Montreal 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 today are finding ties between gut health and osteoporosis’ effect on bone health. Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic helps Montreal chiropractic patients suffering with both issues!

OSTEOPOROSIS AND THE GUT HEALTH CONNECTION

Montreal osteoporosis is quite prevalent. So are gut issues. Gut health change with probiotic use has grown to be more commonplace recently to address chronic diseases like autoimmune and cardiovascular diseases as well as cancer and diabetes. Today, researchers are turning to the health of the gut microbiome to address 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 not yet known. A study that attempted to sort 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) Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic sees these new discoveries involving gut health and osteoporosis as being useful in managing Montreal osteoporosis treatment planning.

DIETARY HELP FOR OSTEOPOROSIS

Montreal chiropractic care of osteoporosis is complex incorporating spinal manipulation by way of the gentle Cox® Technic protocols, exercise, and nutrition. Framing osteoporosis as a condition likely involving the microbiota of the gut, researchers are now using dietary approaches to address osteoporosis. Nutritionally, a chondroitin sulfate/calcium complex enhanced the BMD and microstructure of the osteoporotic femur bone in a rat study. It also modified levels of the serum bone markers. This dietary intervention of chondroitin and calcium holds promise to potentially ease osteoporosis and its symptomatology. (3) Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic 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.
