I Trust This Supplement To Support My Muscles & Bones As I Age
The choices you make today will determine your whole-body health down the road, so optimizing your diet, physical activity, sleep health, mental well-being, and other daily lifestyle habits is critical. You have to think about the next chapter and adapt accordingly during each life stage in order to fully promote longevity.
Why I'm thinking about muscle & bone longevity now.
There's some malleability in your health. If you begin investing in your well-being today by establishing healthy habits that build up your individual bank of longevity, you'll reap the benefits down the road.
When I imagine the type of life I want when I'm older, I know now is the time to invest in my bone and muscle longevity. As a woman in her 40s, I know that taking care of my musculoskeletal health is key for optimizing my mobility in the future.
Supporting these two critical tissues helps promote ease of movement, longevity, and quality of life for all but especially women. As a mother of young girls, I'm committed to improving my musculoskeletal health factors. I know the investments I'm making today are going to help me play with my kids' kids and get off the floor really easily when I'm 65, 75, and 85 years old.
Here are some habits I've adopted to support my musculoskeletal health and longevity:
Together, these fundamental steps are helping prepare me for the type of agility and ease I want in my mobility when I'm older. Most people already know that physical activity and protein support muscle and bone health, but vitamin D also has a critical role in maintaining musculoskeletal health (especially later in life).
How vitamin D promotes musculoskeletal health.
If you're fully invested in your whole-body health, you should definitely make sure you're getting enough vitamin D. Bone and muscle integrity, immune function, gut health, mood support, and even a healthy, happy sex life—you name a facet of well-being, and this essential nutrient is likely found to help regulate or enhance it.*
While those living in warmer climates or closer to the equator have consistently higher levels of vitamin D during certain parts of the year, sitting in the sun every day isn't a foolproof way to get enough D—especially when you factor in skin health concerns and best practices for sun safety.
Why I love vitamin D3 potency+
If you're seriously invested in your health, there are some supplements that will probably be on the journey with you forever. And unless you just happen to be in the magical range, vitamin D is likely going to be one of them.
I've done the necessary blood work to test my 25(OH)D levels (i.e., vitamin D status) before and after taking vitamin D3 potency+, and let me tell you: This formula works.
With the right dose, form, and buddy nutrients, mindbodygreen's formula helps you reach and maintain vitamin D sufficiency so you can optimize your muscle, bone, and whole-body health (now and in the future).*
