Burlington and Hamilton Osteoporosis & Fracture Prevention with Calcium and Vitamin D

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.
