B vitamins. There are many B vitamins. A few are becoming
stars in the Auburn bone health and even Auburn back
pain relief spheres. Aging, osteoporosis, back pain, and
related fractures are a handful of the reasons. Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C.
presents recent research behind the
testing of B vitamin levels and adjusting any reduced
levels with diet and supplementation as applicable.
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’s quite a vicious cycle!
Preventing osteoporosis and improving the health of bone is a fair
goal when considering aging. Dietary modification has been shown effective as has the supplementation of B vitamins. Recent researchers wrote
that support keeps growing
for the possible protective role of B vitamins particularly
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’s important to get the right combination of B
vitamins to do the best for bone health. Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. will work
with you to discover what is best for you and your
BONE, BMD, HIP FRACTURE, VITAMIN B
For a long time, Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. 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 showing low
serum levels of folate (vitamin B9) are indicators of risk for reduced
bone mineral density (BMD) and fractures in older people, particularly
women. Taking folate vitamin B9
(500mcg-5mg a day) improved BMD in another study. Taking B6 decreased
the risk of hip fracture. These findings prompted the researchers to
suggest that checking folate and homocysteine blood levels in
elderly patients with osteopenia/osteoporosis is crucial. They even
go so far as to write it is mandatory. (2) Vitamin B
is imperative for Auburn bone health!
ANTI-INFLAMMATORY BENEFIT OF VITAMIN B
B vitamins may well be a link in managing 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 lean toward being anti-inflammatory,
anti-nociceptive, neuroprotective, and neuromodulatory. (3) Big words. Big
concepts. Big deals. Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. offers that these effects are helpful
in managing back pain, musculoskeletal pain, and issues that
involve bone and spine health via nutrition.
