The “osteo” conditions get much
attention at Most Chiropractic Clinic 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-drug intervention that
is showing positive advantage for managing and improving osteoporosis which we are sure our
Murfreesboro chiropractic patients with osteoporosis will value. Gentle chiropractic care of osteoporosis can be relieving.
Osteoporosis is an age-related condition that concerns
millions of people and a skeleton-weakening condition produced
by a deficiency of calcium many times
resulting in painful bone fractures and decreased mobility.
Postmenopausal osteoporosis is the most usual type
of osteoporosis. A way to fight osteoporosis is by
balancing calcium levels in the body; however, it can be difficult
to do alone. Fortunately, chondroitin sulfate has emerged
as a natural companion in this effort to help osteoporosis caused by 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 absorption by cells more easily. This process allows cells to utilizes
the lipids better, leading to
stronger bones and muscles. Chondroitin sulfate also helps reduce
inflammation and pain related to osteoporosis which may
help manage the effects of calcium deficiency-related
osteoporosis. In a newer rat study, researchers tested
chondroitin sulfate for osteoporosis and compared
it to a calcium supplement, too. Chondroitin sulfate and
chondroitin sulfate oligosaccharide more effectively repaired
femur calcium, bone fracture deflection, and serum indices and improved
cortical bone density, mechanical strength, and mineral content of bone. Their deductions
communicated excitement for the potential of delaying
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 found in the human body,
has been shown to be an effective solution for managing osteoporosis caused by a deficinency of
study reported 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,
reduced short chain fatty acid synthesis in intestinal
flora, halted osteoclast differentiation, elevated
the absorption of calcium and antioxidant mechanism, and eased
osteoporosis. (2) Now that is an effective osteoporosis nutrition pair!
