Buffalo, NY Back Pain Care and Bone Health Supported by B vitamins

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 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’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 the supplementation of B vitamins. Recent researchers wrote that support continues to expand 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 is 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 bones.

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.

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.
