Nutrition of Spine and Disc

Nutrition is important to the body; nutrition directed at the discs and spine is important. 

Disc degeneration is a loss of chondroitin sulfate from the disc which results in a loss of water and shrinkage of the disc. (3) Its onset may be as early as adolescence. (42)

To help disc degeneration, you don’t want to take drugs, particularly ones that cause the problems you are taking them for!

Antidepressants (24), steroids (2, 9, 15, 8), NSAIDs (35, 16, 31, 34), salicylates (aspirin) (19, 6, 12)  are damaging to bone, disc and joints, leading to osteoarthritis, weakened bones, & a higher risk of fracture & degeneration.

You want to take nutrients like GLUCOSAMINE SULFATE and CHONDROITIN SULFATE…and vitamin B as low levels are linked with risk of degenerative diseases like cardiovascular (homocysteine, TCHY, protein metabolism), cognitive and osteoporosis! (Check out FORMULA ONE Multi Supplement.)

 

  • to build, protect, repair, and stabilize cartilage. (36, 21, 30, 7, 29)
  • to reduce inflammation. (25, 22, 7)
  • to reduce pain. (17, 30, 28, 32)
  • to reduce pain medication intake. (4, 5)
  • to improve mobility and spinal function. (4, 5, 37, 13, 38)
  • to prevent worsening of the degeneration. (29, 26, 1, 14, 23, 18)
  • to control of methylation, homocysteine levels, subacute degeneration of the spinal cord, and improve efficacy of low back pain treatment when B vitamins are included. (85,86)

 

You want to take DISCAT PLUS Enhanced.

It WORKS, often quite noticeably in just 2 to 8 weeks. But don’t stop taking it! Degeneration doesn’t stop progressing, does it? Not usually. Plus, disc degeneration is systemic (20), so if you have it in your low back, you probably have it in your neck, too.
