Get your vitamin D3 levels tested. Proper amounts will help your body absorb the calcium you need and reduce your risk of disease.
Vitamin D3 may be calcium’s best friend. Without it, calcium has a really tough time being absorbed into your bones. Besides being essential for bone health, research suggests that vitamin D3 also helps slow the progression of arthritis, hypertension, kidney disease, atherosclerosis (a cause of heart disease and stroke), wrinkles, memory loss, and even impotence. It may also decrease the incidence of several cancers. Do yourself a favor and pop your D3 with healthy fats such as fish, olive oil and avocados. Or spend 10 minutes in the sun. Michael Roizen, MD, the chief wellness officer at the Cleveland Clinic, recommends that you start with 1,000 IU of supplemental vitamin D3 if you’re younger than 60 and 1,200 IU if you’re over 60. Then get your levels checked to make sure they fall into the desired range.
Anything that comforts the flesh weakens the spirit.
