The “osteo” conditions gain a lot of
attention at Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic and in the research labs. “Chondroitin sulfate” receives
a lot of 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-prescription intervention that
is showing positive advantage for managing and improving osteoporosis which we are sure our
Montreal 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-weakening condition caused
by a deficiency of calcium many times
resulting in painful bone fractures and decreased mobility.
Postmenopausal osteoporosis is the most usual kind
of osteoporosis. A way to fight osteoporosis is by
balancing calcium levels in the body; however, it can be difficult
to do alone. Luckily, chondroitin sulfate has emerged
as a natural companion in this attempts to help osteoporosis related
to calcium deficiency.
CHONDROITIN SULFATE FOR OSTEOPOROSIS – A good
Chondroitin sulfate’s ability to regulate
lipid metabolism by breaking lipids down into littler
particles can allow its cellular absorption more easily. This process permits cells to utilizes
the lipids more efficiently, leading to
stronger bones and muscles. Chondroitin sulfate also helps reduce
inflammation and pain related to osteoporosis which may
help manage 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, also. Chondroitin sulfate and
chondroitin sulfate oligosaccharide more effectively restored
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 in delaying
the progression of postmenopausal osteoporosis with daily consumption.
(1) This is good news for Montreal osteoporosis
patients to add to their calcium supplementation routine.
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 complement 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 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 improved
osteoporosis. (2) Now that is an effective osteoporosis nutrition pair!
