A few are rising stars in the Fort Wayne bone health and even Fort Wayne back pain relief areas. Aging, osteoporosis, back pain, and related fractures are a few of the causes. Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc presents recent research behind the testing of B vitamin levels and adjusting any low levels with diet and supplementation as appropriate. AGING, OSTEOPOROSIS, FRACTURE, VITAMIN B We’re aging. We are 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 those fractures. It’s quite a vicious cycle! Preventing osteoporosis and improving the health of bone is a reasonable goal when considering aging. Dietary modification has been shown effective as has the supplementation of B vitamins. Recent researchers state that support keeps expanding for the possible protective role of B vitamins especially 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 mix of B vitamins to do the best for bone health. Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc will collaborate with you to find out what is best for you and your bones. BONE, BMD, HIP FRACTURE, VITAMIN B For years, Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc 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 signs 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 reduced the risk of hip fracture. These findings prompted the researchers to propose that checking folate and homocysteine blood levels in elderly patients with osteopenia/osteoporosis is crucial. They even went so far as to say it is mandatory. (2) Vitamin B is valuable for Fort Wayne 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.
