Minster Osteoporosis & Fracture Prevention with Calcium and Vitamin D

Fractures are disruptive. Fractures hurt. Fractures slow you down. Fractures are pricey 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. Minster Chiropractic Center cares for many Minster osteoporotic patients and endorses preventive measures like nutritional taking supplements to preempt osteoporotic fractures and keep our Minster chiropractic patients strong and healthy.

SUPPLEMENTATION SAVES SUFFERING AND MONEY FOR FRACTURES

Your Minster chiropractor knows well that supplementing with calcium and vitamin D feeds the bones and helps them be strong. This feeding and strengthening preferably should start 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 lists a couple amazing pieces of data:

(A) greater than 500,000 fractures a year in the EU and 300,000 in the United States could be prevented if every adult with osteoporosis in the EU and US took 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 huge figures! Minster Chiropractic Center surely 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

Minster Chiropractic Center is very confident 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’s where the form of vitamin D you choose is important. Attaining and keeping proper levels of vitamin D is also key for bone and general health. This is a problem for people everywhere. Why? Absorption. Absorption may be slowed in conditions like obesity in which nutrients get stuck in the adipose tissue, in diseases that are recognized for decreased intestinal absorption, and with some neurological diseases that need special drugs that predispose the person’s system to not synthesize the calcifediol well. The recommendation in this new research paper is to use oral calcifediol (vitamin D3) as it is three to five times more powerful and has a higher rate of intestinal absorption.
