Williamson Chiropractic Nutrition: Gut, Bone, Chondroitin Sulfate

Osteoporosis and the gut. Two seemingly unconnected conditions may actually be connected beyond the fact that they both are internal body issues. Osteoporosis’ effect is often seen in bone health deterioration. Gut issues’ effect is often seen in problems with digestion. Researchers today are discovering links between gut health and osteoporosis’ effect on bone health. Apple Country Chiropractic helps Williamson chiropractic patients suffering with both issues!

OSTEOPOROSIS AND THE GUT HEALTH CONNECTION

Williamson osteoporosis is very common. So are gut issues. Gut health modification via the use of probiotics has grown to be more mainstream in recent years to help chronic diseases like autoimmune and cardiovascular diseases as well as cancer and diabetes. Now, researchers are turning to the health of the gut microbiome to deal with bone mass regulation which affects osteoporosis and osteopenia. (1) Senile osteoporosis is linked to a reduced bone mineral density (BMD) and altered microbiota. How these are linked in postmenopausal osteoporosis is not yet known. A study that attempted to figure this out did discover that there was reduced bacterial richness and diversity in postmenopausal osteoporosis with significant contrast in levels of phyla and genera in gut microbiota. (2) Apple Country Chiropractic sees these new discoveries linking gut health and osteoporosis as being useful in planning the Williamson osteoporosis treatment plan.

DIETARY HELP FOR OSTEOPOROSIS

Williamson chiropractic care of osteoporosis is multifaceted incorporating spinal manipulation by way of the gentle Cox® Technic protocols, exercise, and nutrition. Looking at osteoporosis as a condition likely involving 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 supplement intervention of chondroitin and calcium holds promise to potentially ease osteoporosis and its symptomatology. (3) Apple Country Chiropractic is well versed in the effects of chondroitin sulfate for disc health and is excited that it may also benefit osteoporosis.
