San Jose Osteoporosis & Fracture Prevention with Calcium and Vitamin D

Fractures are disruptive. Fractures hurt. Fractures slow you down. 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. Chiropractic Solutions sees many San Jose osteoporotic patients and recommends preventive measures like nutritional taking supplements to deter osteoporotic fractures and keep our San Jose chiropractic patients strong and in good shape.

SUPPLEMENTATION SAVES SUFFERING AND MONEY FOR FRACTURES

Your San Jose chiropractor is quite aware that supplementing with calcium and vitamin D feeds the bones and helps them be strong. This feeding and strengthening ideally should begin 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 lists a some startling facts:

(A) more than 500,000 fractures a year in the EU and 300,000 in the US could be prevented 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 enormous figures! Chiropractic Solutions 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

Chiropractic Solutions is very confident that if you are going to make the effort to supplement with calcium and vitamin D, you want it to work. You want them to be absorbed as much as possible. That’s where the form of vitamin D you choose is important. Achieving and maintaining adequate levels of vitamin D is also important 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 known for reduced intestinal absorption, and with some neurological diseases that require special drugs that predispose the person’s system to not synthesize the calcifediol successfully. 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.
