Keeping our bones and muscles strong and healthy is vital for all of us, so it’s important to look after them now. A healthy balanced diet and active lifestyle will help you build healthy muscles and bones from an early age and maintain them throughout your life.
Vitamin D and Calcium are essential vitamins and minerals to support normal bones and muscles. Vitamin D also contributes to the normal absorption and utilisation of calcium – making them the perfect pair for healthy bones.
Vitamin D is widely known as the ‘sunshine vitamin’ or ‘sun vitamin’, this is because our bodies create Vitamin D from direct sunlight on the skin. You may find yourself in need of more during the winter especially in the UK, or if you are in a high risk group, so taking a Vitamin D Supplement could help. As a deficiency in this essential vitamin can lead in some cases to rickets and other bone deformities.
