B vitamins. There are many B vitamins. A few are becoming
stars in the Plainville bone health and even Plainville back
pain relief spheres. Aging, osteoporosis, back pain, and
related fractures are a few of the reasons. Layden Chiropractic
shares recent 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 such
fractures. It is quite an unpleasant cycle!
Preventing osteoporosis and improving the health of bone is a reasonable
goal when considering aging. Dietary modification has been shown effective as has supplementing
with B vitamins. Recent researchers state
that support continues to expand
for the possible protective role of B vitamins especially
B2, B6, folate (B9), and B12 for bone health. Research mentioned
that eating vitamin B enriched foods is one way to go to contain
any unwanted effects of high-dose B vitamin supplementation. (1) It
is important to get the right combination of B
vitamins to be optimal for bone health. Layden Chiropractic will collaborate
with you to discover what is best for you and your
BONE, BMD, HIP FRACTURE, VITAMIN B
For a long time, Layden Chiropractic has studied the suggestions of Vitamin B for bone health, and the latest
review article of 29 studies supports testing and supplementation of B vitamins.
14 studies stated that blood tests showing low
serum levels of folate (vitamin B9) are signs of risk for reduced
bone mineral density (BMD) and fractures in older people, especially
women. Taking folate vitamin B9
(500mcg-5mg a day) enhanced BMD in another study. Taking B6 decreased
the risk of hip fracture. These findings lead the researchers to
suggest that checking folate and homocysteine blood levels in
elderly patients with osteopenia/osteoporosis is crucial. They even
go so far as to write it is mandatory. (2) Vitamin B
is valuable for Plainville bone health!
ANTI-INFLAMMATORY BENEFIT OF VITAMIN B
B vitamins may well be a link in controlling 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. Layden Chiropractic offers that these effects are beneficial
in managing back pain, musculoskeletal pain, and issues involving bone and spine health via nutrition.
