Fractures are disruptive. Fractures are
painful. Fractures keep you from doing what you want to do.
Fractures are pricey in terms of time, money and suffering. How can osteoporotic fractures
be prevented? Calcium and vitamin D supplementation for those with osteoporosis. Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. treats many Auburn
osteoporotic patients and recommends preventive measures like
nutritional taking supplements to preempt
osteoporotic fractures and keep our Auburn chiropractic patients
strong and in good shape.
SUPPLEMENTATION SAVES SUFFERING AND MONEY FOR FRACTURES
Your Auburn chiropractor realizes that supplementing with calcium and vitamin D feeds the bones and helps them be strong. This feeding and
strengthening ideally should start 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 shares
a some startling facts:
(A) greater than 500,000 fractures a year in the EU 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) lots of money could be saved: €5.7 billion in the EU and $3.3 billion in
the US. (1)
Those are some big figures!
Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. 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
Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. is quite confident
that if you are making the effort to supplement
with calcium and vitamin D, you want it to work. You
want them to be absorbed as much as possible. That is
where the type of vitamin D you choose is important. Achieving
and keeping proper levels of vitamin D is also
key 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 known
for decreased intestinal absorption, and with some neurological
diseases that need special drugs that predispose the
person’s system to not synthesize the calcifediol successfully.
The recommendation in this recent research paper is to take
oral calcifediol (vitamin D3) as it is three to five times more powerful and
has a greater rate of intestinal absorption. (2) Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. sees this as important.
