The “osteo” conditions gain a lot of
attention at Pflugerville Wellness Center 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-drug intervention that
is showing benefit for managing and making
better osteoporosis which we are sure our
Pflugerville chiropractic patients with osteoporosis will welcome. Gentle chiropractic care of osteoporosis can be relieving.
Osteoporosis is an age-related condition that concerns
millions of people and a skeleton-deteriorating condition triggered
by calcium deficiency often
resulting in painful bone fractures and reduced 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 hard
to do alone. Luckily, chondroitin sulfate has appeared
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 control
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 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, 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 in postponing
the progression of postmenopausal osteoporosis with daily consumption.

patients to insert into their calcium supplementation schedule.
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 enhance 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 triggered by calcium deficiency. Another
study stated 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,
decreased 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 pair!
