Disc degeneration - Lycopene

Lycopene alleviates disc degeneration under oxidative stress through the Nrf2 signaling pathway

The results also showed that lycopene reduced H2O2-induced decomposition of cartilage extracellular matrix in (NPCs) nucleus pulposus cells

In conclusion, our findings suggested that lycopene may alleviate disc degeneration under oxidative stress through the Nrf2 signaling pathway.

Lycopene is a plant pigment that gives foods like tomatoes, grapefruit, and watermelon their red and pink colors. Lycopene is an antioxidant part of the carotenoid family that can fight free-radical damage to the cells in your body and possibly help reduce your risk of certain diseases.

This is a great study reminding us that the body is a synergistic system and often a condition, damage or pain is a complex result of a combination of chemical, physical, and mental stress on the spine and nervous systems.

Unfortunately you cannot buy health in a pill, potion, or lotion. You can’t replace vital foundations of health such as nutrition, sleep, exercise with drugs.

Most do not realize the food, drinks, recreational drugs, medications, ect have a chemical effect on our body’s structural parts. This is a form of chemical stress that causes spinal system breakdown.

The good news is with a healthy diet you can combat the daily chemical stresses we encounter and combined with corrective chiropractic increase your changes for a health spine and nervous system.
