The “osteo” conditions gain a lot of
attention at Executive Chiropractic of Iowa 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 use with the other “osteo”: osteoporosis. Chondroitin
sulfate is a non-pharmaceutical intervention that
is showing benefit in managing and making
better osteoporosis which we know our
West Des Moines chiropractic patients with osteoporosis will appreciate. 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 a deficiency of calcium many times
resulting in painful bone fractures and decreased mobility.
Postmenopausal osteoporosis is the most usual type
of osteoporosis. A way to fight 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 adjust
lipid metabolism by breaking lipids down into littler
particles can allow its absorption by cells more easily. This process permits cells to utilizes
the lipids better, leading to
stronger bones and muscles. Chondroitin sulfate also helps decrease
inflammation and pain associated with osteoporosis which may
help control the effects of calcium deficiency-related
osteoporosis. In a recent 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 repaired
femur calcium, bone fracture deflection, and serum indices and enhanced
cortical bone density, mechanical strength, and mineral content of bone. Their deductions
showed 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?
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 enhance each other’s efforts.
Chondroitin sulfate, a natural compound found in the human body,
has been shown to be an effective solution for managing osteoporosis caused by a deficinency of
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, stopped osteoclast differentiation, elevated
the absorption of calcium and antioxidant mechanism, and improved
osteoporosis. (2) Now that is an effective osteoporosis nutrition pair!
