San Jose Chiropractic Nutrition: Gut, Bone, Chondroitin Sulfate

Osteoporosis and the gut. They may not seem be connected conditions beyond the fact that they both take place in the body. Osteoporosis’ effect is often seen in deteriorated bone. Gut issues’ effect is often seen in digestive problems. Researchers today are finding ties between gut health and osteoporosis’ effect on bone health. Chiropractic Solutions helps San Jose chiropractic patients suffering with both issues!

OSTEOPOROSIS AND THE GUT HEALTH CONNECTION

San Jose osteoporosis is very common. Gut issues are, too. Gut health change with probiotic use has grown to be more commonplace in recent years to address chronic diseases like autoimmune and cardiovascular diseases as well as diabetes and cancer. Today, 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 associated with a reduced bone mineral density (BMD) and modified microbiota. How these are associated in postmenopausal osteoporosis is not yet known. A study that attempted 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) Chiropractic Solutions sees these new discoveries involving gut health and osteoporosis as being helpful in planning the San Jose osteoporosis treatment plan.

DIETARY HELP FOR OSTEOPOROSIS

San Jose chiropractic care of osteoporosis is multifaceted including spinal manipulation via the gentle Cox® Technic protocols, exercise, and nutrition. Framing osteoporosis as a condition likely encompassing the microbiota of the gut, researchers are now trying dietary approaches to address osteoporosis. Nutritionally, a chondroitin sulfate/calcium complex enhanced the BMD and microstructure of the osteoporotic femur bone in a rat study. It also changed the serum bone turnover marker levels. This supplement intervention of chondroitin and calcium holds promise to potentially ease osteoporosis and its symptomatology. (3) Chiropractic Solutions is well versed in the effects of chondroitin sulfate for disc health and is eager to learn more about how it may also benefit osteoporosis.
