Oxford Osteoporosis & Fracture Prevention with Calcium and Vitamin D

Fractures are disruptive. Fractures are painful. Fractures keep you from doing what you want to do. Fractures are pricey in not only in terms of money but also time and suffering. How can osteoporotic fractures be averted? Calcium and vitamin D supplementation for those with osteoporosis. Satterwhite Chiropractic sees many Oxford osteoporotic patients and endorses preventive measures like nutritional taking supplements to preempt osteoporotic fractures and keep our Oxford chiropractic patients strong and in good shape.

SUPPLEMENTATION SAVES SUFFERING AND MONEY FOR FRACTURES

Your Oxford 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 recent study of osteoporosis patients in the European Union and the United States lists a couple amazing pieces of data:

(A) greater than 500,000 fractures a year in the European Union and 300,000 in the United States could be prevented if every osteoporotic adult in the EU and US took 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 enormous numbers! Satterwhite Chiropractic surely urges support of this effort to save money and, more significantly, suffering by supplementing with calcium and vitamin D3.

THE PROPER TYPE OF SUPPLEMENT IS KEY

Satterwhite Chiropractic is very confident that if you are going to make the effort to supplement with calcium and vitamin D, you want it to work. You want the nutrients to be absorbed as much as possible. That is where the type of vitamin D you take is important. Attaining and maintaining adequate levels of vitamin D is also key for bone and general health. This is an issue for people everywhere. Why? Absorption. Absorption may be slowed in conditions like obesity in which nutrients get trapped in the adipose tissue, in diseases that are recognized for reduced intestinal absorption, and with some neurological diseases that require special drugs that prompt the person’s system to not synthesize the calcifediol successfully. 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.
