The “osteo” conditions get much
attention at Chiropractic Solutions and in the research labs. “Chondroitin sulfate” receives
much 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-pharmaceutical intervention demonstrating positive advantage for managing and making
better osteoporosis which we are sure our
San Jose 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 decreased mobility.
Postmenopausal osteoporosis is the most common kind
of osteoporosis. A way to attack osteoporosis is by
balancing calcium levels in the body; however, it can be difficult
to do alone. Luckily, chondroitin sulfate has emerged
as a natural companion in this effort 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 littler
particles can allow its absorption by cells to be
easier. This process allows cells to use
the lipids better, resulting in
stronger bones and muscles. Chondroitin sulfate also helps lessen
inflammation and pain related to osteoporosis which may
help handle the effects of calcium deficiency-related
osteoporosis. In a recent 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 restored
femur calcium, bone fracture deflection, and serum indices and improved
cortical bone density, mechanical strength, and mineral content of bone. Their conclusions
showed excitement for the potential of delaying
the development of postmenopausal osteoporosis with daily consumption.

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 complement each other’s effects.
Chondroitin sulfate, a natural compound existing in the human body,
has been shown to be an effective solution for dealing
with osteoporosis triggered by calcium deficiency. Another
study stated that the combined action of chondroitin sulfate and
calcium was good for osteoporosis via gut microbiota and
metabolomics in low calcium rats. Chondroitin sulfate slowed down the inflammatory response,
decreased short chain fatty acid synthesis in intestinal
flora, halted osteoclast differentiation, promoted
the absorption of calcium and antioxidant mechanism, and improved
osteoporosis. (2) Now that is an effective osteoporosis nutrition combination!
