Richmond Osteoporosis & Fracture Prevention with Calcium and Vitamin D

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.
