Fractures are disruptive. Fractures are
painful. Fractures keep you from doing what you want to do.
Fractures are costly in terms of time, money and suffering. How can osteoporotic fractures
be prevented? Calcium and vitamin D supplementation for those with osteoporosis. Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center treats many Pensacola
osteoporotic patients and recommends preventive measures like
nutritional supplementation to preempt
osteoporotic fractures and keep our Pensacola chiropractic patients
strong and in good shape.
SUPPLEMENTATION SAVES SUFFERING AND MONEY FOR FRACTURES
Your Pensacola chiropractor knows well that supplementing with calcium and vitamin D supports the
health of bones and helps them be strong. This feeding and
strengthening ideally should start 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 shares
a couple startling facts:
(A) more than 500,000 fractures a year in the European
Union and 300,000 in the US could be avoided
if every osteoporotic adult 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 huge numbers!
Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center surely encourages support
of this effort to save money and, more importantly,
suffering by supplementing with calcium and vitamin D3.
THE PROPER TYPE OF SUPPLEMENT IS KEY
Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center is quite certain
that if you are making the effort to take calcium and vitamin D, you want it to be effective. You
want the nutrients to be absorbed as much as possible. That is
where the form of vitamin D you take is important. Attaining
and keeping proper levels of vitamin D is also
important 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 recognized
for reduced intestinal absorption, and with some neurological
diseases that need special drugs that prompt the
person’s system to not synthesize the calcifediol effectively.
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) Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center sees this as important.
