Fractures are no fun. Fractures are
painful. Fractures slow you down.
Fractures are pricey in not
only in terms of money but also time and suffering. How can osteoporotic fractures
be averted? Calcium and vitamin D supplementation for those with osteoporosis. Cross Chiropractic Center sees many Sandy Springs
osteoporotic patients and recommends preventive measures like
nutritional taking supplements to deter
osteoporotic fractures and keep our Sandy Springs chiropractic patients
strong and fit.
SUPPLEMENTATION SAVES SUFFERING AND MONEY FOR FRACTURES
Your Sandy Springs chiropractor knows well that supplementing with calcium and vitamin D supports the
health of bones and helps them be strong. This feeding and
strengthening ideally should begin 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 shares
a couple startling facts:
(A) greater than 500,000 fractures a year in the European
Union and 300,000 in the US 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 enormous figures!
Cross Chiropractic Center certainly 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
Cross Chiropractic Center is very certain
that if you are making the effort to take calcium and vitamin D, you want it to be effective. You
want the nutrients to be absorbed as much as possible. That’s
where the form of vitamin D you take is important. Achieving
and maintaining adequate levels of vitamin D is also
key for bone and general health. This is an issue
for people everywhere. 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 reduced intestinal absorption, and with some neurological
diseases that need special drugs that predispose the
person’s system to not synthesize the calcifediol effectively.
The recommendation in this recent research paper is to use
oral calcifediol (vitamin D3) as it is three to five times more powerful and
has a greater rate of intestinal absorption. (2) Cross Chiropractic Center knows
this is important.
