A Tasty Way to Enhance Montreal Bone Health Cherries!

Aging bones. None of us can avoid signs of aging, and our bones reveal our age. As we age, we lose bone density. Some of us find that we have osteoarthritis of bone. We all would love to escape aging and bone loss and osteoarthritis, but truth be told: many of us won’t. New information that tart cherries may help prevent bone loss and osteoarthritis and improve bone health is pleasing news to Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic. They may be a tasty way for our Montreal chiropractic patients to do what they can to keep their bones healthy!

BONE LOSS AND OSTEOARTHRITIS

Osteoarthritis, a degenerative joint disease, often leads to disability. There is no cure nor effective treatment yet described in published research to halt it explains one set of researchers. NSAIDs and analgesics help with the pain but not with the course of osteoarthritis. Using drugs sometimes brings about some adverse side effects for some patients over time which lead a group of researchers to check into what else may help. In their analysis of peer-reviewed articles, they reported that nutrition can better osteoarthritis symptoms. Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic has seen this often in its Montreal chiropractic practice! As these researchers found, glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate “robustly” delay the progression of knee osteoarthritis. While diet changes to improve lipid and cholesterol numbers, enhance vitamin levels and address overweight levels are valuable in osteoarthritis care, adding these two nutrients is, too.  (1) Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic has more information on them both. 

CONSUMING TART CHERRIES

A likely tasty way to supplement the diet for spine care is eating tart cherries. In this springtime in the US that finds blooming cherry trees everywhere, it’s the perfect time for this new information about the benefits of cherries. But how much of a good thing like tart cherries is healthy and beneficial? Recently, researchers explain that tart cherry may be a natural alternative to drug therapy to stop bone loss in diseases like rheumatoid arthritis and others. They report that tart cherry protected bone structure from inflammation-induced bone loss and (unlike infliximab, a common drug) moderately improved the decline in bone stiffness. (2) That’s beneficial! The researchers suggested that tart cherry may help avoid future fragility fractures in the presence of highly chronic inflammation. (2) Further, another set of researchers note how the immune and endocrine systems play a role in age-related bone loss. Anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory and prebiotic foods like tart cherries can potentially offset this occurrence. In trying 5% and 10% Montmorency tart cherry intake, researchers found significantly greater bone thickness in patients receiving the cherry than the control group patients. They determined that cherry supplementation (5% and 10%) bettered bone mineral density down to the trabecular and cortical bone microarchitecture! (3) All from cherries! Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic sees this as a simple way to improve bone and is sure our Montreal chiropractic patients will, too!
