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 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 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. (2) Chiropractic Solutions knows
this is important.
