Fernandina Beach Osteoporosis & Fracture Prevention with Calcium and Vitamin D

Fractures are no fun. Fractures are painful. Fractures keep you from doing what you want to do. Fractures are pricey in terms of time, money and suffering. How can osteoporotic fractures be prevented? Calcium and vitamin D supplementation for those with osteoporosis. Amelia Chiropractic Clinic sees many Fernandina Beach osteoporotic patients and endorses preventive measures like nutritional taking supplements to deter osteoporotic fractures and keep our Fernandina Beach chiropractic patients strong and in good shape.

SUPPLEMENTATION SAVES SUFFERING AND MONEY FOR FRACTURES

Your Fernandina Beach chiropractor realizes that supplementing with calcium and vitamin D supports the health of 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 recent study of osteoporosis patients in the European Union and the United States reveals a couple startling statistics:

(A) greater 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 huge numbers! Amelia Chiropractic Clinic certainly 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

Amelia Chiropractic Clinic is very confident that if you are going to make the effort to supplement with calcium and vitamin D, you want it to be effective. You want the nutrients to be absorbed as much as possible. That is where the type of vitamin D you take is important. Attaining and maintaining adequate 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 trapped in the adipose tissue, in diseases that are recognized 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 recent research paper is to take oral calcifediol (vitamin D3) as it is three to five times more powerful and has a greater rate of intestinal absorption.
