B vitamins. There are many B vitamins. Some are becoming
stars in the Groton bone health and even Groton back
pain relief areas. Aging, osteoporosis, back pain, and
related fractures are a few of the reasons. Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office
presents new research behind the
testing of B vitamin levels and adjusting any reduced
levels with diet and supplementation as appropriate.
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 those
fractures. It is quite an unpleasant circle!
Preventing osteoporosis and improving the health of bone is a reasonable
goal when considering aging. Dietary modification has been shown valuable as has supplementing
with B vitamins. Recent researchers state
that support keeps growing
for the possible protective role of B vitamins particularly
B2, B6, folate (B9), and B12 for bone health. Research suggested
that eating vitamin B enriched foods is one way to go to contain
any unwanted effects of high-dose B vitamin supplementation. (1) It’s important to get the right combination of B
vitamins to do the best for bone health. Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office will collaborate
with you to discover what is best for you and your
BONE, BMD, HIP FRACTURE, VITAMIN B
For a long time, Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office 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 showing low
serum levels of folate (vitamin B9) are indicators of risk for reduced
bone mineral density (BMD) and fractures in older people, particularly
women. Taking folate vitamin B9
(500mcg-5mg a day) improved 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 write it is mandatory. (2) Vitamin B
is important for Groton bone health!
ANTI-INFLAMMATORY BENEFIT OF VITAMIN B
B vitamins may well be a link in controlling 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 tend toward being anti-inflammatory,
anti-nociceptive, neuroprotective, and neuromodulatory. (3) Big words. Big
concepts. Big deals. Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office offers that these effects are helpful
in dealing with back pain, musculoskeletal pain, and issues affecting bone and spine health via nutrition.
