Williamson Osteoporosis & Fracture Prevention with Calcium and Vitamin D

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 important 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.
