St. Francisville Chiropractic Osteoporosis Help: Calcium Supplement

We want calcium!“We Want Calcium! We Want Calcium!”
Music to your St. Francisville chiropractor’s ear!
Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville’s response: “Yes, you do!”

Because calcium is a key building block of bone and bone mass along with Vitamin D and other nutrients, it is crucial to supply your bones the nutrients necessary to be robust and healthy over the course of a lifetime! Building bone mass is very important and must start while we are young, particularly in the growing teen years. (1) Certain bone diseases such as Osteoporosis are common among the elderly because we are more likely to lose half our bone mass as we get older. Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville teaches our young patients to build a strong bone mass while they are young which will allow them to lose half of it without suffering osteoporosis side effects such as fracture. Regardless of your age and/or osteoporosis stage, Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville wants to provide you with information about calcium supplementation that can help you treat as well as prevent osteoporosis and its affiliated problems.

Diet suggestions for osteoporosis prevention and treatment are valuable and demand careful implementation. Osteoporosis is a common disease among older people, especially postmenopausal women. Calcium supplementation is useful in decreasing the occurrence of osteoporosis.  Your St. Francisville chiropractor is schooled in the administration of calcium supplementation as well as the other elements working with calcium to maximize your health response. Use Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville’s osteoporosis and nutritional expertise for your treatment.

What are the various calcium sources that doctors suggest?  There are a lot of different calcium sources out there which include: milk, chews, and supplements. We want you to get calcium in any way you can, however, some sources are more suitable than others. Calcium supplementation has some advantages over other means like milk drink and milk chews by elevating calcium in the serum. (1) A good thing!

And what about “brand”? Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville often is asked if brand x is “ok” or not. Our best reply is to have you check the type of calcium. Calcium citrate is generally better absorbed than other types, but talk with us about your calcium supplement, whatever it may be. In our St. Francisville chiropractic practice, we’re here for your nutritional needs and questions.
