How Do You Keep Your Bones Strong?

February is historically my least favorite month of the year. It's cold, I have no interest in exercising, and all I want to do is curl up in bed and hibernate. Living in Washington over the last couple of years, that tendency has only increased. The lack of sunlight really got to me, and since I was studying nutrition, I realized I needed to pay more attention to supplementing my diet in the winter. Wellesse Calcium and Vitamin D3 Liquid has been an important addition because it contains three ingredients that are so integral to bone health: calcium, vitamin D3, and magnesium. As a 30 year old woman, maintaining strong bone health is very important to me, but I also know that it's important for men as well. So I asked my boyfriend to test it out and see what he thought. Like me, he's very in tune what what he puts into his body and can usually tell what feels right, so I thought it would be good to hear from a male perspective. Here's what he had to say:

December was dark and cold for me, much like any typical beginning to a winter season. However, this was my first winter experience in eighteen months, as I had been in Hawaii last year. Although it was filled with holiday cheer, it was also a month of stressful traveling, as Iris and I moved about from Seattle to Los Angeles to Massachusetts to New York.

Iris and I had decided to begin a new adventure, which will eventually lead us to Missouri to study permaculture and hopefully learn to live a simpler life. In truth, it will probably not be as simple as it may sound. This particular journey has not been without its fair share of bumps in the road. Nutrition, for example, tends to take a backseat to all the other priorities. When Iris approached me with the idea of trying out the Wellesse products, I turned to the fast absorbing Calcium and Vitamin D3 Liquid.

For the past two weeks, I've taken a daily dose of the orange flavored supplement, and almost immediately I noticed an effect. My body needs the sun to stay in good spirits, as my mood and overall health have always benefitted from Apollo's glorious rays. Being in Hawaii last winter, I had no need for vitamin D supplementation, but this year has been quite different. I personally don't believe that vitamins are necessary all the time. That being said, I know there are certain situations when our bodies need the extra boost. A cold winter in the northern hemisphere is one of them.

Once I began taking the Wellesse Calcium and Vitamin D3 Liquid, my mood improved. It felt to me as if I'd been spending time out in the sun. This particular supplement was my favorite flavor of all the Wellesse products I tried, but also seemed to be the most beneficial for me. I'm used to spending a lot of time outside in the garden over the summer, so I needed a quick boost to help my mood and keep me healthy through to the sunny spring months. I will definitely continue taking this supplement throughout the winter.

So there you have it. He's a very picky guy (no offense, honey!) so an endorsement from him means something to me.
