Fractures are disruptive. Fractures are
painful. Fractures slow you down.
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. Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre treats many Toronto
osteoporotic patients and endorses preventive measures like
nutritional supplementation to preempt
osteoporotic fractures and keep our Toronto chiropractic patients
strong and healthy.
SUPPLEMENTATION SAVES SUFFERING AND MONEY FOR FRACTURES
Your Toronto chiropractor is
quite aware 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 of value. A recent
study of osteoporosis patients in the European Union and the United States reveals
a couple startling facts:
(A) greater than 500,000 fractures a year in the European
Union and 300,000 in the United States could be prevented
if every adult with osteoporosis in the EU and US used
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 enormous figures!
Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre surely urges backing this effort to save money and, more significantly,
suffering by supplementing with calcium and vitamin D3.
THE PROPER TYPE OF SUPPLEMENT IS KEY
Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre is very 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 form of vitamin D you take is important. Achieving
and keeping adequate 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 prompt the
person’s system to not synthesize the calcifediol well.
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) Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre sees this as important.
