West Palm Beach Osteoporosis & Fracture Prevention with Calcium and Vitamin D

Fractures are disruptive. Fractures hurt. Fractures slow you down. Fractures are pricey in not only in terms of money but also time and suffering. How can osteoporotic fractures be averted? Calcium and vitamin D supplementation for those with osteoporosis. Chiropractic Care sees many West Palm Beach osteoporotic patients and endorses preventive measures like nutritional supplementation to preempt osteoporotic fractures and keep our West Palm Beach chiropractic patients strong and in good shape.

SUPPLEMENTATION SAVES SUFFERING AND MONEY FOR FRACTURES

Your West Palm Beach chiropractor is quite aware that supplementing with calcium and vitamin D feeds the bones and helps them be strong. This feeding and strengthening ideally should begin in the teen years, but supplementing at any age is of value. A recent study of osteoporosis patients in the European Union and the United States reveals a some startling facts:

(A) greater than 500,000 fractures a year in the European Union and 300,000 in the US could be avoided if every osteoporotic adult in the EU and US used calcium and vitamin D and

(B) lots of money could be saved: €5.7 billion in the EU and $3.3 billion in the US. (1)

Those are some enormous numbers! Chiropractic Care surely urges backing this effort to save money and, more significantly, suffering by supplementing with calcium and vitamin D3.

THE PROPER TYPE OF SUPPLEMENT IS KEY

Chiropractic Care is very certain that if you are going to make the effort to take calcium and vitamin D, you want it to be effective. You want the nutrients to be absorbed as much as possible. That is where the type of vitamin D you choose is important. Achieving and keeping adequate levels of vitamin D is also important for bone and general health. This is an issue for people everywhere. Why? Absorption. Absorption may be slowed in conditions like obesity in which nutrients get stuck in the adipose tissue, in diseases that are known for decreased intestinal absorption, and with some neurological diseases that require special drugs that prompt the person’s system to not synthesize the calcifediol well. The recommendation in this recent research paper is to take oral calcifediol (vitamin D3) as it is three to five times more powerful and has a higher rate of intestinal absorption.
