Fractures are disruptive. Fractures hurt. Fractures keep you from doing what you want to do. Fractures are costly in not only in terms of money but also time and suffering. How can osteoporotic fractures be averted? Calcium and vitamin D supplementation for those with osteoporosis. Moriarty Chiropractic treats many Nashua osteoporotic patients and endorses preventive measures like nutritional supplementation to preempt osteoporotic fractures and keep our Nashua chiropractic patients strong and fit.
SUPPLEMENTATION SAVES SUFFERING AND MONEY FOR FRACTURES
Your Nashua chiropractor realizes that supplementing with calcium and vitamin D supports the health of bones and helps them be strong. This feeding and strengthening ideally should begin in the teen years, but supplementing at any age is beneficial. A recent study of osteoporosis patients in the European Union and the United States shares a couple startling pieces of data:
(A) greater than 500,000 fractures a year in the EU and 300,000 in the United States could be avoided if every adult with osteoporosis 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 huge numbers! Moriarty Chiropractic surely encourages backing this effort to save money and, more importantly, suffering by supplementing with calcium and vitamin D3.
THE PROPER TYPE OF SUPPLEMENT IS KEY
Moriarty Chiropractic is very confident that if you are going to make the effort to supplement with calcium and vitamin D, you want it to work. You want the nutrients to be absorbed as much as possible. That is where the form of vitamin D you choose is important. Attaining and maintaining proper levels of vitamin D is also key 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 decreased intestinal absorption, and with some neurological diseases that require special drugs that prompt the person’s system to not synthesize the calcifediol well. The recommendation in this new 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.
