The “osteo” conditions get a lot of
attention at New Roads Chiropractic Center and in the research labs. “Chondroitin sulfate” receives
much attention for the positive effect it has on
osteoarthritis, so researchers are directing attention to
its use with the other “osteo”: osteoporosis. Chondroitin
sulfate is a non-prescription intervention demonstrating benefit for managing and making
better osteoporosis which we are sure our
New Roads 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 calcium deficiency many times
resulting in painful bone fractures and decreased 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. Luckily, chondroitin sulfate has emerged
as a natural companion in this effort to help osteoporosis caused by calcium deficiency.
CHONDROITIN SULFATE FOR OSTEOPOROSIS – A good
Chondroitin sulfate’s ability to control
lipid metabolism by breaking lipids down into smaller
particles can allow its cellular absorption to be
easier. This process permits cells to utilizes
the lipids better, leading to
stronger bones and muscles. Chondroitin sulfate also helps reduce
inflammation and pain associated with osteoporosis which may
help control the effects of calcium deficiency-related
osteoporosis. In a recent 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 restored
femur calcium, bone fracture deflection, and serum indices and improved
cortical bone density, mechanical strength, and mineral content of bone. Their deductions
expressed excitement for the potential in postponing
the progression of postmenopausal osteoporosis with daily consumption.

patients to add to 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 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, halted osteoclast differentiation, promoted
the absorption of calcium and antioxidant mechanism, and eased
osteoporosis. (2) Now that is an effective osteoporosis nutrition combo!
