Paramus Chiropractic Tip for Osteoporotic Bone Health: Ginger, FLL and Turmeric

Phytomedicine. A new concept? Not really. It’s the system of using plants to address human illness. It is been around most of humanity’s existence, but today we are more accustomed to pharmacological medicine. Looking to phytomedicine may benefit many of us, especially post-menopausal women and others who suffer with osteoporosis. Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center reports on some recent findings about such plant-based therapies including ginger along with others like turmeric for Paramus osteoporosis treatment and side benefits of enhanced bone health and bone regeneration.

OSTEOPOROSIS AND POST-MENOPAUSAL WOMEN: BONE FRACTURES, BMD

Women are very aware of osteoporosis. With DEXA scans and concerns for fracture risk in the news, Paramus women are prompted to check the status of their bones. Osteoporosis is best explained as an imbalance between bone formation and bone resorption; both are regulated by nitric oxide. When women get to menopause, estrogen levels drop which makes their fracture risk increase. In a new study, women were treated with a nutraceutical containing Paullinia cupana, Muira puama, ginger, and L-citrulline, known to enhance fracture healing in rat studies. Nitric oxide was increased along with other biomarkers like cGMP and calcium deposition. Bone mineral density increased as bone resorption was reduced and calcium deposition was improved.

GINGER AND TURMERIC FOR OSTEOPOROTIC BONE HEALTH

Paramus chiropractic treatment plans at Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center are based on well-done research studies and experience. Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center values this well-designed prospective triple-blind randomized controlled trial. Now, that’s a study! Its goal is to measure the effect of ginger and turmeric on quality of life, body composition, bone mineral density (BMD) and osteoporosis biomarkers for osteoporotic post-menopausal women. Since ginger and turmeric are pretty inexpensive, this study’s results could surely affect the prevention and treatment of osteoporosis.

FLL AND CURCUMIN (TURMERIC) FOR BONE PRESERVATION AND REGENERATION

Fructus Ligustri Lucidi (FLL) is an olive family plant used for its antioxidant and anti-aging properties to treat osteoporosis for more than 1000 years. It’s been around a long time! Its bone-preserving properties may come from the effect FLL seems to have on the microecology of the intestine. Intestinal changes – changes to the gut’s microecology – come with aging, and FLL seems to influence that. As an extra effect, cognitive function got better. (3) Further, using both curcumin and Fructus Ligustri Lucidi enhanced bone regeneration, positioning it as a potential alternative herbal approach to treat and prevent osteoporosis. (4)
