Brooks Chiropractic Spinal Care Treatment Plan: Nutritional Tea!

Drink your way to health? When the chosen drink is tea, it’s quite possible! Skeletal pain arising from aging-related conditions responds well to muscle and joint boosters like those in green tea. Soft Health and Healing Clinic presents nutritional tips like drinking green tea to our Brooks 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 recent study looked at 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 method of determining risk of vertebral fracture. (1) Spinal osteoarthritis was associated with stature loss in postmenopausal women, a situation 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 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) Soft Health and Healing Clinic hopes you may enjoy some beneficial green tea!

NUTRITIONAL BENEFITS

Green tea comes in a variety of types. An additional 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 suggested that natural ingredients have a rational role in the care of osteoarthritis. (4) Another natural option: spearmint tea! A study of how spearmint teas influenced knee osteoarthritis discovered that a commercial spearmint tea improved stiffness and physical disability while a spearmint tea brewed from a high-rosmarinic acid (high-rosA) variety significantly reduced pain. (5) Rosmarinic acid is taken 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) Soft Health and Healing Clinic is on the lookout for some high-rosA spearmint tea to add to the Brooks chiropractic treatment plan.
