The “osteo” conditions get much attention at Moriarty Chiropractic and in the research labs. “Chondroitin sulfate” gains much attention for the benefit it has on osteoarthritis, so researchers are turning attention to its use with the other “osteo”: osteoporosis. Chondroitin sulfate is a non-pharmaceutical intervention that is showing positive advantage in managing and improving osteoporosis which we are sure our Nashua 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 caused by a deficiency of calcium many times resulting in painful bone fractures and decreased mobility. Postmenopausal osteoporosis is the most common kind of osteoporosis. One 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 attempts to help osteoporosis caused by calcium deficiency.
CHONDROITIN SULFATE FOR OSTEOPOROSIS – A suitable addition.
Chondroitin sulfate’s ability to control lipid metabolism by breaking lipids down 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 lessen inflammation and pain related to 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 enhanced cortical bone density, mechanical strength, and mineral content of bone. Their deductions communicated excitement for the potential of delaying the progression of postmenopausal osteoporosis with daily consumption. (1) This is beneficial news for Nashua osteoporosis patients to insert into their calcium supplementation schedule.
CALCIUM FOR OSTEOPOROSIS – What about a combo?
Osteoporosis sufferers are advised to take calcium 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 managing 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 slowed down the inflammatory response, reduced short chain fatty acid synthesis in intestinal flora, halted osteoclast differentiation, promoted the absorption of calcium and antioxidant mechanism, and improved osteoporosis.
