Manahawkin Osteoporosis & Fracture Prevention with Calcium and Vitamin D

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.
