B vitamins. There are many B vitamins. Some are becoming
stars in the Buffalo, NY bone health and even Buffalo, NY back
pain relief worlds. Aging, osteoporosis, back pain, and
related fractures are a few of the reasons. The Novelli Wellness Center
shares new 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’re 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 is quite an unpleasant cycle!
Preventing osteoporosis and enhancing the health of bone is a fair
goal when considering aging. Dietary modification has been shown valuable as has supplementing
with B vitamins. Recent researchers wrote
that support keeps expanding
for the possible protective role of B vitamins especially
B2, B6, folate (B9), and B12 for bone health. Research suggested
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 combination of B
vitamins to be optimal for bone health. The Novelli Wellness Center will work
with you to discover what is best for you and your
BONE, BMD, HIP FRACTURE, VITAMIN B
For years, The Novelli Wellness Center has read
about 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) improved BMD in another study. Taking B6 reduced
the risk of hip fracture. These findings lead the researchers to
propose that checking folate and homocysteine blood levels in
elderly patients with osteopenia/osteoporosis is vital. They even
go so far as to say it is mandatory. (2) Vitamin B
is important for Buffalo, NY 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 tend toward being anti-inflammatory,
anti-nociceptive, neuroprotective, and neuromodulatory. (3) Big words. Big
concepts. Big deals. The Novelli Wellness Center offers that these effects are helpful
in dealing with back pain, musculoskeletal pain, and issues involving bone and spine health via nutrition.
