CURCUMIN’S ANTI-INFLAMMATORY IMPACT ON DISEASE
For more than 4000 years, curcumin’s healthy
benefits – including its ability to counter human
diseases/conditions like diabetes, cancer, and inflammation - have been known.
A new study review focused
on curcumin’s effectiveness in managing neurological
diseases like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s ALS, and MS. (1) Your La Grande
chiropractor particularly appreciates
curcumin’s anti-inflammatory properties for dealing with
osteoarthritis (OA). A chronic degenerative disease, osteoarthritis is
not a condition with a sure cure, but curcumin’s
anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties shine in
their therapeutic value for OA management. Researchers particularly
noted the chondroprotective effects curcumin has.
(2) Compared to the common treatment of OA –
NSAIDs, corticosteroids, etc. – curcumin had a protective effect
against OA with its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties
in a study of osteoarthritis rats. One of
the multiple benefits explained in
this study was that arthritic conditions and serum biomarkers
TNF-α, IL-1β, IL-10, COMP, and CRP decreased after 4 weeks of
use. (3) Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC bets our typical, older OA patient finds difficulty walking will value
Not that curcumin isn’t tasty, but blueberries
may come to mind as the tastier choice of the two! Good thing! Blueberries, too, have anti-inflammatory positive
attributes. Rich in bioactive substances in addition to
having healthy properties - anti-oxidant, neuroprotective, anti-obesity,
anti-cancer – blueberries are documented to help treat cancer, lower
metabolic syndrome, and protect liver function via their ability to mediate nuclear receptor activity. (4) Blueberries work
at the cellular level! They slowed the production of
inflammatory factors, particularly TNF, ESR1, AGTR1 and
IGF1. (5) Another study suggested daily blueberry eating may decrease
pain, stiffness, and difficulty doing daily tasks as well as improving
gait may well better quality of life for knee OA sufferers who
find walking difficult. (6) Blueberries are tasty options to add to your nutrition plan for those suffering with inflammation.
