The “osteo” conditions get much
attention at Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center and in the research labs. “Chondroitin sulfate” gains
much attention for the positive effect it has on
osteoarthritis, so researchers are turning attention to
its application with the other “osteo”: osteoporosis. Chondroitin
sulfate is a non-drug intervention demonstrating benefit in managing and improving osteoporosis which we know our
Pensacola 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 decreased mobility.
Postmenopausal osteoporosis is the most usual form
of osteoporosis. One way to attack osteoporosis is by
balancing calcium levels in the body; however, it can be hard
to do alone. Fortunately, chondroitin sulfate has surfaced
as a natural companion in this effort to help osteoporosis caused by calcium deficiency.
CHONDROITIN SULFATE FOR OSTEOPOROSIS – A suitable
Chondroitin sulfate’s ability to regulate
lipid metabolism by reducing lipids into littler
particles can allow its cellular absorption more easily. This process permits cells to utilizes
the lipids more efficiently, leading to
stronger bones and muscles. Chondroitin sulfate also helps lessen
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, too. Chondroitin sulfate and
chondroitin sulfate oligosaccharide more effectively restored
femur calcium, bone fracture deflection, and serum indices and enhanced
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 use.

patients to insert into their calcium supplementation routine.
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 effects.
Chondroitin sulfate, a natural compound found in the human body,
has been shown to be an effective solution for managing osteoporosis triggered by a deficinency of
study reported that the combined action of chondroitin sulfate and
calcium eased 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, promoted
the absorption of calcium and antioxidant mechanism, and eased
osteoporosis. (2) Now that is an effective osteoporosis nutrition combination!
