A Tasty Way to Enhance Paramus Bone Health Cherries!

Aging bones. None of us can evade signs of aging, and our bones reveal our age. As we age, we lose bone density. Some of us find that we have osteoarthritis of bone. We all would enjoy not having to deal with aging and bone loss and osteoarthritis, but truth be told: many of us will not. New research about how tart cherries may help block bone loss and osteoarthritis and improve bone health is refreshing news to Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center. They may be a tasty way for our Paramus chiropractic patients to eat their way to healthier bones!

BONE LOSS AND OSTEOARTHRITIS

Osteoarthritis, a degenerative joint disease, often leads to disability. There is no cure nor effective treatment yet discovered to stop it explains one set of researchers. NSAIDs and analgesics help with the pain but not with the course of osteoarthritis. Using drugs sometimes brings about some adverse side effects for some patients over time which lead a group of researchers to check into what else may help. In their review of peer-reviewed articles, they reported that nutrition can better osteoarthritis symptoms. Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center has seen this often in its Paramus chiropractic practice! As these researchers found, glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate “robustly” delay the progression of knee osteoarthritis. While diet changes to correct lipid and cholesterol numbers, enhance vitamin levels and address overweight issues are useful in osteoarthritis care, including these two nutrients is, too.  (1) Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center has more information on them both. 

CONSUMING TART CHERRIES

A likely tasty way to supplement the diet for spine care is ingesting tart cherries. In this springtime in the US that finds blooming cherry trees everywhere, it’s the ideal time for this new information about the benefits of cherries. But how much of a good thing like tart cherries is healthy and beneficial? Of late, researchers explain that tart cherry may be a natural alternative to drug therapy to stop bone loss in diseases like rheumatoid arthritis and others. They report that tart cherry protected bone structure from inflammation-induced bone loss and (unlike infliximab, a common drug) moderately improved the decrease in bone stiffness. (2) That is beneficial! The researchers advised that tart cherry may be useful to avoid future fragility fractures in the presence of highly chronic inflammation. (2) Further, another set of researchers describe how the immune and endocrine systems play a role in age-related bone loss. Anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory and prebiotic foods like tart cherries can possibly counter this occurrence. In testing 5% and 10% Montmorency tart cherry intake, researchers found significantly greater bone thickness in patients using the cherry than the control group patients. They concluded that cherry supplementation (5% and 10%) bettered bone mineral density down to the trabecular and cortical bone microarchitecture! (3) All from cherries! Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center sees this as a simple way to improve bone and is certain our Paramus chiropractic patients will, too!
