B vitamins. There are many B vitamins. Some are becoming
stars in the Carrolltown bone health and even Carrolltown back
pain relief worlds. Aging, osteoporosis, back pain, and
related fractures are a few of the reasons. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation
shares new research behind the
testing of B vitamin levels and addressing any low
levels with diet and supplementation as appropriate.
AGING, OSTEOPOROSIS, FRACTURE, VITAMIN B
We’re aging. We’re not alone in this.
Globally, aging is growing. Along with aging comes the growth of osteoporotic
fracture incidence and morbidity, mortality, and cost related to such
fractures. It’s quite a vicious cycle!
Preventing osteoporosis and improving the health of bone is a reasonable
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
is important to get the right combination of B
vitamins to do the best for bone health. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation will collaborate
with you to find out what’s best for you and your
BONE, BMD, HIP FRACTURE, VITAMIN B
For a long time, Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation has read
about the suggestions of Vitamin B for bone health, and the newest
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 indicators 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 state it is mandatory. (2) Vitamin B
is imperative for Carrolltown 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 lean toward being anti-inflammatory,
anti-nociceptive, neuroprotective, and neuromodulatory. (3) Big words. Big
concepts. Big deals. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation offers that these effects are beneficial
in dealing with back pain, musculoskeletal pain, and issues that
involve bone and spine health via nutrition.
