Have you heard about the “secret menus” at places, with items like “Animal Style” burgers or fries, or special coffee drinks, or shakes, that you can order and tell your friends about as your latest find? Everyone likes being in the know. You know what else we like? Staying healthy!
At the Got Vitamin B12 Happy Hour, you can also ask for a Vitamin D shot. Healthy Vitamin D levels are important for normal bone development and maintenance. Vitamin D is linked with calcium absorption. If your Vitamin D levels are low, your calcium absorption will suffer. According to the National Institutes of Health Osteoporosis and Related Bone Diseases National Research Center, more than 40 million adults in the U.S. are at risk for or have osteoporosis.
For all of us, healthy Vitamin D levels are vital for maintaining bone health, supporting neuromuscular and immune function, as well as reducing inflammation — for our good health overall. At an annual physical, you can ask to have your Vitamin D levels checked, as well as your Vitamin B12 levels. With many of us protecting our skin from too much sun exposure because of the risk of skin cancer, and with limited time outside — due to longer commutes, modern lifestyles, work schedule — you might not be getting enough daily Vitamin D from sun exposure.
Sunshine through the car window or office window doesn’t count. We absorb ultraviolet-B (UVB) from sun exposure on our skin. This is why Vitamin D is also called the “Sunshine Vitamin.” Recent studies have also shown Vitamin D as very effective in fighting the flu virus and that those with low Vitamin D levels were more likely to become sick during the flu season. Protect your bones — and your health! — with the Got Vitamin B12 “secret menu” item of injectable Vitamin D.
Enjoy a nice walk outside, and see you soon!
All the best,
Got Vitamin B12 Team
