Sandy Springs 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. Cross Chiropractic Center presents nutritional tips like drinking green tea to our Sandy Springs 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 better way to determine vertebral fracture risk. (1) Spinal osteoarthritis was linked with stature loss in postmenopausal women, a situation known to decrease quality of life. (2) Cartilage is the victim of these diseases’ inflammatory and degenerative processes. The loss of strength and muscle mass that accompanies sarcopenia requires attention to quantity and quality of skeletal muscle mass. This is where green tea comes into play. Green tea has catechins that foster healthy joints and skeletal muscle by reducing inflammatory mediators. (3) Cross Chiropractic Center believes you might enjoy some beneficial green tea!

NUTRITIONAL BENEFITS

Green tea comes in many types. An additional recent article writes that knee osteoarthritis patients benefitted from a combination of curcuminoids, collagen and green tea extract which exhibited anti-inflammatory properties. The researchers suggested that natural ingredients provide a rational role in the management of osteoarthritis. (4) Another natural option: spearmint tea! A report of how spearmint teas affected knee osteoarthritis found 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 extracted from the woody, perennial herb, rosemary. It is 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) Cross Chiropractic Center is on the hunt for some high-rosA spearmint tea to add to the Sandy Springs chiropractic treatment plan.
