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 take 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.
