Manchester Osteoporosis & Fracture Prevention with Calcium and Vitamin D

Fractures are disruptive. Fractures hurt. 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 prevented? Calcium and vitamin D supplementation for those who have osteoporosis. Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries sees many Manchester osteoporotic patients and recommends preventive measures like nutritional taking supplements to deter osteoporotic fractures and keep our Manchester chiropractic patients strong and fit.

SUPPLEMENTATION SAVES SUFFERING AND MONEY FOR FRACTURES

Your Manchester 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 ideally should begin in the teen years, but supplementing at any age is of value. A recent study of osteoporosis patients in the European Union and the United States shares a couple amazing 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 figures! Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries surely encourages 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

Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries is quite confident that if you are making the effort to take calcium and vitamin D, you want it to be effective. You want them to be absorbed as much as possible. That is where the type of vitamin D you take is important. Attaining and keeping proper levels of vitamin D is also important for bone and general health. This is an issue for people everywhere. Why? Absorption. Absorption may be slowed in conditions like obesity in which nutrients get trapped in the adipose tissue, in diseases that are recognized for reduced intestinal absorption, and with some neurological diseases that need special drugs that predispose the person’s system to not synthesize the calcifediol effectively. 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.
