Malverne Back Pain Care and Bone Health Supported by B vitamins

B vitamins. There are many B vitamins. Some are becoming stars in the Malverne bone health and even Malverne back pain relief spheres. Aging, osteoporosis, back pain, and related fractures are a handful of the causes. Malverne Health & Wellness shares new research behind the testing of B vitamin levels and adjusting any reduced 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 those fractures. It’s quite a vicious circle! Preventing osteoporosis and improving 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 state 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 option to contain any adverse 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. Malverne Health & Wellness will collaborate with you to discover what’s best for you and your bones.

BONE, BMD, HIP FRACTURE, VITAMIN B

For years, Malverne Health & Wellness 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 signs 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 prompted 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 state it is mandatory. (2) Vitamin B is valuable for Malverne 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 lean toward being anti-inflammatory, anti-nociceptive, neuroprotective, and neuromodulatory. (3) Big words. Big concepts. Big deals. Malverne Health & Wellness offers that these effects are helpful in dealing with back pain, musculoskeletal pain, and issues affecting bone and spine health via nutrition.
