Murfreesboro Chiropractic Nutrition: Gut, Bone, Chondroitin Sulfate

Osteoporosis and the gut. They may not seem be connected conditions 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 problems with digestion. Researchers now are finding ties between gut health and osteoporosis’ effect on bone health. Most Chiropractic Clinic helps Murfreesboro chiropractic patients suffering with both issues!

OSTEOPOROSIS AND THE GUT HEALTH CONNECTION

Murfreesboro osteoporosis is quite prevalent. So are gut issues. 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. Today, researchers are turning to the health of the gut microbiome to deal with bone mass regulation which affects osteoporosis and osteopenia. (1) Senile osteoporosis is linked to a reduced bone mineral density (BMD) and altered microbiota. How these are associated in postmenopausal osteoporosis is not yet known. A study that tried to figure this out did find that there was decreased bacterial richness and diversity in postmenopausal osteoporosis with significant contrast in levels of phyla and genera in gut microbiota. (2) Most Chiropractic Clinic finds these new discoveries linking gut health and osteoporosis useful in guiding Murfreesboro osteoporosis treatment planning.

DIETARY HELP FOR OSTEOPOROSIS

Murfreesboro chiropractic care of osteoporosis is multifaceted incorporating 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 using 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 has the potential to ease osteoporosis and related symptoms. (3) Most Chiropractic Clinic is very familiar with the effects of chondroitin sulfate for disc health and is excited that it may also be beneficial for osteoporosis.
