The “osteo” conditions gain much attention at Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic 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 making better osteoporosis which we know our Augusta 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-weakening condition caused by a deficiency of calcium often resulting in painful bone fractures and reduced mobility. Postmenopausal osteoporosis is the most usual kind of osteoporosis. A way to fight osteoporosis is by balancing calcium levels in the body; however, it can be difficult to do alone. Fortunately, chondroitin sulfate has appeared as a natural companion in this effort to help osteoporosis caused by calcium deficiency.
CHONDROITIN SULFATE FOR OSTEOPOROSIS – A suitable addition.
Chondroitin sulfate’s ability to adjust lipid metabolism by reducing lipids into littler particles can allow its absorption by cells to be easier. This process allows cells to utilizes the lipids better, resulting in stronger bones and muscles. Chondroitin sulfate also helps lessen inflammation and pain related to osteoporosis which may help control the effects of calcium deficiency-related osteoporosis. In a newer rat study, researchers examined chondroitin sulfate for osteoporosis and weighed its effectiveness against a calcium supplement, too. 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 progression of postmenopausal osteoporosis with daily consumption. (1) This is good news for Augusta 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 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 caused by a deficinency of calcium. Another study reported that the combined action of chondroitin sulfate and calcium eased 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, elevated the absorption of calcium and antioxidant mechanism, and improved osteoporosis.
