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. (2) Palmer Chiropractic Center knows
this is important.
