The “osteo” conditions receive a lot of
attention at Back And Neck Care Center and in the research labs. “Chondroitin sulfate” gains
much attention for the benefit it has on
osteoarthritis, so researchers are focusing attention to
its use 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
Severna Park 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 caused
by a deficiency of calcium often
resulting in painful bone fractures and reduced mobility.
Postmenopausal osteoporosis is the most common type
of osteoporosis. A way to attack osteoporosis is by
balancing calcium levels in the body; however, it can be difficult
to do alone. Fortunately, chondroitin sulfate has emerged
as a natural companion in this attempts to help osteoporosis related
to calcium deficiency.
CHONDROITIN SULFATE FOR OSTEOPOROSIS – A suitable
Chondroitin sulfate’s ability to adjust
lipid metabolism by reducing lipids into littler
particles can allow its cellular absorption to be
easier. This process permits cells to use
the lipids more efficiently, resulting in
stronger bones and muscles. Chondroitin sulfate also helps decrease
inflammation and pain associated with osteoporosis which may
help handle 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, 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 in delaying
the progression of postmenopausal osteoporosis with daily consumption.
(1) This is beneficial news for Severna Park 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 complement each other’s effects.
Chondroitin sulfate, a natural compound existing in the human body,
has been shown to be an effective solution for managing 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,
decreased 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!
