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 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) Pflugerville Wellness Center recognizes the importance of good
