Fractures are no fun. Fractures are
painful. Fractures keep you from doing what you want to do.
Fractures are pricey in terms of time, money and suffering. How can osteoporotic fractures
be averted? Calcium and vitamin D supplementation for those with osteoporosis. Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic cares for many Montreal
osteoporotic patients and endorses preventive measures like
nutritional supplementation to deter
osteoporotic fractures and keep our Montreal chiropractic patients
strong and fit.
SUPPLEMENTATION SAVES SUFFERING AND MONEY FOR FRACTURES
Your Montreal 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 start 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 shares
a couple amazing statistics:
(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 big figures!
Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic certainly 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
Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic is very certain
that if you are making the effort to supplement
with calcium and vitamin D, you want it to be effective. You
want the nutrients to be absorbed as much as possible. That is
where the form of vitamin D you choose is important. Attaining
and maintaining proper 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 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 use
oral calcifediol (vitamin D3) as it is three to five times more powerful and
has a higher rate of intestinal absorption. (2) Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic sees this as important.
