Millville Osteoporosis & Fracture Prevention with Calcium and Vitamin D

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.
