Fractures are no fun. Fractures hurt. Fractures slow you down.
Fractures are pricey in terms of time, money and suffering. How can osteoporotic fractures
be averted? Calcium and vitamin D supplementation for those who
have osteoporosis. Spinal Care Clinic sees many Burlington and Hamilton
osteoporotic patients and endorses preventive measures like
nutritional supplementation to deter
osteoporotic fractures and keep our Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic patients
strong and healthy.
SUPPLEMENTATION SAVES SUFFERING AND MONEY FOR FRACTURES
Your Burlington and Hamilton 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 of value. A recent
study of osteoporosis patients in the European Union and the United States shares
a some amazing statistics:
(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) €5.7 billion in the EU and $3.3 billion in the US could be saved. (1)
Those are some big figures!
Spinal Care Clinic certainly encourages backing this effort to save money and, more importantly,
suffering by supplementing with calcium and vitamin D3.
THE PROPER TYPE OF SUPPLEMENT IS KEY
Spinal Care Clinic is very certain
that if you are going to make the effort to take 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 proper 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 slowed in conditions like obesity in which nutrients
get trapped in the adipose tissue, in diseases that are known
for decreased intestinal absorption, and with some neurological
diseases that require special drugs that predispose the
person’s system to not synthesize the calcifediol effectively.
The recommendation in this recent 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) Spinal Care Clinic knows
this is important.
