Fractures are no fun. Fractures hurt. Fractures keep you from doing what you want to do.
Fractures are costly in terms of time, money and suffering. How can osteoporotic fractures
be averted? Calcium and vitamin D supplementation for those who
have osteoporosis. Aaron Chiropractic Clinic sees many Fort Wayne
osteoporotic patients and recommends preventive measures like
nutritional taking supplements to preempt
osteoporotic fractures and keep our Fort Wayne chiropractic patients
strong and healthy.
SUPPLEMENTATION SAVES SUFFERING AND MONEY FOR FRACTURES
Your Fort Wayne chiropractor realizes 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 some amazing pieces of data:
(A) more than 500,000 fractures a year in the EU and 300,000 in the US could be avoided
if every adult with osteoporosis in the EU and US took
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 huge numbers!
Aaron Chiropractic Clinic certainly encourages 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
Aaron Chiropractic Clinic is quite certain
that if you are making the effort to take calcium and vitamin D, you want it to work. You
want the nutrients to be absorbed as much as possible. That is
where the type of vitamin D you take is important. Achieving
and maintaining adequate levels of vitamin D is also
important for bone and general health. This is a problem
for people everywhere. Why? Absorption. Absorption may
be slowed 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 predispose the
person’s system to not synthesize the calcifediol successfully.
The recommendation in this new research paper is to use
oral calcifediol (vitamin D3) as it is three to five times more powerful and
has a greater rate of intestinal absorption. (2) Aaron Chiropractic Clinic sees this as important.
