Fracture Healing

Brad Farra - Saturday, October 10, 2009


I'm posting this in response to a recent question.

When you have fractured a bone it's important to follow the rehab. instructions of your physician and physical therapist. There are things you can to to ensure an optimal healing process. Be sure to have top notch nutrition during the healing process. A well balanced diet with plenty of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and healthy sources of fats and protein. Be sure you are getting in enough dietary protein as your body will consume more as the fracture is healing. Supplements that can ensure optimal healing time include a multi-vitamin and or calcium, vitamin D., phosphorus, zinc, and magnesium to achieve 100% RDA levels. A supplement called microcrystalline hydroxyapatite is a good way to get many of these nutrients.
