Manahawkin Chiropractic Spinal Care Treatment Plan: Nutritional Tea!

Drink for health? Yes, when the drink is tea! Aging-related skeletal pain responds well to muscle and joint boosters like those in green tea. Manahawkin Chiropractic Center presents nutritional tips like drinking green tea to our Manahawkin chiropractic patients.

AGING-RELATED SKELETAL, CARTILAGE, AND JOINT DISEASES

With aging come skeletal risks like disc height loss and changes like the two joint and muscle diseases called osteoarthritis and sarcopenia. A new study looked at the interaction of height loss and vertebral fractures in postmenopausal women. The researchers decided that age rather than the height loss was suggested to be the better method of determining vertebral fracture risk. (1) Spinal osteoarthritis was linked with stature loss in postmenopausal women, a condition documented to decrease quality of life. (2) Cartilage is the victim 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 which is where where green tea comes into play. Green tea has catechins that help maintain healthy joints and skeletal muscle by reducing inflammatory mediators. (3) Manahawkin Chiropractic Center hopes you might enjoy some beneficial green tea!

NUTRITIONAL BENEFITS

Green tea is available in a variety of forms. Another new article writes that knee osteoarthritis patients were helped by a combination of curcuminoids, collagen and green tea extract which exhibited anti-inflammatory properties. The researchers wrote that natural ingredients have a rational role in the care of osteoarthritis. (4) Another natural option: spearmint tea! A report of how spearmint teas influenced knee osteoarthritis found that a commercial spearmint tea bettered stiffness and physical disability while a spearmint tea brewed from a high-rosmarinic acid (high-rosA) variety significantly reduced pain. (5) Rosmarinic acid is extracted from the woody, perennial herb, rosemary. it’s a polyphenolic compound with antioxidant properties. Polyphenols are written 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) Manahawkin Chiropractic Center is on the lookout for some high-rosA spearmint tea to add to the Manahawkin chiropractic treatment plan.
