Watertown Osteoporosis & Fracture Prevention with Calcium and Vitamin D

Fractures are disruptive. Fractures hurt. Fractures slow you down. 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 who have osteoporosis. Watertown Wellness Center sees many Watertown osteoporotic patients and endorses preventive measures like nutritional taking supplements to preempt osteoporotic fractures and keep our Watertown chiropractic patients strong and healthy.

SUPPLEMENTATION SAVES SUFFERING AND MONEY FOR FRACTURES

Your Watertown chiropractor realizes that supplementing with calcium and vitamin D feeds the 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 reveals a some startling statistics:

(A) greater than 500,000 fractures a year in the EU and 300,000 in the US could be avoided if every adult with osteoporosis 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 big figures! Watertown Wellness Center surely encourages 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

Watertown Wellness Center is very confident 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 type of vitamin D you choose is important. Attaining and keeping proper 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 need special drugs that predispose the person’s system to not synthesize the calcifediol well. 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 higher rate of intestinal absorption.
