For Strong Bones, Strong Mind
When it comes to strong bones, good immunity and a healthy mind, this is the dynamic duo you need to add to your day.
No matter how carefully you eat, you almost certainly need more of this combo. Vitamin D helps move calcium you get from foods and supplements from your digestive tract into your bloodstream. Then Vitamin K transports it to your bones where it belongs. But these nutrients do a lot more than that, as you will see below.
Do you need them? Almost certainly! Vitamin D is so difficult to get naturally from foods that the USDA has encouraged producers to add it to milk since the 1930s. Even now 40-75% of adults come up short.
As for Vitamin K—are you eating at least a cup of dark, leafy, greens per day? That’s your best source.
