“We Want Calcium! We Want Calcium!”
Music to your Fort Wayne chiropractor’s ear!
Fort Wayne Chiropractic Radiological Center’s response: “Yes, you do!”
Because calcium is a key building block of bone and bone mass along with Vitamin D and other nutrients, it is crucial to supply your bones the nutrients they need to be robust and healthy over the course of a lifetime! Building bone mass is very important and must begin while we are young, particularly in the growing adolescent years. (1) Certain bone diseases such as Osteoporosis are common among the elderly because we are more likely to lose half our bone mass as we age. Fort Wayne Chiropractic Radiological Center encourages our young patients to build a strong bone mass while they are young which will allow them to lose half of it without experiencing the painful osteoporosis side effects such as fracture. Regardless of your age and/or osteoporosis stage, Fort Wayne Chiropractic Radiological Center wants to provide you with information about calcium supplementation that can help you treat as well as prevent osteoporosis and its related problems.
Diet recommendations for osteoporosis prevention and treatment are valuable and demand careful implementation. Osteoporosis is a familiar disease among the elderly, especially postmenopausal women. Calcium supplementation is effective in decreasing the occurrence of osteoporosis. Your Fort Wayne chiropractor is educated in the administration of calcium supplementation as well as the other elements working with calcium to maximize your health response. Use Fort Wayne Chiropractic Radiological Center’s osteoporosis and nutritional expertise for your treatment.
What are the various calcium sources that doctors recommend? There are a lot of different calcium sources out there which include: milk, chews, and supplements. We want you to get calcium in any way you can, however, some sources are more suitable than others. Calcium supplementation has some advantages over other means like milk drink and milk chews by elevating calcium in the serum. (1) A good thing!
And what about “brand”? Fort Wayne Chiropractic Radiological Center often is asked if brand x is “ok” or not. Our best reply is to have you check the type of calcium. Calcium citrate is generally better absorbed than other types, but talk with us about your calcium supplement, whatever it may be. In our Fort Wayne chiropractic practice, we’re here for your nutritional needs and questions.
