Manahawkin Chiropractic Nutrition: Gut, Bone, Chondroitin Sulfate

The gut and osteoporosis. They may not seem be connected conditions beyond the fact that they both take place in the body. Osteoporosis’ effect is often seen in bone health deterioration. Gut issues’ effect is often seen in problems with digestion. Researchers today are finding ties between gut health and osteoporosis’ effect on bone health. Manahawkin Chiropractic Center helps Manahawkin chiropractic patients suffering with both issues!

OSTEOPOROSIS AND THE GUT HEALTH CONNECTION

Manahawkin osteoporosis is very common. Gut issues are, too. Gut health change with probiotic use has become more commonplace recently to help 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 address bone mass regulation which affects osteoporosis and osteopenia. (1) Senile osteoporosis is associated with 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) Manahawkin Chiropractic Center sees these new discoveries linking gut health and osteoporosis as being helpful in managing Manahawkin osteoporosis treatment planning.

DIETARY HELP FOR OSTEOPOROSIS

Manahawkin chiropractic care of osteoporosis is complex including spinal manipulation via 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 enhanced the BMD and microstructure of femur bone in rats with osteoporosis. It also changed the serum bone turnover marker levels. This dietary intervention of chondroitin and calcium has the potential to ease osteoporosis and its symptomatology. (3) Manahawkin Chiropractic Center is well versed in the effects of chondroitin sulfate for disc health and is excited that it may also be beneficial for osteoporosis.
