Fractures are disruptive. Fractures are
painful. 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 with osteoporosis. Layden Chiropractic treats many Plainville
osteoporotic patients and endorses preventive measures like
nutritional taking supplements to deter
osteoporotic fractures and keep our Plainville chiropractic patients
strong and in good shape.
SUPPLEMENTATION SAVES SUFFERING AND MONEY FOR FRACTURES
Your Plainville chiropractor is
quite aware that supplementing with calcium and vitamin D supports the
health of bones and helps them be strong. This feeding and
strengthening ideally should begin in the teen
years, but supplementing at any age is beneficial. A recent
study of osteoporosis patients in the European Union and the United States shares
a some startling facts:
(A) more than 500,000 fractures a year in the European
Union and 300,000 in the United States could be avoided
if every osteoporotic adult in the EU and US used
calcium and vitamin D and
(B) lots of money could be saved: €5.7 billion in the EU and $3.3 billion in
the US. (1)
Those are some big figures!
Layden Chiropractic surely urges backing this effort to save money and, more importantly,
suffering by supplementing with calcium and vitamin D3.
THE PROPER TYPE OF SUPPLEMENT IS KEY
Layden Chiropractic is quite certain
that if you are going to make the effort to take calcium and vitamin D, you want it to work. You
want them to be absorbed as much as possible. That is
where the type of vitamin D you choose is important. Achieving
and maintaining 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 hindered 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 take
oral calcifediol (vitamin D3) as it is three to five times more powerful and
has a higher rate of intestinal absorption. (2) Layden Chiropractic sees this as important.
