Paramus 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. Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center offers nutritional advice like drinking green tea to our Paramus 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 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 risk of vertebral fracture. (1) Spinal osteoarthritis was linked with stature loss in postmenopausal women, a condition documented to reduce quality of life. (2) Cartilage is the victim of the inflammatory and degenerative aspects of these diseases. Sarcopenia’s loss of strength and muscle mass necessitates attention to quantity and quality of skeletal muscle mass which is where where green tea comes into play. Green tea has catechins that help maintain healthy joints and skeletal muscle by reducing inflammatory mediators. (3) Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center believes 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 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 care of osteoarthritis. (4) Another natural option: spearmint tea! A report of how spearmint teas influenced 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 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) Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center is on the hunt for some high-rosA spearmint tea to enhance the Paramus chiropractic treatment plan.
