Fractures are no fun. Fractures are
painful. Fractures slow you down.
Fractures are costly in terms of time, money and suffering. How can osteoporotic fractures
be prevented? Calcium and vitamin D supplementation for those who
have osteoporosis. Wilson Family Chiropractic sees many Millville
osteoporotic patients and endorses preventive measures like
nutritional taking supplements to preempt
osteoporotic fractures and keep our Millville chiropractic patients
strong and in good shape.
SUPPLEMENTATION SAVES SUFFERING AND MONEY FOR FRACTURES
Your Millville chiropractor is
quite aware 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 beneficial. A new
study of osteoporosis patients in the European Union and the United States lists
a couple amazing statistics:
(A) more than 500,000 fractures a year in the EU and 300,000 in the United States could be avoided
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 enormous numbers!
Wilson Family Chiropractic certainly encourages backing this effort to save money and, more significantly,
suffering by supplementing with calcium and vitamin D3.
THE PROPER TYPE OF SUPPLEMENT IS KEY
Wilson Family Chiropractic is very certain
that if you are going to make the effort to take calcium and vitamin D, you want it to be effective. You
want them to be absorbed as much as possible. That’s
where the form of vitamin D you take is important. Achieving
and keeping proper levels of vitamin D is also
key for bone and general health. This is an issue
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 prompt the
person’s system to not synthesize the calcifediol successfully.
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 greater rate of intestinal absorption. (2) Wilson Family Chiropractic knows
this is important.
