B vitamins. There are many B vitamins. A few are becoming
stars in the Oxford bone health and even Oxford back
pain relief worlds. Aging, osteoporosis, back pain, and
related fractures are a few of the reasons. Satterwhite Chiropractic
presents recent research supporting the
testing of B vitamin levels and adjusting any low
levels with diet and supplementation as appropriate.
AGING, OSTEOPOROSIS, FRACTURE, VITAMIN B
We are aging. We are not alone in it.
Globally, aging is growing. Along with aging comes the growth of osteoporotic
fracture incidence and morbidity, mortality, and cost related to such
fractures. It is quite an unpleasant cycle!
Preventing osteoporosis and enhancing the health of bone is a reasonable
goal when considering aging. Dietary modification has been shown good as has supplementing
with B vitamins. Recent researchers wrote
that support keeps enlarging
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 adverse effects of high-dose B vitamin supplementation. (1) It
is important to get the right blend of B
vitamins to do the best for bone health. Satterwhite Chiropractic will work
with you to find out what’s best for you and your
BONE, BMD, HIP FRACTURE, VITAMIN B
For a long time, Satterwhite Chiropractic has studied the suggestions of Vitamin B for bone health, and the newest
review article of 29 studies supports testing and supplementation of B vitamins.
14 studies reported that blood tests revealing low
serum levels of folate (vitamin B9) are indicators of risk for reduced
bone mineral density (BMD) and fractures in older people, especially
women. Taking folate vitamin B9
(500mcg-5mg a day) enhanced BMD in another study. Taking B6 reduced
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 vital. They even
went so far as to state it is mandatory. (2) Vitamin B
is important for Oxford bone health!
ANTI-INFLAMMATORY BENEFIT OF VITAMIN B
B vitamins may well be a link in controlling inflammatory
chemicals through homocysteine control, methylation, lowering
CRP, etc. The roles of B vitamins – thiamine, pyridoxine, and cyanocobalamin –
in back pain and other musculoskeletal disorders tend toward being anti-inflammatory,
anti-nociceptive, neuroprotective, and neuromodulatory. (3) Big words. Big
concepts. Big deals. Satterwhite Chiropractic offers that these effects are helpful
in dealing with back pain, musculoskeletal pain, and issues that
involve bone and spine health via nutrition.
