Fractures are disruptive. Fractures hurt. Fractures keep you from doing what you want to do.
Fractures are pricey in not
only in terms of money but also time and suffering. How can osteoporotic fractures
be prevented? Calcium and vitamin D supplementation for those who
have osteoporosis. Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville treats many St. Francisville
osteoporotic patients and recommends preventive measures like
nutritional taking supplements to preempt
osteoporotic fractures and keep our St. Francisville chiropractic patients
strong and healthy.
SUPPLEMENTATION SAVES SUFFERING AND MONEY FOR FRACTURES
Your St. Francisville chiropractor realizes that supplementing with calcium and vitamin D feeds the bones and helps them be strong. This feeding and
strengthening ideally should start in the teen
years, but supplementing at any age is beneficial. A new
study of osteoporosis patients in the European Union and the United States shares
a couple startling pieces of data:
(A) greater than 500,000 fractures a year in the European
Union and 300,000 in the US could be avoided
if every adult with osteoporosis 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 huge figures!
Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville surely encourages support
of this effort to save money and, more significantly,
suffering by supplementing with calcium and vitamin D3.
THE PROPER TYPE OF SUPPLEMENT IS KEY
Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville is quite certain
that if you are going to make the effort to supplement
with calcium and vitamin D, you want it to work. You
want them to be absorbed as much as possible. That’s
where the form of vitamin D you choose is important. Attaining
and maintaining adequate levels of vitamin D is also
key 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 trapped in the adipose tissue, in diseases that are known
for reduced intestinal absorption, and with some neurological
diseases that need special drugs that predispose the
person’s system to not synthesize the calcifediol successfully.
The recommendation in this new research paper is to take
oral calcifediol (vitamin D3) as it is three to five times more powerful and
has a greater rate of intestinal absorption. (2) Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville knows
this is important.
