Pensacola 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 digestion problems. Researchers now are discovering ties between gut health and osteoporosis’ effect on bone health. Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center helps Pensacola chiropractic patients experiencing both issues!

OSTEOPOROSIS AND THE GUT HEALTH CONNECTION

Pensacola osteoporosis is very common. So are gut issues. Gut health modification via the use of probiotics has become more mainstream 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 linked to a reduced bone mineral density (BMD) and modified microbiota. How these are linked 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) Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center sees these new discoveries involving gut health and osteoporosis as being helpful in managing Pensacola osteoporosis treatment planning.

DIETARY HELP FOR OSTEOPOROSIS

Pensacola 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 involving the microbiota of the gut, researchers are now using dietary approaches to deal with osteoporosis. Nutritionally, a chondroitin sulfate/calcium complex enhanced the BMD and microstructure of femur bone in rats with osteoporosis. It also modified the serum bone turnover marker levels. This supplement intervention of chondroitin and calcium holds promise to potentially ease osteoporosis and related symptoms. (3) Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center is well versed in the effects of chondroitin sulfate for disc health and is excited that it may also benefit osteoporosis.
