Fractures are disruptive. Fractures hurt. Fractures slow you down.
Fractures are costly in terms of time, money and suffering. How can osteoporotic fractures
be prevented? Calcium and vitamin D supplementation for those who
have osteoporosis. Moses Chiropractic treats many West Palm Beach
osteoporotic patients and recommends preventive measures like
nutritional taking supplements to deter
osteoporotic fractures and keep our West Palm Beach chiropractic patients
strong and fit.
SUPPLEMENTATION SAVES SUFFERING AND MONEY FOR FRACTURES
Your West Palm Beach chiropractor is
quite aware that supplementing with calcium and vitamin D feeds the bones and helps them be strong. This feeding and
strengthening preferably should start in the teen
years, but supplementing at any age is of value. A recent
study of osteoporosis patients in the European Union and the United States lists
a some amazing facts:
(A) more 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 figures!
Moses Chiropractic surely urges backing this effort to save money and, more significantly,
suffering by supplementing with calcium and vitamin D3.
THE PROPER TYPE OF SUPPLEMENT IS KEY
Moses Chiropractic is quite confident
that if you are going to make the effort to take calcium and vitamin D, you want it to work. You
want them to be absorbed as much as possible. That is
where the type of vitamin D you take is important. Attaining
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 delayed in conditions like obesity in which nutrients
get stuck in the adipose tissue, in diseases that are known
for decreased intestinal absorption, and with some neurological
diseases that require special drugs that predispose 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) Moses Chiropractic knows
this is important.
