McHenry Chiropractic Spinal Care Treatment Plan: Nutritional Tea!

Drink for 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. Spengel Chiropractic has nutritional advice like drinking green tea to our McHenry 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 new study described 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 way to determine vertebral fracture risk. (1) Spinal osteoarthritis was associated with stature loss in postmenopausal women, a condition documented to decrease 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 has catechins that foster healthy joints and skeletal muscle by decreasing inflammatory mediators. (3) Spengel Chiropractic believes you may enjoy some beneficial green tea!

NUTRITIONAL BENEFITS

Green tea comes in a variety of forms. An additional new article writes that knee osteoarthritis patients benefitted from a mixture of curcuminoids, collagen and green tea extract which exhibited anti-inflammatory properties. The researchers wrote that natural ingredients provide a rational role in the management 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 decreased pain. (5) Rosmarinic acid is taken 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) Spengel Chiropractic is on the hunt for some high-rosA spearmint tea to enhance the McHenry chiropractic treatment plan.
