Fractures are no fun. Fractures are
painful. Fractures keep you from doing what you want to do.
Fractures are pricey in not
only in terms of money but also time and suffering. How can osteoporotic fractures
be prevented? Calcium and vitamin D supplementation for those who
have osteoporosis. OrthoIllinois Chiropractic treats many McHenry
osteoporotic patients and endorses preventive measures like
nutritional taking supplements to deter
osteoporotic fractures and keep our McHenry chiropractic patients
strong and healthy.
SUPPLEMENTATION SAVES SUFFERING AND MONEY FOR FRACTURES
Your McHenry chiropractor realizes 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 reveals
a some startling pieces of data:
(A) greater than 500,000 fractures a year in the European
Union and 300,000 in the United States 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 enormous figures!
OrthoIllinois Chiropractic 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
OrthoIllinois Chiropractic is very confident
that if you are going to make the effort to supplement
with calcium and vitamin D, you want it to be effective. You
want them to be absorbed as much as possible. That is
where the type of vitamin D you choose is important. Achieving
and keeping proper levels of vitamin D is also
important for bone and general health. This is a problem
for people around the world. Why? Absorption. Absorption may
be hindered in conditions like obesity in which nutrients
get stuck in the adipose tissue, in diseases that are recognized
for reduced intestinal absorption, and with some neurological
diseases that require special drugs that prompt the
person’s system to not synthesize the calcifediol well.
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) OrthoIllinois Chiropractic sees this as important.
