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. (2) Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries knows
this is important.
