SUPPLEMENTATION SAVES SUFFERING AND MONEY FOR FRACTURES Your Fort Wayne chiropractor realizes 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 beneficial. A recent study of osteoporosis patients in the European Union and the United States shares a some amazing facts: (A) greater than 500,000 fractures a year in the European Union and 300,000 in the US could be avoided if every adult with osteoporosis in the EU and US used 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 huge figures! Cox Chiropractic Medicine INC surely urges backing this effort to save money and, more importantly, suffering by supplementing with calcium and vitamin D3. THE PROPER TYPE OF SUPPLEMENT IS KEY Cox Chiropractic Medicine INC is very confident that if you are making the effort to take calcium and vitamin D, you want it to be effective. You want them to be absorbed as much as possible. That is where the type of vitamin D you choose is important. Achieving and keeping adequate levels of vitamin D is also important for bone and general health. This is a problem for people around the world. 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 reduced intestinal absorption, and with some neurological diseases that require special drugs that predispose the person’s system to not synthesize the calcifediol successfully. 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.
