The “osteo” conditions gain a lot of
attention at Wilson Family Chiropractic and in the research labs. “Chondroitin sulfate” gets
much attention for the positive effect it has on
osteoarthritis, so researchers are directing attention to
its application with the other “osteo”: osteoporosis. Chondroitin
sulfate is a non-prescription intervention that
is showing benefit in managing and making
better osteoporosis which we are sure our
Millville chiropractic patients with osteoporosis will appreciate. Gentle chiropractic care of osteoporosis can be relieving.
Osteoporosis is an age-related condition that affects
millions of people and a skeleton-weakening condition caused
by calcium deficiency often
resulting in painful bone fractures and decreased mobility.
Postmenopausal osteoporosis is the most usual form
of osteoporosis. A 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 regulate
lipid metabolism by breaking lipids down into smaller
particles can allow its cellular absorption to be
easier. This process permits cells to use
the lipids better, resulting in
stronger bones and muscles. Chondroitin sulfate also helps decrease
inflammation and pain associated with osteoporosis which may
help control 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, also. Chondroitin sulfate and
chondroitin sulfate oligosaccharide more effectively restored
femur calcium, bone fracture deflection, and serum indices and enhanced
cortical bone density, mechanical strength, and mineral content of bone. Their deductions
showed excitement for the potential of delaying
the progression of postmenopausal osteoporosis with daily consumption.
(1) This is good news for Millville osteoporosis
patients to insert into their calcium supplementation schedule.
CALCIUM FOR OSTEOPOROSIS – What about a combo?
Osteoporosis sufferers are advised to take 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 controlling osteoporosis caused by a deficinency of
study stated that the combined action of chondroitin sulfate and
calcium alleviated 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, stopped osteoclast differentiation, elevated
the absorption of calcium and antioxidant mechanism, and improved
osteoporosis. (2) Now that is an effective osteoporosis nutrition pair!
