Ashburn Osteoporosis & Fracture Prevention with Calcium and Vitamin D

Fractures are no fun. Fractures are painful. Fractures keep you from doing what you want to do. 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. Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn cares for many Ashburn osteoporotic patients and recommends preventive measures like nutritional supplementation to deter osteoporotic fractures and keep our Ashburn chiropractic patients strong and in good shape.

SUPPLEMENTATION SAVES SUFFERING AND MONEY FOR FRACTURES

Your Ashburn chiropractor is quite aware that supplementing with calcium and vitamin D supports the health of bones and helps them be strong. This feeding and strengthening preferably 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 some startling facts:

(A) more than 500,000 fractures a year in the EU and 300,000 in the US could be avoided if every osteoporotic adult in the EU and US took 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! Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn certainly urges backing this effort to save money and, more significantly, suffering by supplementing with calcium and vitamin D3.

THE PROPER TYPE OF SUPPLEMENT IS KEY

Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn is quite certain that if you are making the effort to take calcium and vitamin D, you want it to work. You want them to be absorbed as much as possible. That’s where the form of vitamin D you choose is important. Achieving and keeping adequate levels of vitamin D is also important for bone and general health. This is a problem for people around the world. Why? Absorption. Absorption may be hindered 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 successfully. The recommendation in this recent 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) Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn sees this as important.
