Fractures are no fun. 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. Hollstrom & Associates Inc sees many Largo
osteoporotic patients and recommends preventive measures like
nutritional taking supplements to deter
osteoporotic fractures and keep our Largo chiropractic patients
strong and in good shape.
SUPPLEMENTATION SAVES SUFFERING AND MONEY FOR FRACTURES
Your Largo chiropractor knows well 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 new
study of osteoporosis patients in the European Union and the United States shares
a couple amazing statistics:
(A) more than 500,000 fractures a year in the EU 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) €5.7 billion in the EU and $3.3 billion in the US could be saved. (1)
Those are some huge numbers!
Hollstrom & Associates Inc 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
Hollstrom & Associates Inc 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 them to be absorbed as much as possible. That is
where the form of vitamin D you take is important. Attaining
and keeping adequate 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 recognized
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 greater rate of intestinal absorption. (2) Hollstrom & Associates Inc recognizes the importance of good
