B vitamins. There are many B vitamins. Some are rising
stars in the Manahawkin bone health and even Manahawkin back
pain relief areas. Aging, osteoporosis, back pain, and
related fractures are a few of the reasons. Manahawkin Chiropractic Center
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 are aging. We are 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 is quite an unpleasant cycle!
Preventing osteoporosis and enhancing the health of bone is a fair
goal when considering aging. Dietary modification has been shown valuable as has the supplementation of B vitamins. Recent researchers wrote
that support continues to enlarge
for the possible protective role of B vitamins especially
B2, B6, folate (B9), and B12 for bone health. Research suggested
that eating vitamin B enriched foods is one option to contain
any adverse effects of high-dose B vitamin supplementation. (1) It’s important to get the right mix of B
vitamins to be optimal for bone health. Manahawkin Chiropractic Center will work
with you to discover what is best for you and your
BONE, BMD, HIP FRACTURE, VITAMIN B
For years, Manahawkin Chiropractic Center has read
about the suggestions of Vitamin B for bone health, and the latest
review article of 29 studies supports testing and supplementation of B vitamins.
14 studies stated that blood tests showing low
serum levels of folate (vitamin B9) are signs of risk for decreased
bone mineral density (BMD) and fractures in older people, particularly
women. Taking folate vitamin B9
(500mcg-5mg a day) enhanced BMD in another study. Taking B6 reduced
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 vital. They even
go so far as to state it is mandatory. (2) Vitamin B
is valuable for Manahawkin bone health!
ANTI-INFLAMMATORY BENEFIT OF VITAMIN B
B vitamins may well be a link in controlling inflammatory
chemicals through homocysteine control, methylation, lowering
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. Manahawkin Chiropractic Center offers that these effects are beneficial
in managing back pain, musculoskeletal pain, and issues that
involve bone and spine health via nutrition.
