The first step to proper nutrition is eating a balanced, healthy, whole foods diet. Fruits and vegetables are the best things to add to your diet. Supplements can be used as a last resort if you cannot do this.
Good bone health starts with calcium. You must also have a good amount of vitamin D in order to absorb calcium. You can get out in the sun, take a supplement or eat a fortified food. Getting Vitamin D from these sources will make sure your calcium is absorbed.
Of all the sources of vitamin D, sunlight and cow’s milk are very high in potency and easily absorbed. If you are not a big milk drinker or do not spend a lot of time in the sun, you should take a supplement with vitamin D. This vitamin can help protect bones and keep them strong.
Riboflavin, or Vitamin B2 is found in many dairy products, green beans, popcorn, asparagus, and bananas. Scaly skin and cracked lips can occur if you have a vitamin B2 deficiency, and your red blood cell count can also decrease. This important vitamin can reduce the risk of cancer, cataracts and anemia.
Vitamin A is important since it’s an antioxidant that boost immune function and slows down skin aging. However it is toxic in high amounts, so make sure you only take the daily recommended dose of 2,300 IU (International Units). Carrots, squash, and dark leafy greens are great sources of Vitamin A.
Take several children gummies if you are older. Adults need to take more vitamins than kids, so when you take one it won’t be enough. However, be careful that you do not take too many, as that can also be bad.
Tomorrow should be a great day if you consume the right amount of vitamins. Now you just have to make a plan on how you can take these nutrients in. The sooner you do what it takes, the sooner you will feel better, so get going now.
