Fractures are disruptive. Fractures are
painful. Fractures slow you down.
Fractures are costly in not
only in terms of money but also time and suffering. How can osteoporotic fractures
be averted? Calcium and vitamin D supplementation for those who
have osteoporosis. Back And Neck Care Center treats many Severna Park
osteoporotic patients and endorses preventive measures like
nutritional supplementation to deter
osteoporotic fractures and keep our Severna Park chiropractic patients
strong and healthy.
SUPPLEMENTATION SAVES SUFFERING AND MONEY FOR FRACTURES
Your Severna Park chiropractor realizes that supplementing with calcium and vitamin D feeds the bones and helps them be strong. This feeding and
strengthening preferably should begin in the teen
years, but supplementing at any age is of value. A new
study of osteoporosis patients in the European Union and the United States reveals
a couple startling statistics:
(A) greater than 500,000 fractures a year in the European
Union and 300,000 in the US could be prevented
if every osteoporotic adult 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!
Back And Neck Care Center 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
Back And Neck Care Center is quite certain
that if you are going to make the effort to supplement
with 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 take is important. Achieving
and keeping proper levels of vitamin D is also
important for bone and general health. This is a problem
for people everywhere. Why? Absorption. Absorption may
be delayed in conditions like obesity in which nutrients
get stuck in the adipose tissue, in diseases that are known
for reduced intestinal absorption, and with some neurological
diseases that need special drugs that prompt the
person’s system to not synthesize the calcifediol effectively.
The recommendation in this new research paper is to take
oral calcifediol (vitamin D3) as it is three to five times more powerful and
has a greater rate of intestinal absorption. (2) Back And Neck Care Center knows
this is important.
