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 urges 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. (2) Soft Health and Healing Clinic knows
this is important.
