Colorado Springs Osteoporosis & Fracture Prevention with Calcium and Vitamin D

Fractures are disruptive. 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 surely 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.
