Its bone-preserving properties may stem from the influence FLL seems to have on the microecology of the intestine. Intestinal changes – changes to the gut’s microecology – come with aging, and FLL appears to influence that. As an extra effect, cognitive function improved. (3) Further, combining curcumin and Fructus Ligustri Lucidi enhanced bone regeneration, positioning it as a potential alternative herbal way to treat and prevent osteoporosis. (4)
