“We Want Calcium! We Want Calcium!”
Music to your Sitka chiropractor’s ear!
Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka’s response: “Yes, you do!”
Because calcium is a key building block of bone and bone mass along with Vitamin D and other nutrients, it is imperative to feed your bones the nutrients they need to be strong and healthy over the length of a lifetime! Building bone mass is extremely important and must start while we are young, particularly in the growing adolescent years. (1) Certain bone diseases such as Osteoporosis are common among the elderly due to the fact that we tend to lose half our bone mass as we get older. Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka teaches our young patients to build a strong bone mass while they are young which will allow them to lose half of it without suffering osteoporosis side effects such as fracture. Regardless of your age and/or osteoporosis stage, Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka wants to provide you with information about calcium supplementation that can help you treat as well as prevent osteoporosis and its linked problems.
Diet recommendations for osteoporosis prevention and treatment are valuable and demand careful implementation. Osteoporosis is a familiar disease among the elderly, especially postmenopausal women. Calcium supplementation is effective in decreasing the occurrence of osteoporosis. Your Sitka chiropractor is trained in the administration of calcium supplementation as well as the other elements working with calcium to maximize your health response. Use Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka’s osteoporosis and nutritional expertise for your treatment.
What are the different calcium sources that doctors recommend? There are many different calcium sources out there which include: milk, chews, and supplements. We want you to get calcium in any way you can, however, some sources are more suitable than others. Calcium supplementation has some advantages over other means like milk drink and milk chews by increasing calcium in the serum. (1) A good thing!
And what about “brand”? Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka often is asked if brand x is “ok” or not. Our best answer suggestion is to have you check the type of calcium. Calcium citrate is generally better absorbed than other types, but talk with us about your calcium supplement, whatever it may be. In our Sitka chiropractic practice, we’re here for your nutritional needs and questions.
