Malverne 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 nicely to muscle and joint boosters like those in green tea. Malverne Health & Wellness has nutritional advice like drinking green tea to our Malverne 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 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 way to determine vertebral fracture risk. (1) Spinal osteoarthritis was associated with stature loss in postmenopausal women, a situation known 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 necessitates attention to quantity and quality of skeletal muscle mass. This is where green tea comes into play. Green tea contains catechins that help maintain healthy joints and skeletal muscle by reducing inflammatory mediators. (3) Malverne Health & Wellness hopes you might enjoy some beneficial green tea!

NUTRITIONAL BENEFITS

Green tea comes in a variety of types. An additional recent article reports that knee osteoarthritis patients were helped by a combination of curcuminoids, collagen and green tea extract which were shown to inhibit inflammation. The researchers suggested that natural ingredients have a rational role in the care 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 reduced pain. (5) Rosmarinic acid is extracted from the woody, perennial herb, rosemary. it’s 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) Malverne Health & Wellness is on the lookout for some high-rosA spearmint tea to add to the Malverne chiropractic treatment plan.
