The “osteo” conditions get a lot of
attention at Amelia Chiropractic Clinic and in the research labs. “Chondroitin sulfate” gets
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 for managing and improving osteoporosis which we are sure our
Fernandina Beach 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 a deficiency of calcium many times
resulting in painful bone fractures and decreased mobility.
Postmenopausal osteoporosis is the most common type
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 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 regulate
lipid metabolism by breaking lipids down into littler
particles can allow its absorption by cells to be
easier. This process permits cells to utilizes
the lipids more efficiently, leading to
stronger bones and muscles. Chondroitin sulfate also helps decrease
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 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 improved
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 use.

patients to insert into their calcium supplementation schedule.
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 complement each other’s effects.
Chondroitin sulfate, a natural compound existing in the human body,
has been shown to be an effective solution for handling osteoporosis triggered by calcium deficiency. Another
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,
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!
