Fractures are disruptive. 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 who
have osteoporosis. Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka sees many Sitka
osteoporotic patients and endorses preventive measures like
nutritional supplementation to deter
osteoporotic fractures and keep our Sitka chiropractic patients
strong and in good shape.
SUPPLEMENTATION SAVES SUFFERING AND MONEY FOR FRACTURES
Your Sitka chiropractor is
quite aware that supplementing with calcium and vitamin D feeds the bones and helps them be strong. This feeding and
strengthening ideally should start 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 some startling statistics:
(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 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 big numbers!
Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka surely urges support
of this effort to save money and, more significantly,
suffering by supplementing with calcium and vitamin D3.
THE PROPER TYPE OF SUPPLEMENT IS KEY
Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka is very 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 choose is important. Achieving
and keeping proper levels of vitamin D is also
important for bone and general health. This is an issue
for people everywhere. Why? Absorption. Absorption may
be slowed 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 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) Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka knows
this is important.
