The “osteo” conditions gain much
attention at Chiropractic Care and in the research labs. “Chondroitin sulfate” receives
a lot of attention for the benefit it has on
osteoarthritis, so researchers are turning attention to
its use with the other “osteo”: osteoporosis. Chondroitin
sulfate is a non-prescription intervention that
is showing positive advantage in managing and improving osteoporosis which we know our
West Palm Beach chiropractic patients with osteoporosis will appreciate. Gentle chiropractic care of osteoporosis can be relieving.
Osteoporosis is an age-related condition that concerns
millions of people and a skeleton-deteriorating condition produced
by calcium deficiency many times
resulting in painful bone fractures and reduced mobility.
Postmenopausal osteoporosis is the most usual form
of osteoporosis. One way to attack osteoporosis is by
balancing calcium levels in the body; however, it can be hard
to do alone. Fortunately, chondroitin sulfate has appeared
as a natural companion in this attempts to help osteoporosis related
to calcium deficiency.
CHONDROITIN SULFATE FOR OSTEOPOROSIS – A good
Chondroitin sulfate’s ability to regulate
lipid metabolism by breaking lipids down into smaller
particles can allow its cellular absorption more easily. This process permits cells to use
the lipids more efficiently, leading to
stronger bones and muscles. Chondroitin sulfate also helps reduce
inflammation and pain related to osteoporosis which may
help handle the effects of calcium deficiency-related
osteoporosis. In a newer rat study, researchers examined
chondroitin sulfate for osteoporosis and weighed its effectiveness against a calcium supplement, also. Chondroitin sulfate and
chondroitin sulfate oligosaccharide more effectively repaired
femur calcium, bone fracture deflection, and serum indices and enhanced
cortical bone density, mechanical strength, and mineral content of bone. Their conclusions
showed excitement for the potential of postponing
the progression of postmenopausal osteoporosis with daily use.

patients to insert into their calcium supplementation routine.
CALCIUM FOR OSTEOPOROSIS – What about a combo?
Osteoporosis sufferers are recommended calcium
all the time. Many of us are calcium
deficient. Both being non-drug interventions, calcium and chondroitin
sulfate may enhance each other’s effects.
Chondroitin sulfate, a natural compound existing in the human body,
has been shown to be an effective solution for managing osteoporosis triggered by calcium deficiency. Another
study stated that the combined action of chondroitin sulfate and
calcium alleviated osteoporosis via gut microbiota and
metabolomics in low calcium rats. Chondroitin sulfate reduced the inflammatory response,
reduced short chain fatty acid synthesis in intestinal
flora, stopped osteoclast differentiation, elevated
the absorption of calcium and antioxidant mechanism, and improved
osteoporosis. (2) Now that is an effective osteoporosis nutrition combination!
