I read somewhere, being in the 40s is important to maintain healthy bones to avoid osteoporosis. My last bone density test was 5 years ago. At the age of 41 years old. At that time, I was advised by the Doctor to drink more milk or at least start to add calcium and vitamin D to my daily diet. Well, I was busy working to care for that! Yes! neglected my health to earn money for my surviving sake. I never thought my ignorant took a toll on my health really bad.
Not sure whether you are aware of this fact, to maintain bone density, one must consume 1,000 to 1,200 mg of calcium daily along with vitamin D and make exercise part of daily habit.
Back to my experience, who are now in the 46 and going to be 47 years old this year. I am blessed with a youthful look but believe, it's not a complete package. My body is as perfect as a 60 years old woman, minus menopause. My gene is blessed with late menopause too. What is it like to live as a 60 years old woman body with a 30 years old look?
I am so confused. So does people around me. I thought, I am young and act like one. But there is certain movement, make me feels worst than an old woman. Climbing up and down the staircase was a heavy task. Not able to jump like any other people my age. I can't even do hiking like those days. My movement is so limited. So sad! Anyway......
At least my knee pain has been progressing well with no pain for 2 years now. I can bend it better now but far from squatting down. I couldn't jump or run or bend my knee since I was 39 years old. I was diagnosed with osteoarthritis back then. I met with 3 specialists for my knee and joint pain. All three thought, I am an athlete. Not even athletic. I use to hate sweating. Duh!!! Obviously, regret it now too.
Lack of Vitamin D and Calcium too will affect your back too.
In late May, I fall down ant my back was badly affected. I can't sit for more than 10 minutes. Very difficult to bend down and hurt even lying down on the bed. It was a stressful 2 months for me. I am still trying to recover. Thank God! I am getting better day by day. Really glad about my biggest decision ever to just focus on the treatment. I really see it progressing really well.
I have adopted a healthy lifestyle a long time ago but only recently did it in the right way now. After all these years, finally admitted my method has been proven wrong. WTH!
Anyway, at least still alive to repent, right?
As the mid-40s going to be late 40s really soon, I am now trying my best to take good nutrition as a supplement on top of a daily not so well balanced diet. I am blessed with so far a good immune system until now. I am maintaining it well with Mead Johnson Provital Immuna Plus 2 doses in my daily diet.
For those who haven't heard about Provital Immuna Plus. This is a skim milk powder for age 40+ people.
* It's high in calcium, Vitamin D, magnesium which is essential nutrients requirement for 40+ years old people to maintain mobility.
* Pack with protein which helps to build and repair body tissues
* Contains Yeast Beta-Glucan, Selenium and Vitamin C to support the immune system
💔 Yeast Beta Glucan - helps to support the immune system associated with colds. The amount of serving recommended for the effect is 0.2g a day.
💔 Selenium - an antioxidant found in almost all immune cells types
💔 Vitamin C - enhances absorption of iron from food.
It tastes just light as any other skim milk you have ever drunk before. It's a creamy but light taste of milk and not so sweet at all. It tastes delicious to my palate though. I can finish a cup and craving for more. I am glad they recommended 2 doses a day for me to enjoy.
If you are 40+ years old people like me, it is better to take extra care of your health by adding some good nutrition to your daily diet. Protect and maintain a good immune system is vital at our golden years time.
