The “osteo” conditions gain much
attention at Spinal Care Clinic and in the research labs. “Chondroitin sulfate” receives
a lot of attention for the benefit it has on
osteoarthritis, so researchers are directing attention to
its use 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
Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic patients with osteoporosis will value. Gentle chiropractic care of osteoporosis can be relieving.
Osteoporosis is an age-related condition that affects
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 kind
of osteoporosis. One way to fight osteoporosis is by
balancing calcium levels in the body; however, it can be hard
to do alone. Luckily, chondroitin sulfate has emerged
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 littler
particles can allow its cellular absorption to be
easier. This process allows cells to utilizes
the lipids more efficiently, leading to
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 newer rat study, researchers tested
chondroitin sulfate for osteoporosis and weighed its effectiveness against a calcium supplement, too. 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 deductions
expressed excitement for the potential of postponing
the development of postmenopausal osteoporosis with daily use.
(1) This is beneficial news for Burlington and Hamilton osteoporosis
patients to add to 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 found in the human body,
has been shown to be an effective solution for dealing
with osteoporosis caused 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, stopped osteoclast differentiation, elevated
the absorption of calcium and antioxidant mechanism, and improved
osteoporosis. (2) Now that is an effective osteoporosis nutrition combination!
