Brooks Osteoporosis & Fracture Prevention with Calcium and Vitamin D

Fractures are disruptive. Fractures are painful. Fractures keep you from doing what you want to do. Fractures are pricey in terms of time, money and suffering. How can osteoporotic fractures be averted? Calcium and vitamin D supplementation for those with osteoporosis. Soft Health and Healing Clinic sees many Brooks osteoporotic patients and recommends preventive measures like nutritional supplementation to deter osteoporotic fractures and keep our Brooks chiropractic patients strong and in good shape.

SUPPLEMENTATION SAVES SUFFERING AND MONEY FOR FRACTURES

Your Brooks chiropractor knows well 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 statistics:

(A) more than 500,000 fractures a year in the EU and 300,000 in the United States could be prevented if every adult with osteoporosis 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 big numbers! Soft Health and Healing Clinic surely 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

Soft Health and Healing Clinic is quite certain that if you are making the effort to take calcium and vitamin D, you want it to be effective. You want the nutrients to be absorbed as much as possible. That’s where the form of vitamin D you choose is important. Attaining and keeping proper levels of vitamin D is also key for bone and general health. This is a problem for people everywhere. Why? Absorption. Absorption may be hindered 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 require special drugs that predispose the person’s system to not synthesize the calcifediol well. The recommendation in this recent research paper is to use oral calcifediol (vitamin D3) as it is three to five times more powerful and has a higher rate of intestinal absorption.
