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 supplementation to preempt
osteoporotic fractures and keep our Minster chiropractic patients
strong and in good shape.
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 prompt 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. (2) Minster Chiropractic Center knows
this is important.
