The “osteo” conditions get a lot of
attention at Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation and in the research labs. “Chondroitin sulfate” gets
a lot of attention for the benefit it has on
osteoarthritis, so researchers are focusing attention to
its application with the other “osteo”: osteoporosis. Chondroitin
sulfate is a non-prescription intervention that
is showing benefit for managing and improving osteoporosis which we know our
Carrolltown chiropractic patients with osteoporosis will welcome. Gentle chiropractic care of osteoporosis can be relieving.
Osteoporosis is an age-related condition that concerns
millions of people and a skeleton-weakening condition triggered
by calcium deficiency many times
resulting in painful bone fractures and reduced mobility.
Postmenopausal osteoporosis is the most common kind
of osteoporosis. One way to fight osteoporosis is by
balancing calcium levels in the body; however, it can be hard
to do alone. Fortunately, chondroitin sulfate has surfaced
as a natural companion in this effort to help osteoporosis caused by calcium deficiency.
CHONDROITIN SULFATE FOR OSTEOPOROSIS – A suitable
Chondroitin sulfate’s ability to adjust
lipid metabolism by breaking lipids down into smaller
particles can allow its absorption by cells to be
easier. This process allows cells to utilizes
the lipids more efficiently, resulting in
stronger bones and muscles. Chondroitin sulfate also helps reduce
inflammation and pain associated with osteoporosis which may
help manage 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, 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 conclusions
showed excitement for the potential of postponing
the development of postmenopausal osteoporosis with daily consumption.

patients to insert into their calcium supplementation routine.
CALCIUM FOR OSTEOPOROSIS – What about a combo?
Calcium is recommended for osteoporosis all
the time. Many of us lack sufficient calcium levels. Both being non-drug interventions, calcium and chondroitin
sulfate may complement each other’s efforts.
Chondroitin sulfate, a natural compound existing in the human body,
has been shown to be an effective solution for controlling osteoporosis triggered by a deficinency of
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 reduced the inflammatory response,
reduced short chain fatty acid synthesis in intestinal
flora, halted osteoclast differentiation, elevated
the absorption of calcium and antioxidant mechanism, and improved
osteoporosis. (2) Now that is an effective osteoporosis nutrition combination!
