Men's Health Month
June is Men's Health Month and this is the perfect time to encourage the man in your life to enhance his health and well-being. Proper nutrition is not only key for optimal health, but it also helps increase strength, energy, and stamina, helping to ensure that your man is healthy and strong for many years to come.
In celebration of Men's Health Month and Father's Day, I am giving a power nutrition tip essential for men but equally important to women.
Power Tip For The Month
Vitamin D also known as the sunshine vitamin, is important especially as men age. Vitamin D plays an essential role in absorption as well as building and maintaining strong bones. A lack of vitamin D is linked to an increase in osteoporosis and bone fractures. Vitamin D is also linked to an increase in testosterone levels.
Few foods contain vitamin D naturally. Because of this, some foods are fortified. This means that vitamin D has been added. Foods that contain vitamin D include:
orange juice (fortified)
It can be hard to get enough vitamin D each day through sun exposure and food alone, so taking vitamin D supplements can help.
