Fractures are disruptive. Fractures are
painful. 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 who
have osteoporosis. Spine & Sports Rehab Center sees many Baton Rouge
osteoporotic patients and recommends preventive measures like
nutritional supplementation to deter
osteoporotic fractures and keep our Baton Rouge chiropractic patients
strong and healthy.
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 ideally should begin in the teen
years, but supplementing at any age is beneficial. A new
study of osteoporosis patients in the European Union and the United States lists
a couple amazing facts:
(A) more than 500,000 fractures a year in the EU and 300,000 in the United States could be avoided
if every osteoporotic adult 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 figures!
Spine & Sports Rehab Center surely urges 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
Spine & Sports Rehab Center is very confident
that if you are making the effort to supplement
with calcium and vitamin D, you want it to be effective. You
want the nutrients to be absorbed as much as possible. That’s
where the form of vitamin D you take is important. Attaining
and keeping adequate levels of vitamin D is also
important for bone and general health. This is a problem
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 require special drugs that predispose the
person’s system to not synthesize the calcifediol well.
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 greater rate of intestinal absorption. (2) Spine & Sports Rehab Center recognizes the importance of good
