Pflugerville 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. Pflugerville Wellness Center cares for many Pflugerville osteoporotic patients and endorses preventive measures like nutritional taking supplements to deter osteoporotic fractures and keep our Pflugerville chiropractic patients strong and in good shape.

SUPPLEMENTATION SAVES SUFFERING AND MONEY FOR FRACTURES

Your Pflugerville chiropractor realizes 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 beneficial. A new study of osteoporosis patients in the European Union and the United States shares a some startling pieces of data:

(A) more than 500,000 fractures a year in the EU and 300,000 in the US could be avoided if every osteoporotic adult 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! Pflugerville Wellness Center surely encourages backing this effort to save money and, more importantly, suffering by supplementing with calcium and vitamin D3.

THE PROPER TYPE OF SUPPLEMENT IS KEY

Pflugerville Wellness Center is very confident that if you are making the effort to supplement with 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 maintaining proper levels of vitamin D is also important for bone and general health. This is a problem for people everywhere. Why? Absorption. Absorption may be delayed 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 successfully. The recommendation in this new 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) Pflugerville Wellness Center recognizes the importance of good absorption.
