Fractures are no fun. Fractures hurt. Fractures slow you down.
Fractures are pricey in terms of time, money and suffering. How can osteoporotic fractures
be prevented? Calcium and vitamin D supplementation for those who
have osteoporosis. Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation sees many Baton Rouge
osteoporotic patients and endorses preventive measures like
nutritional supplementation to deter
osteoporotic fractures and keep our Baton Rouge chiropractic patients
strong and fit.
SUPPLEMENTATION SAVES SUFFERING AND MONEY FOR FRACTURES
Your Baton Rouge chiropractor realizes that supplementing with calcium and vitamin D feeds the bones and helps them be strong. This feeding and
strengthening preferably should start 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 lists
a couple startling statistics:
(A) greater than 500,000 fractures a year in the European
Union and 300,000 in the US could be prevented
if every adult with osteoporosis in the EU and US used
calcium and vitamin D and
(B) lots of money could be saved: €5.7 billion in the EU and $3.3 billion in
the US. (1)
Those are some enormous numbers!
Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation certainly encourages support
of this effort to save money and, more importantly,
suffering by supplementing with calcium and vitamin D3.
THE PROPER TYPE OF SUPPLEMENT IS KEY
Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation is very confident
that if you are making 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 type of vitamin D you choose is important. Attaining
and maintaining adequate levels of vitamin D is also
important for bone and general health. This is an issue
for people everywhere. Why? Absorption. Absorption may
be delayed in conditions like obesity in which nutrients
get stuck in the adipose tissue, in diseases that are recognized
for decreased intestinal absorption, and with some neurological
diseases that need special drugs that predispose the
person’s system to not synthesize the calcifediol successfully.
The recommendation in this new research paper is to use
oral calcifediol (vitamin D3) as it is three to five times more powerful and
has a higher rate of intestinal absorption. (2) Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation knows
this is important.
