The gut-BONE connection? Yes! The gut is connected
to a wide variety of body functions with the expression
“gut-brain” connection likely being the one you’ve heard of more. The gut-bone connection – “gut-bone axis” as one article names it - is getting attention. Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation sees
Tonawanda chiropractic patients with bone conditions
like osteoporosis, so this topic is quite important.
HOW ARE THE BONE AND GUT CONNECTED?
This issue of gut-bone connection has spread
such that Osteoporosis and Bone Research Academy of the Royal Osteoporosis
Society met in October 2020. This assembly conversed about
past, present, and future research projects about
the interplay of diet, medication-use, immune development,
health and lifestyle and the function of the human gut microbiota as they affect
bone development in youth and bone maintenance and decrease in older age. The helpful use of oral probiotics
to possibly reduce bone turnover and avert
bone loss was highlighted, also. (1)
HOW IS THE GUT-BONE CONNECTION RELATED TO OSTEOPOROSIS?
As the most common metabolic skeletal
disease, osteoporosis impacts many people, men and women, due to its wearing down of the skeletal structure resulting in bone loss. Any distress of the gut microbiota can trigger
the bone remodeling balance and influence bone metabolism. (2) Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation
aims to help our Tonawanda chiropractic patients avert and/or
The rate of postmenopausal osteoporosis has
grown recently along with the swiftly aging global
population. Addressing the “gut-bone axis” was explained
as a balance of hormones, immunity, nutrient metabolism, gut microbiota metabolites,
and intestinal permeability. (3) Using traditional Chinese medicine’s
Qing’e Pills was shown to regulate intestinal flora
to improve postmenopausal osteoporosis by increasing
bone mineral density, altering gut microbiota, and positively influencing
inflammatory factors. (4) A polyphenols-rich vinegar extract was found helpful in controlling blood glucose and lipidemia in
diabetic rats as well as reducing inflammation, increasing
short chain fatty acid content, and reestablishing gut
microbiota. (5) Ask Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation about the positive impact of treating
the vagal nerve origin in the gut to have an effect on the gut.
A sizable topic for another article, the vagus
nerve - being the longest cranial nerve in the body that regulates gut function
as well as helps in the control of cardiovascular, respiratory,
endocrine, and immune systems – responds to treatment. (6) Fascinating
and effective! The options for attending to
the “gut-bone axis” and potentially averting
osteoporosis expand! Bone nutrition is important.
