Lynchburg Chiropractic Nutrition: Gut, Bone, Chondroitin Sulfate

The gut and osteoporosis. They may not seem be connected conditions 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 today are finding ties between gut health and osteoporosis’ effect on bone health. Palmer Chiropractic Center helps Lynchburg chiropractic patients experiencing both issues!

OSTEOPOROSIS AND THE GUT HEALTH CONNECTION

Lynchburg osteoporosis is quite prevalent. So are gut issues. Gut health modification with probiotic use has become more commonplace in recent years to address chronic diseases like autoimmune and cardiovascular diseases as well as cancer and diabetes. Now, researchers are looking at the health of the gut microbiome to address bone mass regulation which affects osteoporosis and osteopenia. (1) Senile osteoporosis is associated with a reduced bone mineral density (BMD) and altered microbiota. How these are linked in postmenopausal osteoporosis is yet unknown. A study that attempted to figure this out did find that there was decreased bacterial richness and diversity in postmenopausal osteoporosis with significant difference in levels of phyla and genera in gut microbiota. (2) Palmer Chiropractic Center finds these new discoveries linking gut health and osteoporosis helpful in guiding Lynchburg osteoporosis treatment planning.

DIETARY HELP FOR OSTEOPOROSIS

Lynchburg chiropractic care of osteoporosis is multifaceted incorporating spinal manipulation via the gentle Cox® Technic protocols, exercise, and nutrition. Framing osteoporosis as a condition likely involving the microbiota of the gut, researchers are now using 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 modified levels of the serum bone markers. This dietary intervention of chondroitin and calcium holds promise to potentially ease osteoporosis and its symptomatology. (3) Palmer Chiropractic Center is well versed in the effects of chondroitin sulfate for disc health and is eager to learn more about how it may also be beneficial for osteoporosis.
