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. (2) Tarrytown Chiropractic sees this as important.
