Fractures are no fun. Fractures hurt. Fractures slow you down.
Fractures are pricey 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. Manahawkin Chiropractic Center sees many Manahawkin
osteoporotic patients and recommends preventive measures like
nutritional taking supplements to deter
osteoporotic fractures and keep our Manahawkin chiropractic patients
strong and fit.
SUPPLEMENTATION SAVES SUFFERING AND MONEY FOR FRACTURES
Your Manahawkin chiropractor knows well that supplementing with calcium and vitamin D supports the
health of bones and helps them be strong. This feeding and
strengthening ideally should begin in the teen
years, but supplementing at any age is beneficial. A new
study of osteoporosis patients in the European Union and the United States reveals
a couple amazing pieces of data:
(A) more than 500,000 fractures a year in the European
Union and 300,000 in the US could be prevented
if every adult with osteoporosis 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 huge numbers!
Manahawkin Chiropractic Center certainly encourages support
of this effort to save money and, more importantly,
suffering by supplementing with calcium and vitamin D3.
THE PROPER TYPE OF SUPPLEMENT IS KEY
Manahawkin Chiropractic Center is quite certain
that if you are making the effort to take calcium and vitamin D, you want it to be effective. You
want them to be absorbed as much as possible. That’s
where the form of vitamin D you choose is important. Achieving
and keeping adequate levels of vitamin D is also
key for bone and general health. This is an issue
for people everywhere. Why? Absorption. Absorption may
be slowed in conditions like obesity in which nutrients
get stuck in the adipose tissue, in diseases that are recognized
for decreased intestinal absorption, and with some neurological
diseases that require 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) Manahawkin Chiropractic Center sees this as important.
