B vitamins. There are many B vitamins. Some are rising
stars in the Fort Wayne bone health and even Fort Wayne back
pain relief worlds. Aging, osteoporosis, back pain, and
related fractures are a handful of the causes. Aaron Chiropractic Clinic
presents recent research supporting the
testing of B vitamin levels and addressing any reduced
levels with diet and supplementation as applicable.
AGING, OSTEOPOROSIS, FRACTURE, VITAMIN B
We are 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 is quite an unpleasant cycle!
Preventing osteoporosis and improving 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 state
that support continues to expand
for the possible protective role of B vitamins particularly
B2, B6, folate (B9), and B12 for bone health. Research mentioned
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. Aaron Chiropractic Clinic will work
with you to discover what’s best for you and your
BONE, BMD, HIP FRACTURE, VITAMIN B
For a long time, Aaron Chiropractic Clinic has studied 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 reported that blood tests revealing low
serum levels of folate (vitamin B9) are signs of risk for reduced
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 reduced
the risk of hip fracture. These findings lead the researchers to
propose that checking folate and homocysteine blood levels in
elderly patients with osteopenia/osteoporosis is vital. They even
go so far as to write it is mandatory. (2) Vitamin B
is imperative for Fort Wayne 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. Aaron Chiropractic Clinic offers that these effects are beneficial
in managing back pain, musculoskeletal pain, and issues involving bone and spine health via nutrition.
