Baton Rouge 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 deteriorated bone. Gut issues’ effect is often seen in problems with digestion. Researchers now are discovering links between gut health and osteoporosis’ effect on bone health. Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation helps Baton Rouge chiropractic patients experiencing both issues!

OSTEOPOROSIS AND THE GUT HEALTH CONNECTION

Baton Rouge osteoporosis is quite prevalent. So are gut issues. Gut health change with probiotic use has grown to be more commonplace recently to help chronic diseases like autoimmune and cardiovascular diseases as well as cancer and diabetes. Today, researchers are looking at the health of the gut microbiome to deal with bone mass regulation which influences osteoporosis and osteopenia. (1) Senile osteoporosis is linked to a decreased bone mineral density (BMD) and modified microbiota. How these are associated in postmenopausal osteoporosis is not yet known. A study that attempted to figure this out did find that there was decreased bacterial richness and diversity in postmenopausal osteoporosis with significant contrast in levels of phyla and genera in gut microbiota. (2) Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation sees these new discoveries connecting gut health and osteoporosis as being helpful in planning the Baton Rouge osteoporosis treatment plan.

DIETARY HELP FOR OSTEOPOROSIS

Baton Rouge chiropractic care of osteoporosis is multifaceted incorporating spinal manipulation by way of the gentle Cox® Technic protocols, exercise, and nutrition. Framing osteoporosis as a condition likely involving the microbiota of the gut, researchers are now trying dietary approaches to address osteoporosis. Nutritionally, a chondroitin sulfate/calcium complex improved the BMD and microstructure of femur bone in rats with osteoporosis. It also changed levels of the serum bone markers. This supplement intervention of chondroitin and calcium has the potential to ease osteoporosis and related symptoms. (3) Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation 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.
