Fractures are no fun. Fractures hurt. Fractures keep you from doing what you want to do.
Fractures are costly in terms of time, money and suffering. How can osteoporotic fractures
be averted? Calcium and vitamin D supplementation for those with osteoporosis. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR sees many Colorado Springs
osteoporotic patients and recommends preventive measures like
nutritional taking supplements to deter
osteoporotic fractures and keep our Colorado Springs chiropractic patients
strong and fit.
SUPPLEMENTATION SAVES SUFFERING AND MONEY FOR FRACTURES
Your Colorado 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 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 reveals
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 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 numbers!
The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR certainly encourages support
of this effort to save money and, more significantly,
suffering by supplementing with calcium and vitamin D3.
THE PROPER TYPE OF SUPPLEMENT IS KEY
The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR is very confident
that if you are making 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 is
where the form of vitamin D you choose is important. Attaining
and maintaining proper levels of vitamin D is also
key for bone and general health. This is a problem
for people around the world. Why? Absorption. Absorption may
be delayed 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 require special drugs that predispose the
person’s system to not synthesize the calcifediol effectively.
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) The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR knows
this is important.
