Fractures are no fun. 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 certainly 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 making 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 take 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. (2) Chiropractic Care knows
this is important.
