Middle-aged and older women are more likely to develop osteoporosis due to a rapid bone density decline in female hormones. And even the younger generation tends to have less bone density buffer due to lifestyle changes. Here I like to talk about the vitamin D deficiency and bone density.
Bones not only support the body but are also closely related to the functions of internal organs, such as the flexibility of blood vessels, the ability to lower blood sugar, and the work of the kidneys. From the beauty viewpoint, the bones in the face decrease, and it causes “sagging and wrinkles” and affects the “appearance impression.” Keeping your bones healthy is good for your body and appearance.
Calcium has a strong image of nutrients that are good for bones, but I recommend (1) vitamin D, (2) calcium, and (3) vitamin K in that order. Vitamin D deficiency and bone density have a strong relation. Calcium cannot be absorbed sufficiently into the bones with low vitamin D.
What foods contain vitamin D? Rich in fish and mushrooms. Cloud ear mushrooms, maitake mushrooms, and sun-dried shiitake mushrooms contain it richly. However, eating fish is overwhelmingly efficient. You should eat one piece of fish a day. It also helps prevent arteriosclerosis.
Vitamin D strengthens the bones and the immune system, strengthening muscles and preventing falls. I continue to take vitamin D and live with an awareness of “bone activity” and “immunity enhancement.”
I often make steamed salmon and mushrooms in foil. Sprinkle some soy sauce and sake on the raw salmon, put your favorite mushrooms and butter on top, cover with foil, and steam in a walnut frying pan for about 15 minutes. Add ponzu sauce if you like. It’s so easy and helpful!
You can also take vitamin D through supplements. Juveriente’s Bone Strength Complex will provide you vitamin D among its vitamin set for bone health while it also helps your bone health from the cellular level. (Learn about it more here.)
