Tarrytown 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 terms of time, money and suffering. How can osteoporotic fractures be prevented? Calcium and vitamin D supplementation for those who have osteoporosis. Tarrytown Chiropractic cares for many Tarrytown osteoporotic patients and endorses preventive measures like nutritional taking supplements to deter osteoporotic fractures and keep our Tarrytown chiropractic patients strong and fit.

SUPPLEMENTATION SAVES SUFFERING AND MONEY FOR FRACTURES

Your Tarrytown chiropractor knows well that supplementing with calcium and vitamin D feeds the bones and helps them be strong. This feeding and strengthening preferably 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) more than 500,000 fractures a year in the EU and 300,000 in the United States could be prevented if every osteoporotic adult in the EU and US took 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 enormous numbers! Tarrytown Chiropractic certainly encourages backing this effort to save money and, more significantly, suffering by supplementing with calcium and vitamin D3.

THE PROPER TYPE OF SUPPLEMENT IS KEY

Tarrytown Chiropractic is very certain 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 trapped in the adipose tissue, in diseases that are known 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 recent research paper is to take oral calcifediol (vitamin D3) as it is three to five times more powerful and has a higher rate of intestinal absorption.
