Fractures are disruptive. Fractures are
painful. Fractures slow you down.
Fractures are pricey in terms of time, money and suffering. How can osteoporotic fractures
be averted? Calcium and vitamin D supplementation for those who
have osteoporosis. Executive Chiropractic of Iowa treats many West Des Moines
osteoporotic patients and endorses preventive measures like
nutritional taking supplements to preempt
osteoporotic fractures and keep our West Des Moines chiropractic patients
strong and healthy.
SUPPLEMENTATION SAVES SUFFERING AND MONEY FOR FRACTURES
Your West Des Moines 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 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 shares
a couple startling facts:
(A) more than 500,000 fractures a year in the European
Union 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 enormous numbers!
Executive Chiropractic of Iowa 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
Executive Chiropractic of Iowa is very confident
that if you are going to make the effort to supplement
with calcium and vitamin D, you want it to be effective. You
want them to be absorbed as much as possible. That is
where the form of vitamin D you take 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 trapped in the adipose tissue, in diseases that are known
for reduced intestinal absorption, and with some neurological
diseases that require special drugs that prompt 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 higher rate of intestinal absorption. (2) Executive Chiropractic of Iowa knows
this is important.
