Montreal Chiropractic Spinal Care Treatment Plan: Nutritional Tea!

Drink your way to health? When the chosen drink is tea, it’s quite possible! Skeletal pain arising from aging-related conditions responds well to muscle and joint boosters like those in green tea. Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic has nutritional tips like drinking green tea to our Montreal 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 new study looked at 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 situation documented to reduce quality of life. (2) Cartilage is the victim of the inflammatory and degenerative aspects of these diseases. The loss of strength and muscle mass that accompanies sarcopenia necessitates attention to quantity and quality of skeletal muscle mass which is where where green tea comes into play. Green tea has catechins that foster healthy joints and skeletal muscle by decreasing inflammatory mediators. (3) Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic believes you may enjoy some beneficial green tea!

NUTRITIONAL BENEFITS

Green tea is available in many forms. An additional recent article reports that knee osteoarthritis patients benefitted from a combination of curcuminoids, collagen and green tea extract which exhibited anti-inflammatory properties. The researchers suggested that natural ingredients provide a rational role in the care of osteoarthritis. (4) Another natural option: spearmint tea! A study of how spearmint teas influenced knee osteoarthritis discovered that a commercial spearmint tea bettered stiffness and physical disability while a spearmint tea brewed from a high-rosmarinic acid (high-rosA) variety significantly reduced pain. (5) Rosmarinic acid is extracted from the woody, perennial herb, rosemary. It is a polyphenolic compound with antioxidant properties. Polyphenols are written 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) Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic is on the hunt for some high-rosA spearmint tea to add to the Montreal chiropractic treatment plan.
