Malverne Osteoporosis & Fracture Prevention with Calcium and Vitamin D

Fractures are disruptive. Fractures are painful. Fractures slow you down. Fractures are costly in terms of time, money and suffering. How can osteoporotic fractures be prevented? Calcium and vitamin D supplementation for those with osteoporosis. Malverne Health & Wellness treats many Malverne osteoporotic patients and endorses preventive measures like nutritional supplementation to deter osteoporotic fractures and keep our Malverne chiropractic patients strong and healthy.

SUPPLEMENTATION SAVES SUFFERING AND MONEY FOR FRACTURES

Your Malverne chiropractor knows well that supplementing with calcium and vitamin D feeds the bones and helps them be strong. This feeding and strengthening preferably should start in the teen years, but supplementing at any age is of value. A new study of osteoporosis patients in the European Union and the United States reveals a some startling facts:

(A) more than 500,000 fractures a year in the EU and 300,000 in the United States could be avoided if every osteoporotic adult in the EU and US used 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 numbers! Malverne Health & Wellness surely encourages backing this effort to save money and, more significantly, suffering by supplementing with calcium and vitamin D3.

THE PROPER TYPE OF SUPPLEMENT IS KEY

Malverne Health & Wellness is quite certain that if you are making the effort to take calcium and vitamin D, you want it to be effective. You want the nutrients to be absorbed as much as possible. That’s where the form of vitamin D you take is important. Attaining and keeping adequate 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 reduced intestinal absorption, and with some neurological diseases that need 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 greater rate of intestinal absorption. (2) Malverne Health & Wellness sees this as important.
