The “osteo” conditions gain much
attention at Vancouver Disc Centers and in the research labs. “Chondroitin sulfate” gets
much attention for the benefit it has on
osteoarthritis, so researchers are focusing attention to
its use with the other “osteo”: osteoporosis. Chondroitin
sulfate is a non-drug intervention demonstrating positive advantage in managing and making
better osteoporosis which we know our
Vancouver 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-deteriorating condition triggered
by a deficiency of calcium many times
resulting in painful bone fractures and reduced mobility.
Postmenopausal osteoporosis is the most common 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 effort to help osteoporosis related
to 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 absorption by cells to be
easier. This process allows cells to utilizes
the lipids more efficiently, leading to
stronger bones and muscles. Chondroitin sulfate also helps decrease
inflammation and pain associated with osteoporosis which may
help handle the effects of calcium deficiency-related
osteoporosis. In a recent rat study, researchers tested
chondroitin sulfate for osteoporosis and compared
it to 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
showed excitement for the potential of postponing
the development of postmenopausal osteoporosis with daily consumption.

patients to add to 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 existing in the human body,
has been shown to be an effective solution for controlling osteoporosis triggered by a deficinency of
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,
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!
