It'a osteoporosis awareness month.. a disease I honestly did not know a lot about. Upon some research I learned that it affects up to 55% of women over the age of 50. Yikes! It only makes sense to take preventative action.
I'm all about taking vitamins regularly (and eating as much of a balanced diet as possible). Having an autoimmune disease (and now keeping it in remission) I have found that its extremely important to make sure my body is getting all the vitamins and minerals that it requires to function best. This supports my immune system and helps to keep the balance that I need to feel good.
I am a huge, huge fan of Wellesse Liquid Vitamins. HUGE. If you have seen my previous smoothie and beverage recipes you already know how much I love their multi vitamin. Having Hashimotos I have to be cautious of my iodine intake and their multi is one of the ONLY ones I have found on the market that is free of iodine. Plus, all of their vitamins are certified gluten free (and almost all sugar free/stevia sweetened as well too!)
Upon learning about the prevalence of osteoporosis I figured it might be good to add some calcium to my diet..so naturally I tried the Wellesse Calcium & Vitamin D3 supplement. Its citrus flavored (and tastes really good!) I have been drinking it in this smoothie almost every day the last few weeks!
This smoothie is simple to throw together and refreshing! Bet you didn't know that taking vitamins could be a delicious experience :)
