Plainville Chiropractic Nutrition: Gut, Bone, Chondroitin Sulfate

Osteoporosis and the gut. 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 bone health deterioration. Gut issues’ effect is often seen in digestive problems. Researchers today are discovering ties between gut health and osteoporosis’ effect on bone health. Layden Chiropractic helps Plainville chiropractic patients experiencing both issues!

OSTEOPOROSIS AND THE GUT HEALTH CONNECTION

Plainville osteoporosis is quite prevalent. Gut issues are, too. Gut health change with probiotic use has grown to be more commonplace recently 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 deal with bone mass regulation which affects osteoporosis and osteopenia. (1) Senile osteoporosis is associated with a reduced bone mineral density (BMD) and modified microbiota. How these are linked in postmenopausal osteoporosis is not yet known. A study that attempted to figure this out did discover that there was reduced bacterial richness and diversity in postmenopausal osteoporosis with significant contrast in levels of phyla and genera in gut microbiota. (2) Layden Chiropractic finds these new discoveries involving gut health and osteoporosis useful in planning the Plainville osteoporosis treatment plan.

DIETARY HELP FOR OSTEOPOROSIS

Plainville chiropractic care of osteoporosis is multifaceted including spinal manipulation by way of the gentle Cox® Technic protocols, exercise, and nutrition. Framing osteoporosis as a condition likely encompassing the microbiota of the gut, researchers are now trying 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 the serum bone turnover marker levels. This dietary intervention of chondroitin and calcium holds promise to potentially ease osteoporosis and its symptomatology. (3) Layden Chiropractic is well versed in the effects of chondroitin sulfate for disc health and is excited that it may also be beneficial for osteoporosis.
