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 supplementation 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 everywhere. Why? Absorption. Absorption may
be delayed 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 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. (2) Amelia Chiropractic Clinic knows
this is important.
