The “osteo” conditions receive a lot of
attention at OrthoIllinois Chiropractic and in the research labs. “Chondroitin sulfate” gains
a lot of attention for the benefit it has on
osteoarthritis, so researchers are focusing attention to
its application with the other “osteo”: osteoporosis. Chondroitin
sulfate is a non-prescription intervention that
is showing positive advantage for managing and making
better osteoporosis which we know our
McHenry chiropractic patients with osteoporosis will appreciate. Gentle chiropractic care of osteoporosis can be relieving.
Osteoporosis is an age-related condition that concerns
millions of people and a skeleton-deteriorating condition produced
by calcium deficiency often
resulting in painful bone fractures and reduced mobility.
Postmenopausal osteoporosis is the most common form
of osteoporosis. A way to fight osteoporosis is by
balancing calcium levels in the body; however, it can be hard
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 suitable
Chondroitin sulfate’s ability to control
lipid metabolism by breaking lipids down into littler
particles can allow its absorption by cells to be
easier. This process permits cells to use
the lipids better, leading to
stronger bones and muscles. Chondroitin sulfate also helps lessen
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 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 conclusions
showed excitement for the potential of postponing
the progression of postmenopausal osteoporosis with daily consumption.

patients to insert into their calcium supplementation routine.
CALCIUM FOR OSTEOPOROSIS – What about a combo?
Calcium is recommended for osteoporosis all
the time. Many of us lack sufficient calcium levels. Both being non-drug interventions, calcium and chondroitin
sulfate may complement each other’s effects.
Chondroitin sulfate, a natural compound found in the human body,
has been shown to be an effective solution for handling osteoporosis triggered by a deficinency of
study reported 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 eased
osteoporosis. (2) Now that is an effective osteoporosis nutrition combination!
