The “osteo” conditions get a lot of
attention at Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. and in the research labs. “Chondroitin sulfate” receives
a lot of 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-pharmaceutical intervention demonstrating positive advantage in managing and making
better osteoporosis which we know our
Auburn chiropractic patients with osteoporosis will value. 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 often
resulting in painful bone fractures and reduced mobility.
Postmenopausal osteoporosis is the most usual form
of osteoporosis. One way to fight 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 related
to calcium deficiency.
CHONDROITIN SULFATE FOR OSTEOPOROSIS – A good
Chondroitin sulfate’s ability to regulate
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 decrease
inflammation and pain related to osteoporosis which may
help manage 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 improved
cortical bone density, mechanical strength, and mineral content of bone. Their conclusions
communicated excitement for the potential in postponing
the development 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 enhance 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 caused by calcium deficiency. Another
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 slowed down the inflammatory response,
lowered 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 pair!
