Eugene Osteoporosis & Fracture Prevention with Calcium and Vitamin D

Fractures are no fun. Fractures hurt. Fractures slow you down. Fractures are costly 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 who have osteoporosis. Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic treats many Eugene osteoporotic patients and endorses preventive measures like nutritional supplementation to deter osteoporotic fractures and keep our Eugene chiropractic patients strong and fit.

SUPPLEMENTATION SAVES SUFFERING AND MONEY FOR FRACTURES

Your Eugene chiropractor knows well that supplementing with calcium and vitamin D feeds the 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 some amazing statistics:

(A) greater than 500,000 fractures a year in the EU and 300,000 in the US could be avoided 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! Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic certainly 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

Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic is quite 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’s where the type of vitamin D you take is important. Attaining and keeping proper 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 known for decreased 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 new 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.
