Calcium & Vitamin D Prevents Fractures in Older Adults

April 15, 2010

Lower your risk of bone fractures by making sure you’re getting enough calcium and vitamin D. A pooled analysis of 68,500 patients from seven major vitamin D fracture trials in the U.S. and Europe determined that daily calcium and vitamin D supplements were effective in reducing fractures in older adults. According to the authors, “calcium and vitamin D given together reduce hip fractures and total fractures, and probably vertebral fractures, irrespective of age, sex, or previous fractures.”

Anyone over the age of 45 will want to be talk to their doctor of chiropractic regarding taking these supplements daily to help protect against the risk of fractures.

    Of course there are other factors involved in bone quality, such as: cortisol levels, digestion via hydrochloric acid and progesterone/estrogen balance.

    Bottom line is: bone quality is more than just calcium & vitamin D.
