You’ve probably heard that people shrink as they get older, which is true. Many people suffer from rickets, a vitamin D deficiency that causes bowed legs and a hunched body. You can take all the calcium you want, but unless you get vitamin D from sunlight, the calcium will not get into your bones. Sunlight can prevent and even reverse osteoporosis and rickets.*
Get outside and get some sun today! Enjoy outdoor activities like picnics, games, sports, a hike or just take a walk around your neighborhood. Your health depends on it!
Express your love today!
