Nashua 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. Moriarty Chiropractic appreciates these easy, tasty ways to help combat inflammation in addition to the rest of the Nashua 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 known. A new study review highlighted curcumin’s effectiveness in managing neurological diseases like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s ALS, and MS. (1) Your Nashua chiropractor specifically values curcumin’s anti-inflammatory properties for dealing with osteoarthritis (OA). A chronic degenerative disease, osteoarthritis isn’t a condition with a clear cure, but curcumin’s anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties excel in their therapeutic value for OA management. Researchers specifically noted the chondroprotective effects curcumin offers. (2) Compared to the usual treatment of OA – NSAIDs, corticosteroids, etc. – curcumin offered a protective effect against OA with its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties in an osteoarthritic rat study. One of the multiple benefits detailed in this study was that arthritic conditions as well as serum biomarkers TNF-α, IL-1β, IL-10, COMP, and CRP reduced after 4 weeks of use.

THE ANTI-INFLAMMATORY PROPERTIES OF BLUEBERRIES
Not that curcumin isn’t tasty, but blueberries may come to mind as being the tastier of the two! Not a bad 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 intervene in 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 reduce pain, stiffness, and difficulty doing daily tasks as well as bettering gait may well better quality of life for knee OA sufferers who find walking troublesome. (6) Blueberries are tasty picks to add to your nutrition plan for those experiencing the effects of inflammation.
