B vitamins. There are many B vitamins. A few are becoming
stars in the Tonawanda bone health and even Tonawanda back
pain relief areas. Aging, osteoporosis, back pain, and
related fractures are a handful of the reasons. Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation
shares recent research behind the
testing of B vitamin levels and adjusting any reduced
levels with diet and supplementation as applicable.
AGING, OSTEOPOROSIS, FRACTURE, VITAMIN B
We are aging. We’re not alone in it.
Globally, aging is growing. Along with aging comes the growth of osteoporotic
fracture incidence and morbidity, mortality, and cost related to those
fractures. It is quite an unpleasant cycle!
Preventing osteoporosis and improving the health of bone is a fair
goal when considering aging. Dietary modification has been shown good as has supplementing
with B vitamins. Recent researchers wrote
that support continues to enlarge
for the possible protective role of B vitamins particularly
B2, B6, folate (B9), and B12 for bone health. Research mentioned
that eating vitamin B enriched foods is one option to contain
any adverse effects of high-dose B vitamin supplementation. (1) It’s important to get the right blend of B
vitamins to do the best for bone health. Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation will work
with you to find out what is best for you and your
BONE, BMD, HIP FRACTURE, VITAMIN B
For a long time, Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation has read
about the suggestions of Vitamin B for bone health, and the newest
review article of 29 studies supports testing and supplementation of B vitamins.
14 studies stated that blood tests showing low
serum levels of folate (vitamin B9) are signs of risk for reduced
bone mineral density (BMD) and fractures in older people, especially
women. Taking folate vitamin B9
(500mcg-5mg a day) enhanced BMD in another study. Taking B6 reduced
the risk of hip fracture. These findings lead the researchers to
propose that checking folate and homocysteine blood levels in
elderly patients with osteopenia/osteoporosis is crucial. They even
went so far as to state it is mandatory. (2) Vitamin B
is imperative for Tonawanda bone health!
ANTI-INFLAMMATORY BENEFIT OF VITAMIN B
B vitamins may well be a link in managing inflammatory
chemicals through homocysteine control, methylation, decreasing
CRP, etc. The roles of B vitamins – thiamine, pyridoxine, and cyanocobalamin –
in back pain and other musculoskeletal disorders lean toward being anti-inflammatory,
anti-nociceptive, neuroprotective, and neuromodulatory. (3) Big words. Big
concepts. Big deals. Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation offers that these effects are beneficial
in managing back pain, musculoskeletal pain, and issues involving bone and spine health via nutrition.
