Sandy Springs Osteoporosis & Fracture Prevention with Calcium and Vitamin D

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.
