B vitamins. There are many B vitamins. A few are becoming
stars in the Toronto bone health and even Toronto back
pain relief worlds. Aging, osteoporosis, back pain, and
related fractures are a handful of the reasons. Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre
presents recent research behind the
testing of B vitamin levels and addressing any reduced
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 such
fractures. It’s quite a vicious circle!
Preventing osteoporosis and enhancing the health of bone is a reasonable
goal when considering aging. Dietary modification has been shown valuable as has the supplementation of B vitamins. Recent researchers state
that support keeps growing
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 blend of B
vitamins to do the best for bone health. Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre will collaborate
with you to find out what’s best for you and your
BONE, BMD, HIP FRACTURE, VITAMIN B
For a long time, Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre 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 reported that blood tests showing low
serum levels of folate (vitamin B9) are indicators of risk for decreased
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 lead the researchers to
suggest that checking folate and homocysteine blood levels in
elderly patients with osteopenia/osteoporosis is crucial. They even
go so far as to say it is mandatory. (2) Vitamin B
is imperative for Toronto 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 lean toward being anti-inflammatory,
anti-nociceptive, neuroprotective, and neuromodulatory. (3) Big words. Big
concepts. Big deals. Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre offers that these effects are helpful
in managing back pain, musculoskeletal pain, and issues that
involve bone and spine health via nutrition.
