Paramus Chiropractic Nutrition: Gut, Bone, Chondroitin Sulfate

The gut and osteoporosis. Two seemingly unconnected conditions may actually be connected beyond the fact that they both are internal body issues. Osteoporosis’ effect is often seen in bone health deterioration. Gut issues’ effect is often seen in digestion problems. Researchers now are discovering links between gut health and osteoporosis’ effect on bone health. Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center helps Paramus chiropractic patients experiencing both issues!

OSTEOPOROSIS AND THE GUT HEALTH CONNECTION

Paramus osteoporosis is very common. Gut issues are, too. Gut health change with probiotic use has grown to be more mainstream recently to address 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 affects osteoporosis and osteopenia. (1) Senile osteoporosis is linked to a reduced bone mineral density (BMD) and altered microbiota. How these are associated in postmenopausal osteoporosis is not yet known. A study that tried to figure this out did discover that there was reduced bacterial richness and diversity in postmenopausal osteoporosis with significant contrast in levels of phyla and genera in gut microbiota. (2) Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center sees these new discoveries linking gut health and osteoporosis as being helpful in guiding Paramus osteoporosis treatment planning.

DIETARY HELP FOR OSTEOPOROSIS

Paramus 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 deal with osteoporosis. Nutritionally, a chondroitin sulfate/calcium complex improved the BMD and microstructure of femur bone in rats with osteoporosis. It also modified levels of the serum bone markers. This supplement intervention of chondroitin and calcium holds promise to potentially ease osteoporosis and related symptoms. (3) Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center 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.
