“We Want Calcium! We Want Calcium!”
Music to your Toronto chiropractor’s ear!
Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre’s response: “Yes, you do!”
Because calcium is a key building block of bone and bone mass along with Vitamin D and other nutrients, it is imperative to feed your bones the nutrients necessary to be strong and healthy over the course of a lifetime! Building bone mass is extremely important and must start while we are young, particularly in the growing adolescent years. (1) Certain bone diseases such as Osteoporosis are common among the elderly because we are more likely to lose half our bone mass as we get older. Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre encourages our young patients to build a strong bone mass while they are young which will allow them to lose half of it without suffering osteoporosis side effects such as fracture. Regardless of your age and/or osteoporosis stage, Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre wants to provide you with information about calcium supplementation that can help you treat as well as prevent osteoporosis and its related problems.
Diet recommendations for osteoporosis prevention and treatment are valuable and demand careful implementation. Osteoporosis is a common disease among the elderly, especially postmenopausal women. Calcium supplementation is effective in decreasing the occurrence of osteoporosis. Your Toronto chiropractor is educated in the administration of calcium supplementation as well as the other elements working with calcium to maximize your health response. Use Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre’s osteoporosis and nutritional expertise for your treatment.
What are the various calcium sources that doctors prescribe? There are a lot of different calcium sources out there which include: milk, chews, and supplements. We want you to get calcium in any way you can, however, some sources are more suitable than others. Calcium supplementation has some advantages over other means like milk drink and milk chews by elevating calcium in the serum. (1) A good thing!
And what about “brand”? Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre often is asked if brand x is “ok” or not. Our best reply is to have you check the type of calcium. Calcium citrate is generally better absorbed than other types, but talk with us about your calcium supplement, whatever it may be. In our Toronto chiropractic practice, we’re here for your nutritional needs and questions.
