B vitamins. There are many B vitamins. A few are rising
stars in the West Palm Beach bone health and even West Palm Beach back
pain relief spheres. Aging, osteoporosis, back pain, and
related fractures are a few of the reasons. Chiropractic Care
presents new research supporting the
testing of B vitamin levels and adjusting any low
levels with diet and supplementation as appropriate.
AGING, OSTEOPOROSIS, FRACTURE, VITAMIN B
We are 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 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 wrote
that support continues to expand
for the possible protective role of B vitamins especially
B2, B6, folate (B9), and B12 for bone health. Research mentioned
that eating vitamin B enriched foods is one way to go to contain
any adverse effects of high-dose B vitamin supplementation. (1) It’s important to get the right blend of B
vitamins to be optimal for bone health. Chiropractic Care will collaborate
with you to find out what’s best for you and your
BONE, BMD, HIP FRACTURE, VITAMIN B
For years, Chiropractic Care 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 stated that blood tests revealing low
serum levels of folate (vitamin B9) are signs of risk for reduced
bone mineral density (BMD) and fractures in older people, particularly
women. Taking folate vitamin B9
(500mcg-5mg a day) enhanced BMD in another study. Taking B6 reduced
the risk of hip fracture. These findings prompted 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 important for West Palm Beach bone health!
ANTI-INFLAMMATORY BENEFIT OF VITAMIN B
B vitamins may well be a link in controlling inflammatory
chemicals through homocysteine control, methylation, lowering
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. Chiropractic Care offers that these effects are helpful
in dealing with back pain, musculoskeletal pain, and issues that
involve bone and spine health via nutrition.
