Millville Chiropractic Nutrition: Gut, Bone, Chondroitin Sulfate

The gut and osteoporosis. Two seemingly unconnected conditions may actually be connected beyond the fact that they both take place in the body. Osteoporosis’ effect is often seen in deteriorated bone. Gut issues’ effect is often seen in digestion problems. Researchers now are discovering ties between gut health and osteoporosis’ effect on bone health. Wilson Family Chiropractic helps Millville chiropractic patients experiencing both issues!

OSTEOPOROSIS AND THE GUT HEALTH CONNECTION

Millville osteoporosis is quite prevalent. Gut issues are, too. Gut health modification via the use of probiotics has grown to be more commonplace in recent years 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 linked to a reduced bone mineral density (BMD) and altered microbiota. How these are linked in postmenopausal osteoporosis is yet unknown. A study that tried to sort this out did find that there was reduced bacterial richness and diversity in postmenopausal osteoporosis with significant contrast in levels of phyla and genera in gut microbiota. (2) Wilson Family Chiropractic sees these new discoveries involving gut health and osteoporosis as being useful in planning the Millville osteoporosis treatment plan.

DIETARY HELP FOR OSTEOPOROSIS

Millville chiropractic care of osteoporosis is complex including spinal manipulation via the gentle Cox® Technic protocols, exercise, and nutrition. Looking at osteoporosis as a condition likely encompassing the microbiota of the gut, researchers are now using dietary approaches to deal with osteoporosis. Nutritionally, a chondroitin sulfate/calcium complex enhanced the BMD and microstructure of femur bone in rats with osteoporosis. It also modified the serum bone turnover marker levels. This dietary intervention of chondroitin and calcium holds promise to potentially ease osteoporosis and its symptomatology. (3) Wilson Family Chiropractic is very familiar with the effects of chondroitin sulfate for disc health and is enthused it may also be beneficial for osteoporosis.
