McHenry Osteoporosis & Fracture Prevention with Calcium and Vitamin D

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. Spengel 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 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 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! Spengel 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

Spengel 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 key 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 trapped 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.
