New Roads Osteoporosis & Fracture Prevention with Calcium and Vitamin D

Fractures are no fun. Fractures are painful. Fractures slow you down. Fractures are costly in not only in terms of money but also time and suffering. How can osteoporotic fractures be averted? Calcium and vitamin D supplementation for those with osteoporosis. New Roads Chiropractic Center treats many New Roads osteoporotic patients and recommends preventive measures like nutritional taking supplements to deter osteoporotic fractures and keep our New Roads chiropractic patients strong and fit.

SUPPLEMENTATION SAVES SUFFERING AND MONEY FOR FRACTURES

Your New Roads chiropractor knows well that supplementing with calcium and vitamin D feeds the bones and helps them be strong. This feeding and strengthening preferably 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 lists a some startling statistics:

(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) €5.7 billion in the EU and $3.3 billion in the US could be saved. (1)

Those are some enormous figures! New Roads Chiropractic Center certainly urges support of this effort to save money and, more significantly, suffering by supplementing with calcium and vitamin D3.

THE PROPER TYPE OF SUPPLEMENT IS KEY

New Roads Chiropractic Center is very certain that if you are going to make the effort to supplement with calcium and vitamin D, you want it to be effective. You want them to be absorbed as much as possible. That is where the form of vitamin D you take is important. Attaining and maintaining proper 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 trapped in the adipose tissue, in diseases that are known 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.
