B vitamins. There are many B vitamins. A few are rising
stars in the Colorado Springs bone health and even Colorado Springs back
pain relief worlds. Aging, osteoporosis, back pain, and
related fractures are a handful of the causes. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR
shares recent research supporting the
testing of B vitamin levels and adjusting any low
levels with diet and supplementation as applicable.
AGING, OSTEOPOROSIS, FRACTURE, VITAMIN B
We’re aging. We’re 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’s quite a vicious circle!
Preventing osteoporosis and enhancing the health of bone is a reasonable
goal when considering aging. Dietary modification has been shown valuable as has the supplementation of B vitamins. Recent researchers state
that support continues to grow
for the possible protective role of B vitamins particularly
B2, B6, folate (B9), and B12 for bone health. Research suggested
that eating vitamin B enriched foods is one way to go to contain
any adverse effects of high-dose B vitamin supplementation. (1) It’s important to get the right mix of B
vitamins to do the best for bone health. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR will work
with you to find out what’s best for you and your
BONE, BMD, HIP FRACTURE, VITAMIN B
For a long time, The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR has studied the suggestions of Vitamin B for bone health, and the newest
review article of 29 studies supports testing and supplementation of B vitamins.
14 studies stated that blood tests revealing low
serum levels of folate (vitamin B9) are signs of risk for decreased
bone mineral density (BMD) and fractures in older people, especially
women. Taking folate vitamin B9
(500mcg-5mg a day) improved BMD in another study. Taking B6 decreased
the risk of hip fracture. These findings prompted 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 state it is mandatory. (2) Vitamin B
is valuable for Colorado Springs bone health!
ANTI-INFLAMMATORY BENEFIT OF VITAMIN B
B vitamins may well be a link in managing inflammatory
chemicals through homocysteine control, methylation, decreasing
CRP, etc. The roles of B vitamins – thiamine, pyridoxine, and cyanocobalamin –
in back pain and other musculoskeletal disorders lean toward being anti-inflammatory,
anti-nociceptive, neuroprotective, and neuromodulatory. (3) Big words. Big
concepts. Big deals. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR offers that these effects are beneficial
in managing back pain, musculoskeletal pain, and issues affecting bone and spine health via nutrition.
