Tonawanda Chiropractic Nutrition: Gut, Bone, Chondroitin Sulfate

Osteoporosis and the gut. Two seemingly unconnected conditions may actually be connected beyond the fact that they both are internal body issues. Osteoporosis’ effect is often seen in deteriorated bone. Gut issues’ effect is often seen in digestive problems. Researchers now are discovering ties between gut health and osteoporosis’ effect on bone health. Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation helps Tonawanda chiropractic patients experiencing both issues!

OSTEOPOROSIS AND THE GUT HEALTH CONNECTION

Tonawanda osteoporosis is very common. Gut issues are, too. Gut health change with probiotic use has become more mainstream recently to address chronic diseases like autoimmune and cardiovascular diseases as well as diabetes and cancer. Now, researchers are looking at the health of the gut microbiome to deal with bone mass regulation which influences osteoporosis and osteopenia. (1) Senile osteoporosis is associated with a reduced bone mineral density (BMD) and modified microbiota. How these are associated in postmenopausal osteoporosis is yet unknown. A study that attempted to sort this out did find that there was decreased bacterial richness and diversity in postmenopausal osteoporosis with significant disparity in levels of phyla and genera in gut microbiota. (2) Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation finds these new discoveries connecting gut health and osteoporosis useful in guiding Tonawanda osteoporosis treatment planning.

DIETARY HELP FOR OSTEOPOROSIS

Tonawanda chiropractic care of osteoporosis is multifaceted incorporating spinal manipulation via the gentle Cox® Technic protocols, exercise, and nutrition. Framing osteoporosis as a condition likely encompassing the microbiota of the gut, researchers are now trying dietary approaches to deal with osteoporosis. Nutritionally, a chondroitin sulfate/calcium complex improved the BMD and microstructure of femur bone in rats with osteoporosis. It also changed levels of the serum bone markers. This dietary intervention of chondroitin and calcium holds promise to potentially ease osteoporosis and related symptoms. (3) Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation is very familiar with the effects of chondroitin sulfate for disc health and is excited that it may also be beneficial for osteoporosis.
