Fractures are disruptive. Fractures are
painful. Fractures keep you from doing what you want to do.
Fractures are costly 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. Apple Country Chiropractic cares for many Williamson
osteoporotic patients and recommends preventive measures like
nutritional supplementation to preempt
osteoporotic fractures and keep our Williamson chiropractic patients
strong and in good shape.
SUPPLEMENTATION SAVES SUFFERING AND MONEY FOR FRACTURES
Your Williamson 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 of value. A new
study of osteoporosis patients in the European Union and the United States lists
a couple startling facts:
(A) more than 500,000 fractures a year in the European
Union and 300,000 in the United States 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 big figures!
Apple Country Chiropractic surely urges backing this effort to save money and, more importantly,
suffering by supplementing with calcium and vitamin D3.
THE PROPER TYPE OF SUPPLEMENT IS KEY
Apple Country Chiropractic is very confident
that if you are going to make the effort to supplement
with calcium and vitamin D, you want it to work. You
want the nutrients to be absorbed as much as possible. That is
where the type of vitamin D you take is important. Attaining
and keeping adequate levels of vitamin D is also
key for bone and general health. This is a problem
for people around the world. Why? Absorption. Absorption may
be delayed in conditions like obesity in which nutrients
get stuck in the adipose tissue, in diseases that are recognized
for reduced intestinal absorption, and with some neurological
diseases that need special drugs that prompt 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) Apple Country Chiropractic sees this as important.
