Embracing a Healthy Family: Caltrate's New Calcium + Vitamin D

Caltrate's New Calcium + Vitamin D



I'm a big advocate of vitamin D and the importance for our bodies.  I make sure my children go outside every day, weather permitting, to soak up those rays.  I've read too many research studies on the possible ramifications of not getting enough vitamin D in both adults and children.  I found out that Caltrate has a new calcium product with vitamin D.  I have bought Caltrate for my father in the past and this is good news for him. The problem with increase sunlight is the attempts we go to to shield ourselves from the rays thus blocking that important vitamin D.

Since many of us use sunscreen and hats, it prevents that absorption of the ultraviolet (UV) rays which also includes vitamin D.  "Leading experts believe up to 77 percent of Americans have insufficient levels of vitamin D, thus increasing their risk for falls and fractures.
Four things you need to know:
  1. The primary source for vitamin D is direct exposure to sunlight. 
  2. As the body ages, it becomes less efficient at producing Vitamin D from the sun.
  3. Rather than increasing sun exposure, the American Academy of Dermatology recommends people obtain vitamin D through adequate diet or supplements.
  4. Caltrate now has double the amount of vitamin D, making it the most vitamin D rich supplement available.
