Sitka Menopausal Womens Bones Benefit from Probiotics

Chiropractors understand bones. No bones about it! Young bones and mature bones welcome the tender care delivered by attentive chiropractors like your Sitka chiropractor at Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka. The older bones - particularly menopausal bones - that ache because of osteoporosis especially enjoy the soothing care of your Sitka chiropractor. Prevention strategies like calcium and vitamin D supplementation and probiotic consumption are encouraged at Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka while pain-relieving Sitka chiropractic treatment is delivered.


Osteoporosis in menopausal women is not a sudden onset condition. Osteoporosis is the culmination of years of bone loss starting when women (and men) are young. It’s like a savings account. The deposits made into the bone health account as young people are effective when those young people grow old. If the bones are built up sufficiently in youth, they will endure aging better. If the bones didn’t get that built up, they’ll suffer - more for some than others – as they age. Supplementation and dietary intake of calcium, vitamin D and magnesium are frequently recommended for young women to help ward off menopausal osteoporosis. For more mature Sitka women, menopausal and post-menopausal, a mixture of those same nutrients are as well…plus a twist! Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka enjoys sharing these useful new, research-documented treatment twists to assist our Sitka osteoporosis patients.


Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka assists female Sitka osteoporosis patients make do with their condition from pain-relieving treatment with Cox Technic, a most gentle spinal manipulation your bones will so like, to usual nutritional supplements and new ones like probiotics. To potentially prevent and treat osteoporosis without the increased risk of cancer associated with hormone replacement therapy, a mix of probiotic and bioavailable isoflavone treatment was tested in the form of red clover extract. It worked well! A year of taking it twice a day showed a lessening for bone mineral density (BMD) loss, improvement of bone turnover, a better estrogen metabolite profile, and more equol production in post-menopausal women with osteopenia. Including calcium, magnesium, and calcitriol proved to be even more effective.  (1) Another article reports that just adding a multispecies probiotic supplement for 6 months showed positive effects on postmenopausal women’s bone health as it reduced the rate of bone turnover.
