New Roads Chiropractic Nutrition: Gut, Bone, Chondroitin Sulfate

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

OSTEOPOROSIS AND THE GUT HEALTH CONNECTION

New Roads osteoporosis is very common. Gut issues are, too. Gut health change via the use of probiotics has grown to be more commonplace in recent years to address chronic diseases like autoimmune and cardiovascular diseases as well as diabetes and cancer. 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 associated with a reduced bone mineral density (BMD) and modified microbiota. How these are associated in postmenopausal osteoporosis is not yet known. A study that tried to figure this out did discover that there was decreased bacterial richness and diversity in postmenopausal osteoporosis with significant disparity in levels of phyla and genera in gut microbiota. (2) New Roads Chiropractic Center finds these new discoveries connecting gut health and osteoporosis helpful in planning the New Roads osteoporosis treatment plan.

DIETARY HELP FOR OSTEOPOROSIS

New Roads 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 encompassing the microbiota of the gut, researchers are now trying dietary approaches to address osteoporosis. Nutritionally, a chondroitin sulfate/calcium complex enhanced the BMD and microstructure of the osteoporotic femur bone in a rat study. It also modified levels of the serum bone markers. This supplement intervention of chondroitin and calcium holds promise to potentially ease osteoporosis and its symptomatology. (3) New Roads Chiropractic Center 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.
