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 amazing pieces of data:
(A) more 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. (2) Vancouver Spine Care Centre sees this as important.
