Bone Fractures - Facts
Although, bone fracture may occur at any part of the body, the common among them are vertebral or spinal fractures. Some other types of fracture include fractures in the Hip, Wrist, Ankle, Hummers and Rib. Chances of bone fracture increases with aging, leading to osteoporosis in the later stages of life. 90% of hip fractures occur due to Osteoporosis. Moreover, the rate of death in case of such fractures in the first year is quite high; about 5% to 20%. About 99% of the Calcium in the human body are stored in our bones and teeth. Completely water soluble and absorbable calcium salts like Calcium Lactate, Calcium Citrate, Calcium Malate, Calcium Gluconate and Calcium Acetate would work better instead of water insoluble compounds like Calcium Carbonate or Phosphate. A recent study with Calcium Carbonate, demonstrated how Calcium Carbonate failed to reduce bone fractures.
