B vitamins. There are many B vitamins. Some are becoming
stars in the Fernandina Beach bone health and even Fernandina Beach back
pain relief worlds. Aging, osteoporosis, back pain, and
related fractures are a handful of the reasons. Amelia Chiropractic Clinic
shares new research behind the
testing of B vitamin levels and adjusting any reduced
levels with diet and supplementation as appropriate.
AGING, OSTEOPOROSIS, FRACTURE, VITAMIN B
We are aging. We are 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’s quite a vicious cycle!
Preventing osteoporosis and enhancing the health of bone is a reasonable
goal when considering aging. Dietary modification has been shown valuable as has the supplementation of B vitamins. Recent researchers wrote
that support keeps enlarging
for the possible protective role of B vitamins particularly
B2, B6, folate (B9), and B12 for bone health. Research suggested
that eating vitamin B enriched foods is one way to go to contain
any adverse effects of high-dose B vitamin supplementation. (1) It
is important to get the right mix of B
vitamins to do the best for bone health. Amelia Chiropractic Clinic will collaborate
with you to find out what is best for you and your
BONE, BMD, HIP FRACTURE, VITAMIN B
For years, Amelia Chiropractic Clinic has studied 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 reported that blood tests revealing low
serum levels of folate (vitamin B9) are indicators of risk for reduced
bone mineral density (BMD) and fractures in older people, especially
women. Taking folate vitamin B9
(500mcg-5mg a day) improved BMD in another study. Taking B6 reduced
the risk of hip fracture. These findings prompted the researchers to
suggest 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 Fernandina Beach bone health!
ANTI-INFLAMMATORY BENEFIT OF VITAMIN B
B vitamins may well be a link in managing inflammatory
chemicals through homocysteine control, methylation, lowering
CRP, etc. The roles of B vitamins – thiamine, pyridoxine, and cyanocobalamin –
in back pain and other musculoskeletal disorders tend toward being anti-inflammatory,
anti-nociceptive, neuroprotective, and neuromodulatory. (3) Big words. Big
concepts. Big deals. Amelia Chiropractic Clinic offers that these effects are helpful
in dealing with back pain, musculoskeletal pain, and issues involving bone and spine health via nutrition.
