The “osteo” conditions receive a lot of
attention at Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office and in the research labs. “Chondroitin sulfate” gains
a lot of attention for the positive effect it has on
osteoarthritis, so researchers are focusing attention to
its application with the other “osteo”: osteoporosis. Chondroitin
sulfate is a non-pharmaceutical intervention that
is showing positive advantage in managing and improving osteoporosis which we know our
Groton chiropractic patients with osteoporosis will welcome. Gentle chiropractic care of osteoporosis can be relieving.
Osteoporosis is an age-related condition that affects
millions of people and a skeleton-deteriorating condition triggered
by calcium deficiency many times
resulting in painful bone fractures and decreased mobility.
Postmenopausal osteoporosis is the most common form
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 appeared
as a natural companion in this attempts to help osteoporosis caused by calcium deficiency.
CHONDROITIN SULFATE FOR OSTEOPOROSIS – A good
Chondroitin sulfate’s ability to adjust
lipid metabolism by reducing lipids into littler
particles can allow its absorption by cells more easily. This process allows cells to use
the lipids better, leading to
stronger bones and muscles. Chondroitin sulfate also helps lessen
inflammation and pain associated with osteoporosis which may
help manage the effects of calcium deficiency-related
osteoporosis. In a newer rat study, researchers examined
chondroitin sulfate for osteoporosis and compared
it to a calcium supplement, also. 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
communicated excitement for the potential of delaying
the development of postmenopausal osteoporosis with daily use.
(1) This is good news for Groton osteoporosis
patients to add to their calcium supplementation routine.
CALCIUM FOR OSTEOPOROSIS – What about a combo?
Calcium is advised for osteoporosis all
the time. Many of us lack sufficient calcium levels. Both being non-drug interventions, calcium and chondroitin
sulfate may enhance each other’s efforts.
Chondroitin sulfate, a natural compound found in the human body,
has been shown to be an effective solution for dealing
with 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, stopped osteoclast differentiation, promoted
the absorption of calcium and antioxidant mechanism, and improved
osteoporosis. (2) Now that is an effective osteoporosis nutrition combo!
