Minster Chiropractic Nutrition: Gut, Bone, Chondroitin Sulfate

The gut and osteoporosis. They may not seem be connected conditions 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 today are discovering links between gut health and osteoporosis’ effect on bone health. Minster Chiropractic Center helps Minster chiropractic patients experiencing both issues!

OSTEOPOROSIS AND THE GUT HEALTH CONNECTION

Minster osteoporosis is quite prevalent. Gut issues are, too. Gut health modification via the use of probiotics has grown to be more commonplace in recent years to help chronic diseases like autoimmune and cardiovascular diseases as well as cancer and diabetes. Today, researchers are turning to the health of the gut microbiome to address bone mass regulation which influences osteoporosis and osteopenia. (1) Senile osteoporosis is linked to a decreased bone mineral density (BMD) and altered microbiota. How these are associated in postmenopausal osteoporosis is yet unknown. A study that tried to sort this out did discover that there was reduced bacterial richness and diversity in postmenopausal osteoporosis with significant difference in levels of phyla and genera in gut microbiota. (2) Minster Chiropractic Center finds these new discoveries linking gut health and osteoporosis useful in guiding Minster osteoporosis treatment planning.

DIETARY HELP FOR OSTEOPOROSIS

Minster chiropractic care of osteoporosis is multifaceted incorporating spinal manipulation via the gentle Cox® Technic protocols, exercise, and nutrition. Framing osteoporosis as a condition likely involving the microbiota of the gut, researchers are now using dietary approaches to deal with osteoporosis. Nutritionally, a chondroitin sulfate/calcium complex enhanced the BMD and microstructure of the osteoporotic femur bone in a rat study. It also modified levels of the serum bone markers. This dietary intervention of chondroitin and calcium has the potential to ease osteoporosis and related symptoms. (3) Minster Chiropractic Center is well versed in the effects of chondroitin sulfate for disc health and is eager to learn more about how it may also be beneficial for osteoporosis.
