may well assist in the management of their effects.
Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries values these simple, tasty options
to help combat inflammation by adding these to the rest of the
Manchester chiropractic treatment plan.
CURCUMIN’S ANTI-INFLAMMATORY IMPACT ON DISEASE
For over 4000 years, curcumin’s healthy
benefits – like its ability to counter human
diseases/conditions like diabetes, cancer, and inflammation - have been known.
A recent study review highlighted curcumin’s effectiveness in managing neurological
diseases like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s ALS, and MS. (1) Your Manchester
chiropractor specifically appreciates
curcumin’s anti-inflammatory properties for dealing with
osteoarthritis (OA). A chronic degenerative disease, osteoarthritis isn’t an issue with a sure cure, but curcumin’s
anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties shine in
their therapeutic value for OA management. Researchers particularly
noted the chondroprotective effects curcumin offers.
(2) Compared to the usual treatment of OA –
NSAIDs, corticosteroids, etc. – curcumin had a protective effect
against OA with its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties
in a study of osteoarthritis rats. One of
the multiple benefits explained 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) Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries knows our typical, older OA patient who

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 as well as other healthy properties - anti-oxidant, neuroprotective, anti-obesity,
anti-cancer – blueberries are documented to help treat cancer, reduce
metabolic syndrome, and protect liver function via their ability to intervene
in nuclear receptor activity. (4) Blueberries function
at the cellular level! They slowed the production of
inflammatory factors, specifically TNF, ESR1, AGTR1 and
IGF1. (5) Another study recommended daily blueberry eating may reduce
pain, stiffness, and difficulty doing daily tasks as well as bettering
gait may well improve 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.
