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. (2) New Roads Chiropractic Center knows
this is important.
