The “osteo” conditions gain much
attention at Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries and in the research labs. “Chondroitin sulfate” gets
much attention for the positive effect it has on
osteoarthritis, so researchers are directing attention to
its application with the other “osteo”: osteoporosis. Chondroitin
sulfate is a non-drug intervention demonstrating positive advantage for managing and making
better osteoporosis which we know our
Manchester chiropractic patients with osteoporosis will appreciate. Gentle chiropractic care of osteoporosis can be relieving.
Osteoporosis is an age-related condition that concerns
millions of people and a skeleton-deteriorating condition produced
by a deficiency of calcium many times
resulting in painful bone fractures and decreased 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 effort to help osteoporosis caused by calcium deficiency.
CHONDROITIN SULFATE FOR OSTEOPOROSIS – A suitable
Chondroitin sulfate’s ability to control
lipid metabolism by reducing lipids 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 handle the effects of calcium deficiency-related
osteoporosis. In a newer rat study, researchers tested
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
expressed excitement for the potential in delaying
the development of postmenopausal osteoporosis with daily use.

patients to add to their calcium supplementation schedule.
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 complement each other’s effects.
Chondroitin sulfate, a natural compound found in the human body,
has been shown to be an effective solution for controlling osteoporosis caused by a deficinency of
study reported that the combined action of chondroitin sulfate and
calcium eased osteoporosis via gut microbiota and
metabolomics in low calcium rats. Chondroitin sulfate reduced the inflammatory response,
decreased short chain fatty acid synthesis in intestinal
flora, stopped osteoclast differentiation, elevated
the absorption of calcium and antioxidant mechanism, and eased
osteoporosis. (2) Now that is an effective osteoporosis nutrition pair!
