Ashburn 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 deteriorated bone. Gut issues’ effect is often seen in digestive problems. Researchers now are finding links between gut health and osteoporosis’ effect on bone health. Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn helps Ashburn chiropractic patients suffering with both issues!

OSTEOPOROSIS AND THE GUT HEALTH CONNECTION

Ashburn osteoporosis is very common. So are gut issues. Gut health change with probiotic use has become more mainstream recently to address 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 influences osteoporosis and osteopenia. (1) Senile osteoporosis is associated with a reduced bone mineral density (BMD) and modified microbiota. How these are linked in postmenopausal osteoporosis is yet unknown. A study that attempted to figure this out did discover that there was reduced bacterial richness and diversity in postmenopausal osteoporosis with significant difference in levels of phyla and genera in gut microbiota. (2) Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn sees these new discoveries linking gut health and osteoporosis as being helpful in managing Ashburn osteoporosis treatment planning.

DIETARY HELP FOR OSTEOPOROSIS

Looking at 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 enhanced the BMD and microstructure of the osteoporotic femur bone in a rat study. It also changed levels of the serum bone markers. This supplement intervention of chondroitin and calcium holds promise to potentially ease osteoporosis and related symptoms. (3) Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn 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.
