Vitamin D is necessary for the intestinal absorption of calcium that directly impacts bone health. It is very difficult to gain the adequate amount of vitamin D needed for healthy bones through food alone, for seniors and people who are vitamin D deficient. The main sources of vitamin D are sunlight, ultraviolet exposure, and dietary intake through food or supplements. According to Harvard Health Publishing Journal it is Time For More Vitamin D.
Studies have shown that only 10-15 minutes of daily sun exposure should provide a healthy person in their youth all of the vitamin D needed. However, if you are someone who requires more vitamin D, you can fortify your diet with the following foods:
- Canned Tuna
- Orange Juice
- Breakfast Cereals
If you are 50+ and suffer from osteoporosis your body could benefit from added bone support obtained from vitamin D. MetaFlora Probiotic Bone Health provides your body with three highly selected Lactobacillius strains that target bone health and is enriched with Vitamin D3. Lactobacillus. Lactobacillus is known to reduce bone loss for people who suffer from low bone density or osteorporosis.
