Vancouver Osteoporosis & Fracture Prevention with Calcium and Vitamin D

Fractures are disruptive. 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 averted? Calcium and vitamin D supplementation for those with osteoporosis. Vancouver Spine Care Centre treats many Vancouver osteoporotic patients and endorses preventive measures like nutritional taking supplements to deter osteoporotic fractures and keep our Vancouver chiropractic patients strong and healthy.

SUPPLEMENTATION SAVES SUFFERING AND MONEY FOR FRACTURES

Your Vancouver chiropractor realizes that supplementing with calcium and vitamin D supports the health of 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 new study of osteoporosis patients in the European Union and the United States lists a couple 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 prevented if every adult with osteoporosis in the EU and US used calcium and vitamin D and

(B) €5.7 billion in the EU and $3.3 billion in the US could be saved. (1)

Those are some big numbers! Vancouver Spine Care Centre surely encourages support of this effort to save money and, more significantly, suffering by supplementing with calcium and vitamin D3.

THE PROPER TYPE OF SUPPLEMENT IS KEY

Vancouver Spine Care Centre is very confident that if you are making the effort to take calcium and vitamin D, you want it to be effective. You want them to be absorbed as much as possible. That’s where the form 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 an issue 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 recognized for decreased intestinal absorption, and with some neurological diseases that need special drugs that predispose the person’s system to not synthesize the calcifediol well. 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.
