We’re well into the new year and about the time that people begin to forget about those resolutions they set last month. I want to make sure you and I both are still working towards those goals… which, for me, includes being more active. Being active can mean many things, from small daily changes to taking big leaps. Learn more with me and the #BeActiv with Viactiv® campaign.
#BeActiv with Viactiv
Personally, the easiest way I find to stay active is by walking. It doesn’t require any special clothes. No tools. No money. Once you have a comfortable pair of walking shoes, maybe a good friend by your side, and a nice place to walk, you are good to go. Colby and I have a beautiful scenic lake rail near our house that we enjoy walking. The girls can ride their bikes and we can keep up with a nice, brisk walk. It makes staying active easy and gets the whole family involved.
Another simple way to make sure I can stay active for a while is to make sure I get my daily calcium. Since I recently discovered I have a lactose allergy, this can be challenging some days. By just taking two Viactiv Calcium Soft Chews a day, I know that my body is receiving 100% of the daily value of calcium (for most women) plus vitamins D & K. Not to mention, Viactiv is part of the three keys to healthy bones:
- Obtaining an adequate daily dose of calcium from your diet
- Regular bone strengthening exercises
- Supplementing when diet is not enough
If your body is not getting enough calcium (check this chart to determine if you’re getting enough), it begins to take it from the bones and decreases bone mineral density. This can eventually lead to osteopenia and osteoporosis. Not to mention, calcium also plays an important role in strengthening bones and teeth, as well as helping muscles (including the heart) and nerves function properly. I want to stay active and be healthy so that I can see my children grow up… and enjoy my grandchildren one day FAR into the future. These reasons enough keep me motivated. Viactiv simply makes it easier to maintain that lifestyle.
Have a teenage daughter that needs to get more calcium into her diet? Made for any age, Viactiv Gummies come in assorted tropical strawberry, peach-mango and pineapple fruit flavors in each bottle. Also, an increase in Vitamin D found in Viactiv Gummies further supports the absorption of calcium into the body. They are a perfect alternative to the Soft Chews for the younger ladies in your home.
