Auburn Chiropractic Nutrition: Gut, Bone, Chondroitin Sulfate

Osteoporosis and the gut. Two seemingly unconnected conditions may actually be connected beyond the fact that they both are internal body issues. Osteoporosis’ effect is often seen in deteriorated bone. Gut issues’ effect is often seen in digestive problems. Researchers now are discovering ties between gut health and osteoporosis’ effect on bone health. Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. helps Auburn chiropractic patients experiencing both issues!

OSTEOPOROSIS AND THE GUT HEALTH CONNECTION

Auburn osteoporosis is very common. So are gut issues. Gut health modification with probiotic use has become more mainstream in recent years to help chronic diseases like autoimmune and cardiovascular diseases as well as diabetes and cancer. Now, researchers are looking at the health of the gut microbiome to deal with bone mass regulation which affects osteoporosis and osteopenia. (1) Senile osteoporosis is linked to a decreased bone mineral density (BMD) and altered microbiota. How these are associated in postmenopausal osteoporosis is yet unknown. A study that attempted to sort this out did discover that there was decreased bacterial richness and diversity in postmenopausal osteoporosis with significant contrast in levels of phyla and genera in gut microbiota. (2) Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. sees these new discoveries connecting gut health and osteoporosis as being useful in guiding Auburn osteoporosis treatment planning.

DIETARY HELP FOR OSTEOPOROSIS

Auburn chiropractic care of osteoporosis is multifaceted including spinal manipulation by way of the gentle Cox® Technic protocols, exercise, and nutrition. Framing osteoporosis as a condition likely encompassing the microbiota of the gut, researchers are now using dietary approaches to address osteoporosis. Nutritionally, a chondroitin sulfate/calcium complex improved the BMD and microstructure of the osteoporotic femur bone in a rat study. It also modified the serum bone turnover marker levels. This dietary intervention of chondroitin and calcium holds promise to potentially ease osteoporosis and its symptomatology. (3) Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. 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.
