Fractures are disruptive. Fractures are
painful. Fractures keep you from doing what you want to do.
Fractures are pricey in terms of time, money and suffering. How can osteoporotic fractures
be prevented? Calcium and vitamin D supplementation for those with osteoporosis. Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation sees many Tonawanda
osteoporotic patients and recommends preventive measures like
nutritional taking supplements to deter
osteoporotic fractures and keep our Tonawanda chiropractic patients
strong and in good shape.
SUPPLEMENTATION SAVES SUFFERING AND MONEY FOR FRACTURES
Your Tonawanda chiropractor is
quite aware that supplementing with calcium and vitamin D supports the
health of bones and helps them be strong. This feeding and
strengthening preferably should begin 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 lists
a some startling pieces of data:
(A) more than 500,000 fractures a year in the European
Union and 300,000 in the United States could be prevented
if every osteoporotic adult in the EU and US took
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 Spine Sports And Rehabilitation surely encourages support
of this effort to save money and, more importantly,
suffering by supplementing with calcium and vitamin D3.
THE PROPER TYPE OF SUPPLEMENT IS KEY
Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation is very confident
that if you are making the effort to take calcium and vitamin D, you want it to work. You
want them to be absorbed as much as possible. That’s
where the type of vitamin D you choose is important. Attaining
and maintaining adequate levels of vitamin D is also
important for bone and general health. This is an issue
for people around the world. Why? Absorption. Absorption may
be hindered in conditions like obesity in which nutrients
get trapped in the adipose tissue, in diseases that are recognized
for decreased intestinal absorption, and with some neurological
diseases that require special drugs that predispose the
person’s system to not synthesize the calcifediol well.
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) Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation sees this as important.
