Strong bones with D-Protection Smoothie

Calcium absorption and bone growth are necessary for a healthy life, and Vitamin D is essential to promote them. Vitamin D plays an important role also for other functions of human body.

It works as a protection against many illnesses including cancer, type 1 diabetes, and multiple sclerosis.

Vitamin d2 or d3 fortified food have the significant role in preserving ordinary blood tiers of calcium and phosphorus. Including vitamin d in our diet helps the body absorb calcium, which forms and maintains all human bones. It is used on its own or together with calcium to improve bone health and reduce fractures.

Vitamin d intake comes mainly from two places: we take it into our bodies in meals and dietary supplements, and our bodies produce it after daylight exposure. Vitamin d is found indeed in some foods like fatty fish (for instance, cod liver oil) and egg yolks.

Not many natural products we normally include in our diet have it. Because of this, often we see D fortified food in shops.
We find Vitamin D in:

  • salmon
  • sardines
  • egg yolk
  • shrimp
  • milk (fortified)
  • cereal (fortified)
  • yogurt (fortified)
  • orange juice (fortified)

It can be difficult to intake enough vitamin D each day through sun exposure and food alone. Therefore vitamin D supplements often help.

To follow you can see the recommended IUs intake for vitamin D. IU is the International Unit used to measure vitamins and it differs depending on the vitamin we are measuring or anything else. In this particular case 1000 IU of Vitamin D equal to 25 mg. I have calculated the intakes:

  • children and teens: 600 IU ( 15 mg )
  • adults up to age 70: 600 IU ( 15 mg )
  • adults over 70 years old: 800 IU ( 20 mg )
  • pregnant or breastfeeding women: 600 IU ( 15 mg )

This creamy smoothie packs in nutritious ingredients and Vitamin D such as spinach, cereal, pineapple, celery and yogurt. 490 calories.
