Carrolltown Chiropractic Spinal Care Treatment Plan: Nutritional Tea!

Drink for health? When the chosen drink is tea, it’s quite possible! Aging-related skeletal pain responds well to muscle and joint boosters like those in green tea. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation has nutritional tips like drinking green tea to our Carrolltown chiropractic patients.

AGING-RELATED SKELETAL, CARTILAGE, AND JOINT DISEASES

Skeletal risks like disc height loss and changes like the two joint and muscle diseases called osteoarthritis and sarcopenia come with aging. A new study described how height loss and vertebral fractures in postmenopausal women were linked. The researchers decided that age rather than the height loss was suggested to be the superior way to determine risk of vertebral fracture. (1) Spinal osteoarthritis was associated with stature loss in postmenopausal women, a condition documented to reduce quality of life. (2) Cartilage is the sufferer of these diseases’ inflammatory and degenerative processes. Sarcopenia’s loss of strength and muscle mass requires attention to quantity and quality of skeletal muscle mass. This is where green tea comes into play. Green tea has catechins that help maintain healthy joints and skeletal muscle by reducing inflammatory mediators. (3) Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation hopes you might enjoy some beneficial green tea!

NUTRITIONAL BENEFITS

Green tea comes in a variety of forms. An additional recent article reports that knee osteoarthritis patients benefitted from a mixture of curcuminoids, collagen and green tea extract which were found to inhibit inflammation. The researchers suggested that natural ingredients have a rational role in the management of osteoarthritis. (4) Another natural option: spearmint tea! A report of how spearmint teas affected knee osteoarthritis discovered that a commercial spearmint tea bettered stiffness and physical disability while a spearmint tea brewed from a high-rosmarinic acid (high-rosA) variety significantly decreased pain. (5) Rosmarinic acid is extracted from the woody, perennial herb, rosemary. It is a polyphenolic compound with antioxidant properties. Polyphenols are reported to be anti-cancer, anti-tumor cell proliferation, anti-apoptosis (cell death), anti-metastasis, and anti-inflammatory. Rosmarinic acid is found in plant species like the mint. (6) Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation is on the lookout for some high-rosA spearmint tea to enhance the Carrolltown chiropractic treatment plan.
