Lynchburg Osteoporosis & Fracture Prevention with Calcium and Vitamin D

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 with osteoporosis. Palmer Chiropractic Center sees many Lynchburg osteoporotic patients and endorses preventive measures like nutritional supplementation to preempt osteoporotic fractures and keep our Lynchburg chiropractic patients strong and fit.

SUPPLEMENTATION SAVES SUFFERING AND MONEY FOR FRACTURES

Your Lynchburg chiropractor knows well that supplementing with calcium and vitamin D feeds the 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 lists a couple amazing statistics:

(A) more than 500,000 fractures a year in the European Union 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! Palmer 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

Palmer Chiropractic Center is very confident 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’s where the type 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 an issue for people around the world. Why? Absorption. Absorption may be slowed in conditions like obesity in which nutrients get trapped in the adipose tissue, in diseases that are recognized for decreased intestinal absorption, and with some neurological diseases that need special drugs that prompt 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 higher rate of intestinal absorption.
