The “osteo” conditions get a lot of
attention at Hollstrom & Associates Inc and in the research labs. “Chondroitin sulfate” gets
much attention for the benefit it has on
osteoarthritis, so researchers are directing attention to
its application with the other “osteo”: osteoporosis. Chondroitin
sulfate is a non-pharmaceutical intervention demonstrating positive advantage for managing and making
better osteoporosis which we are sure our
Largo 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-weakening condition produced
by a deficiency of calcium often
resulting in painful bone fractures and reduced mobility.
Postmenopausal osteoporosis is the most usual form
of osteoporosis. One way to attack osteoporosis is by
balancing calcium levels in the body; however, it can be difficult
to do alone. Fortunately, chondroitin sulfate has emerged
as a natural companion in this effort to help osteoporosis caused by calcium deficiency.
CHONDROITIN SULFATE FOR OSTEOPOROSIS – A good
Chondroitin sulfate’s ability to adjust
lipid metabolism by breaking lipids down into smaller
particles can allow its absorption by cells to be
easier. This process allows cells to utilizes
the lipids better, leading to
stronger bones and muscles. Chondroitin sulfate also helps lessen
inflammation and pain associated with osteoporosis which may
help handle the effects of calcium deficiency-related
osteoporosis. In a newer rat study, researchers examined
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
communicated excitement for the potential of delaying
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 found in the human body,
has been shown to be an effective solution for controlling osteoporosis triggered by calcium deficiency. Another
study reported 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 improved
osteoporosis. (2) Now that is an effective osteoporosis nutrition combo!
