B vitamins. There are many B vitamins. A few are rising
stars in the San Jose bone health and even San Jose back
pain relief spheres. Aging, osteoporosis, back pain, and
related fractures are a handful of the causes. Chiropractic Solutions
shares recent research supporting the
testing of B vitamin levels and adjusting any low
levels with diet and supplementation as applicable.
AGING, OSTEOPOROSIS, FRACTURE, VITAMIN B
We are aging. We are 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 good as has supplementing
with B vitamins. Recent researchers state
that support continues to enlarge
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 unwanted effects of high-dose B vitamin supplementation. (1) It
is important to get the right blend of B
vitamins to do the best for bone health. Chiropractic Solutions will collaborate
with you to find out what is best for you and your
BONE, BMD, HIP FRACTURE, VITAMIN B
For a long time, Chiropractic Solutions has read
about 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 showing low
serum levels of folate (vitamin B9) are indicators of risk for decreased
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 prompted the researchers to
propose that checking folate and homocysteine blood levels in
elderly patients with osteopenia/osteoporosis is crucial. They even
go so far as to state it is mandatory. (2) Vitamin B
is valuable for San Jose 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 tend toward being anti-inflammatory,
anti-nociceptive, neuroprotective, and neuromodulatory. (3) Big words. Big
concepts. Big deals. Chiropractic Solutions offers that these effects are beneficial
in dealing with back pain, musculoskeletal pain, and issues affecting bone and spine health via nutrition.
