B vitamins. There are many B vitamins. Some are becoming
stars in the Largo bone health and even Largo back
pain relief worlds. Aging, osteoporosis, back pain, and
related fractures are a handful of the causes. Hollstrom & Associates Inc
shares recent research behind the
testing of B vitamin levels and adjusting any low
levels with diet and supplementation as applicable.
AGING, OSTEOPOROSIS, FRACTURE, VITAMIN B
We are aging. We are not alone in it.
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 fair
goal when considering aging. Dietary modification has been shown effective as has supplementing
with B vitamins. Recent researchers wrote
that support continues to expand
for the possible protective role of B vitamins particularly
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 adverse effects of high-dose B vitamin supplementation. (1) It
is important to get the right mix of B
vitamins to do the best for bone health. Hollstrom & Associates Inc will work
with you to find out what’s best for you and your
BONE, BMD, HIP FRACTURE, VITAMIN B
For a long time, Hollstrom & Associates Inc has studied 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 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 vital. They even
go so far as to write it is mandatory. (2) Vitamin B
is imperative for Largo bone health!
ANTI-INFLAMMATORY BENEFIT OF VITAMIN B
B vitamins may well be a link in managing 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 tend toward being anti-inflammatory,
anti-nociceptive, neuroprotective, and neuromodulatory. (3) Big words. Big
concepts. Big deals. Hollstrom & Associates Inc offers that these effects are beneficial
in dealing with back pain, musculoskeletal pain, and issues affecting bone and spine health via nutrition.
