Baton Rouge Chiropractic Spinal Care Treatment Plan: Nutritional Tea!

Drink for health? Yes, when the drink is tea! Aging-related skeletal pain responds well to muscle and joint boosters like those in green tea. Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation offers nutritional advice like drinking green tea to our Baton Rouge 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 described 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 better method of determining risk of vertebral fracture. (1) Spinal osteoarthritis was linked with stature loss in postmenopausal women, a condition known to reduce quality of life. (2) Cartilage is the victim 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 which is where where green tea comes into play. Green tea contains catechins that foster healthy joints and skeletal muscle by reducing inflammatory mediators. (3) Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation hopes you may enjoy some beneficial green tea!

NUTRITIONAL BENEFITS

Green tea is available 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 were found to inhibit inflammation. The researchers suggested that natural ingredients provide a rational role in the management of osteoarthritis. (4) Another natural option: spearmint tea! A study of how spearmint teas influenced knee osteoarthritis discovered 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 extracted from the woody, perennial herb, rosemary. It is 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) Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation is on the lookout for some high-rosA spearmint tea to enhance the Baton Rouge chiropractic treatment plan.
