The “osteo” conditions get much
attention at Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc and in the research labs. “Chondroitin sulfate” gains
much 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 benefit in managing and making
better osteoporosis which we are sure our
Fort Wayne 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-weakening condition triggered
by calcium deficiency many times
resulting in painful bone fractures and reduced mobility.
Postmenopausal osteoporosis is the most usual 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 emerged
as a natural companion in this attempts to help osteoporosis related
to calcium deficiency.
CHONDROITIN SULFATE FOR OSTEOPOROSIS – A good
Chondroitin sulfate’s ability to regulate
lipid metabolism by breaking lipids down into littler
particles can allow its absorption by cells more easily. This process permits cells to use
the lipids better, leading to
stronger bones and muscles. Chondroitin sulfate also helps decrease
inflammation and pain related to osteoporosis which may
help handle 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, 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 of postponing
the development of postmenopausal osteoporosis with daily use.

patients to insert into their calcium supplementation schedule.
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 existing in the human body,
has been shown to be an effective solution for controlling osteoporosis triggered 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 reduced the inflammatory response,
reduced short chain fatty acid synthesis in intestinal
flora, halted osteoclast differentiation, elevated
the absorption of calcium and antioxidant mechanism, and improved
osteoporosis. (2) Now that is an effective osteoporosis nutrition pair!
