Fractures are no fun. Fractures hurt. Fractures slow you down.
Fractures are pricey in terms of time, money and suffering. How can osteoporotic fractures
be averted? Calcium and vitamin D supplementation for those who
have osteoporosis. Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC cares for many La Grande
osteoporotic patients and endorses preventive measures like
nutritional supplementation to deter
osteoporotic fractures and keep our La Grande chiropractic patients
strong and fit.
SUPPLEMENTATION SAVES SUFFERING AND MONEY FOR FRACTURES
Your La Grande chiropractor is
quite aware 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 of value. A new
study of osteoporosis patients in the European Union and the United States shares
a some amazing pieces of data:
(A) more than 500,000 fractures a year in the EU and 300,000 in the United States 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!
Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC 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
Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC is quite certain
that if you are going to make 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 take is important. Achieving
and maintaining 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 require special drugs that prompt the
person’s system to not synthesize the calcifediol effectively.
The recommendation in this new research paper is to use
oral calcifediol (vitamin D3) as it is three to five times more powerful and
has a higher rate of intestinal absorption. (2) Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC recognizes the importance of good
