Toronto Osteoporosis & Fracture Prevention with Calcium and Vitamin D

Fractures are disruptive. Fractures are painful. Fractures slow you down. Fractures are pricey 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 taking supplements 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 beneficial. 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 require 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.
