Fernandina Beach Chiropractic Nutrition: Gut, Bone, Chondroitin Sulfate

The gut and osteoporosis. 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 digestion problems. Researchers today are discovering ties between gut health and osteoporosis’ effect on bone health. Amelia Chiropractic Clinic helps Fernandina Beach chiropractic patients experiencing both issues!

OSTEOPOROSIS AND THE GUT HEALTH CONNECTION

Fernandina Beach osteoporosis is quite prevalent. So are gut issues. Gut health change with probiotic use has become more commonplace recently to address chronic diseases like autoimmune and cardiovascular diseases as well as cancer and diabetes. Today, 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 decreased 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 difference in levels of phyla and genera in gut microbiota. (2) Amelia Chiropractic Clinic sees these new discoveries connecting gut health and osteoporosis as being useful in planning the Fernandina Beach osteoporosis treatment plan.

DIETARY HELP FOR OSTEOPOROSIS

Fernandina Beach chiropractic care of osteoporosis is complex incorporating spinal manipulation by way of the gentle Cox® Technic protocols, exercise, and nutrition. Looking at osteoporosis as a condition likely involving the microbiota of the gut, researchers are now trying dietary approaches to address osteoporosis. Nutritionally, a chondroitin sulfate/calcium complex improved the BMD and microstructure of the osteoporotic femur bone in a rat study. It also changed the serum bone turnover marker levels. This dietary intervention of chondroitin and calcium holds promise to potentially ease osteoporosis and its symptomatology. (3) Amelia Chiropractic Clinic is very familiar with the effects of chondroitin sulfate for disc health and is eager to learn more about how it may also be beneficial for osteoporosis.
