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 making 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.
