Colorado Springs 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 today are finding ties between gut health and osteoporosis’ effect on bone health. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR helps Colorado Springs chiropractic patients suffering with both issues!

OSTEOPOROSIS AND THE GUT HEALTH CONNECTION

Colorado Springs osteoporosis is very common. Gut issues are, too. Gut health change via the use of probiotics has grown to be more mainstream 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 decreased bone mineral density (BMD) and altered microbiota. How these are linked in postmenopausal osteoporosis is yet unknown. A study that tried to sort this out did find that there was decreased bacterial richness and diversity in postmenopausal osteoporosis with significant difference in levels of phyla and genera in gut microbiota. (2) The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR sees these new discoveries linking gut health and osteoporosis as being helpful in guiding Colorado Springs osteoporosis treatment planning.

DIETARY HELP FOR OSTEOPOROSIS

Colorado Springs 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 involving the microbiota of the gut, researchers are now trying dietary approaches to deal with 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 dietary intervention of chondroitin and calcium holds promise to potentially ease osteoporosis and its symptomatology. (3) The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR is well versed in the effects of chondroitin sulfate for disc health and is excited that it may also be beneficial for osteoporosis.
