Groton Chiropractic Nutrition: Gut, Bone, Chondroitin Sulfate

The gut and osteoporosis. Two seemingly unconnected conditions may actually be connected 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 now are discovering ties between gut health and osteoporosis’ effect on bone health. Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office helps Groton chiropractic patients experiencing both issues!

OSTEOPOROSIS AND THE GUT HEALTH CONNECTION

Groton osteoporosis is quite prevalent. So are gut issues. Gut health modification with probiotic use has grown to be more mainstream recently to address chronic diseases like autoimmune and cardiovascular diseases as well as diabetes and cancer. Today, researchers are turning to the health of the gut microbiome to deal with bone mass regulation which influences osteoporosis and osteopenia. (1) Senile osteoporosis is associated with a decreased bone mineral density (BMD) and modified microbiota. How these are associated in postmenopausal osteoporosis is yet unknown. A study that tried to figure this out did discover that there was reduced bacterial richness and diversity in postmenopausal osteoporosis with significant disparity in levels of phyla and genera in gut microbiota. (2) Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office sees these new discoveries involving gut health and osteoporosis as being helpful in guiding Groton osteoporosis treatment planning.

DIETARY HELP FOR OSTEOPOROSIS

Groton chiropractic care of osteoporosis is multifaceted including spinal manipulation by way of 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 address osteoporosis. Nutritionally, a chondroitin sulfate/calcium complex improved the BMD and microstructure of the osteoporotic femur bone in a rat study. It also changed levels of the serum bone markers. This dietary intervention of chondroitin and calcium has the potential to ease osteoporosis and its symptomatology. (3) Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office is well versed in the effects of chondroitin sulfate for disc health and is enthused it may also be beneficial for osteoporosis.
