Are your Vitamin D needs being met ?Are your vitamin D needs being met?

It may be the most talked about vitamin in years. Articles about vitamin D have appeared in so many national publications, it’s hard to keep track.

It is found in some foods, and it is produced naturally by the body when skin is exposed to sunlight.

So you may be asking … Why the hype about vitamin D ?

Recent research has shown that most people do not get enough vitamin D – 2,000 International Units (IU) daily are now recommended – and most likely, people don’t even know they’re not getting enough. So, why do you care if you’re getting enough, or not?

  • Vitamin D is known for helping the body absorb calcium for strong bones and teeth. Are strong bones important to you?

  • Vitamin D also supports breast, colon, and immune system health. Are any of these a priority to you?

The NUTRILITE® brand can fill in your vitamin D gap with NUTRILITE Vitamin D3 2000 IU plus vitamin K2.  It’s packed with 2,000 IU of vitamin D, so you’re getting the naturally occurring form of vitamin D that your body produces when exposed to sunlight – in an amount that is equal to twenty 8-oz. glasses of milk. And that is good news you can use.

Protect all 206 of your bones so they can offer you strong support.

Bones are constantly being renewed and can grow stronger with a good diet and weight-bearing exercise. You make time for your outer     appearance, but make sure your inner support system is taken care of so that you’ll be on the move for years to come:

  • Stick with a diet to feed your bones. Eat plenty of fruits and vegetables and low-fat dairy.
  • Get enough calcium, vitamin D, magnesium, and vitamin K/K2.
  • Keep moving against gravity. Examples include: running, brisk walking, weightlifting, and jump roping.
  • Maintain a healthy weight. Being underweight can raise the risk of fracture and bone loss.
  • Quit smoking. Smoking can reduce bone mass and may increase your risks for a broken bone.
  • Limit alcohol use. Large amounts can reduce bone mass and may increase your risks for a broken bone.

To help you in your quest for a full, active lifestyle, the NUTRILITE® brand has a family of bone health products to help you fill in your calcium, vitamin D, magnesium, and vitamin K/K2 nutritional gaps. These products include:

Resistance training does more than build muscle – it strengthens your bones.

Are your Vitamin D needs being met ?By Sean Foy, M.A.

Resistance training forces your body to work harder at resisting gravity by using weights, resistance bands, machines, or your body weight – think push-ups, dumbbell curls, leg presses, and squats.

Most people think of resistance training as a way to add muscle, which can be true, but it is also essential to bone health. Regular exercise in general can help limit bone loss, but resistance training can actually help you build and regain bone mineral density. When you ask your bones to work hard, they respond by becoming stronger and denser!

Talk to your doctor about specific weight-bearing exercises that would benefit you and your specific body type the most. Aim to incorporate resistance training into your health routine two to three times per week. Start slow and gradually build up the number of repetitions you can do, increasing weight and reps as you feel yourself – and your bones – getting stronger with Vitamin D.
