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
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.
