Fractures are no fun. Fractures are
painful. Fractures slow you down.
Fractures are costly in terms of time, money and suffering. How can osteoporotic fractures
be averted? Calcium and vitamin D supplementation for those with osteoporosis. Johnson Chiropractic cares for many Richmond
osteoporotic patients and endorses preventive measures like
nutritional supplementation to preempt
osteoporotic fractures and keep our Richmond chiropractic patients
strong and fit.
SUPPLEMENTATION SAVES SUFFERING AND MONEY FOR FRACTURES
Your Richmond chiropractor knows well that supplementing with calcium and vitamin D supports the
health of bones and helps them be strong. This feeding and
strengthening preferably should begin in the teen
years, but supplementing at any age is of value. A recent
study of osteoporosis patients in the European Union and the United States reveals
a couple 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 big numbers!
Johnson Chiropractic certainly urges backing this effort to save money and, more significantly,
suffering by supplementing with calcium and vitamin D3.
THE PROPER TYPE OF SUPPLEMENT IS KEY
Johnson Chiropractic is very confident
that if you are making 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 form of vitamin D you choose is important. Attaining
and maintaining adequate levels of vitamin D is also
key for bone and general health. This is an issue
for people everywhere. Why? Absorption. Absorption may
be hindered in conditions like obesity in which nutrients
get stuck in the adipose tissue, in diseases that are known
for reduced intestinal absorption, and with some neurological
diseases that need 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 greater rate of intestinal absorption. (2) Johnson Chiropractic sees this as important.
