Groton Osteoporosis & Fracture Prevention with Calcium and Vitamin D

Fractures are no fun. Fractures are painful. Fractures slow you down. Fractures are pricey in not only in terms of money but also time and suffering. How can osteoporotic fractures be prevented? Calcium and vitamin D supplementation for those with osteoporosis. Hutter Chiropractic Office sees many Groton osteoporotic patients and endorses preventive measures like nutritional supplementation to preempt osteoporotic fractures and keep our Groton chiropractic patients strong and fit.

SUPPLEMENTATION SAVES SUFFERING AND MONEY FOR FRACTURES

Your Groton chiropractor is quite aware that supplementing with calcium and vitamin D supports the health of bones and helps them be strong. This feeding and strengthening preferably should begin 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 some startling facts:

(A) greater than 500,000 fractures a year in the European Union and 300,000 in the US could be prevented 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 big figures! Hutter Chiropractic Office certainly urges backing this effort to save money and, more importantly, suffering by supplementing with calcium and vitamin D3.

THE PROPER TYPE OF SUPPLEMENT IS KEY

Hutter Chiropractic Office is quite 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. Achieving and keeping adequate levels of vitamin D is also key for bone and general health. This is a problem for people everywhere. 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 predispose 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.
