Are You Getting Enough Calcium and Vitamin D?

Calcium and vitamin D are essential for strong, healthy bones—vitamin D is essential for optimum calcium absorption in the small intestine. Recommended calcium levels are 1000 mg per day, 1200 mg if you are over 50 years old. Take a vitamin D and calcium supplement if you don’t get enough of these nutrients from your diet.

Great sources of calcium include:

* Dairy products, which come already fortified with vitamin D.
* Dark green, leafy vegetables, such as kale and collard greens
* Dried beans and legumes

  1. Hello,

    I was just checking your site yesterday and trust me I really liked the way you have presented it. I was going through some of your article and I really found them interesting and informative. So I was just wondering if I can do something for your site. I am a content writer and I love writing articles on topic like finance, real estate, education, etc. What if I provide you with an unique article as a Guest Post or even you can publish with your name. I really don’t have an issue, after all its your website, its your hard work.

    The article will be rich in content and will be well presented to you. All I would like to ask for only one link in the article. I would not charge a penny to you for the article :)

    Please let me know if this sound good to you, so that I can start working on your article.

    Best Regards,
