Pensacola patients|Sufferers with conditions
related to inflammation like osteoarthritis (OA) may
benefit from some interesting additions to their daily diet.
Blueberries and curcumin each offer anti-inflammatory benefits that
may well help manage their effects.
Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center values these simple, tasty options
to help combat inflammation by adding these to the rest of the
Pensacola chiropractic treatment plan.
CURCUMIN’S ANTI-INFLAMMATORY IMPACT ON DISEASE
For more than 4000 years, curcumin’s healthy
benefits – like its ability to lessen human
diseases/conditions like diabetes, cancer, and inflammation - have been understood.
A recent study review focused
on curcumin’s effectiveness in treating neurological
diseases like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s ALS, and MS. (1) Your Pensacola
chiropractor specifically values
curcumin’s anti-inflammatory properties for dealing with
osteoarthritis (OA). A chronic degenerative disease, osteoarthritis is
not a condition with a clear 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 offers.
(2) Up against the common treatment of OA –
NSAIDs, corticosteroids, etc. – curcumin had a protective effect
against OA with its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties
in an osteoarthritic rat study. One of
the multiple benefits described 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) Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center knows our typical, older OA patient who

Not that curcumin isn’t tasty, but blueberries
may come to mind as the tastier choice of the two! Not
a bad thing! Blueberries, too, have anti-inflammatory benefits. Rich in bioactive substances as well as other healthy properties - anti-oxidant, neuroprotective, anti-obesity,
anti-cancer – blueberries are reported to help treat cancer, lower
metabolic syndrome, and protect liver function via their ability to mediate nuclear receptor activity. (4) Blueberries function
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 reduce
pain, stiffness, and difficulty doing daily tasks as well as improving
gait may well improve quality of life for knee OA sufferers who
find walking difficult. (6) Blueberries are tasty choices to add to your nutrition plan for those experiencing the effects of inflammation.
