Healthy Gut, Healthy Bones

Healthy Gut, Healthy Bones

Over the years we’ve focused a great deal on the power of Healthy Bones Co. Collagen Peptides to help support your bone and joint health.

Recently, the scientific community has become interested in the role that a healthy gut microbiome plays in keeping your bones strong.

What does your gut have to do with bone density? Everything.

More than 39.9% of Americans experience at least one digestive disorder (1).

…and, according to a Rome Foundation Global Study, women are disproportionately affected.

Just dealing with constant and embarrassing gas alone is reason to want to hide away from the world!

But add bloating,

acid that erupts in your throat after (it seems) every meal,

irregular and unpredictable bowel habits,

and stomach cramps,

and your quality of life and happiness slowly degrades.

I’ve heard from several customers that not only had their freedom of movement improved with Collagen Peptides, but many of their gut issues had calmed down.

This was great news! But I was not surprised. Here’s why.

Targeting the gut to promote bone health

Recently, the gut has been shown to play an important role in regulating bone mass. In fact, a new interdisciplinary field bridging the study of gut microbiome and bone biology, known as osteomicrobiology has emerged.

You and I are at the forefront of this new field of study, because it is felt that targeting and nourishing the gut may be a potential alternative avenue for those suffering with weakening bones (2).

Your intestinal epithelium

The epithelium is a type of body tissue that forms the covering on all internal and external surfaces of your body.

All substances that enter or leave an organ must cross the epithelial tissue first, and that means it is the most critical physical and physiological frontline barrier.

While at the same time transporting and absorbing dietary substances for your body’s needs, it is not only a selective barrier that protects against pathogen invasion, it is also a major site for nutrient absorption and metabolism. It also participates in your immune system functioning (3).

Intestinal assassins escape through failing tight junctions

Tight junctions form the continuous intercellular barrier between epithelial cells, and have the important role of allowing appropriate nutrients to pass or identifying and blocking the passage of toxins.

Factors such as stress, an unhealthy diet, excessive alcohol, antibiotics, and drug consumption can compromise the strength of tight junctions. When tight junctions begin to fail, toxins and pathogens may sneak through, causing bloat, bowel discomfort, gas, and irritation.

This is called “leaky gut”

The tight junctions of a leaky gut are weakened, ultimately allowing the entry of harmful agents, which pass into the bloodstream and affect various organs and systems (4).

Before you know it, your gut is on fire. This fire can spread to, and affect, other organs and processes in your body. Including, we now know, your bones.

Collagen peptides may help calm leaky gut and fortify tight junctions

A 2-phase, mixed methods digital study was conducted to determine whether collagen peptides could be potentially used as a solution in the management of digestive issues in healthy female adults (5).

The hypothesis was that an 8-week supplementation with bovine-based collagen peptides would reduce digestive symptoms in healthy female adults.

93% experienced a reduction in digestive symptoms, including bloating

The use of a 20 gram daily collagen peptide supplement helped reduce bloating and improve mild digestive symptoms in otherwise healthy female adults in the absence of any other dietary or lifestyle interventions.

We’re on top of the emerging science

More evidence is needed to bolster the association between bone loss and intestinal barrier weakness, and we’ll continue to monitor clinical studies and emerging scientific research.

But, you don’t have to wait to benefit!
