Celebrate National Vitamin Day with #VitaMelts
Did you know that January 29th is National Vitamin Day? I am sure not to many people know that. With all the specials days all year long it is hard to keep what day is for what, straight. But, National Vitamin Day is a very special day. No, it isn’t Christmas and there is no tree with presents, and it isn’t Thanksgiving and there is no table piled high with turkey and fixings, nor is it Valentine’s Day so you won’t find flowers and box of chocolates waiting for you. But, what you will find is me telling you all about my pledge to live healthier and helping you to pledge the same. As every day passes we all need to take time to think about the most important person in our life, which is you (me). Staying strong and healthy inside and out is the way we can help others because when we are healthy we set an example to those around us. When you glow, people ask you what you are doing, and they also want your glow. So, share your glow
Eating healthy, exercising, getting good sleep, and avoiding stress are all great ways to live healthy. All things I take great pride in doing. But, did you know that no matter how healthy and clean you think you might be eating, you still could be lacking important vitamins and minerals from your diet. Did you know that we need a certain amount of vitamins a day? Here is a breakdown of what ones body should have daily.
Calcium ~ Women under 50 need 1000 mg, and over 50 need 1500 mg.
Folic Acid ~ 400mcg for women, and 600 mcg for pregnant women.
Zinc ~ Adult males need about 11 mg of zinc per day and adult females need about 8 mg of zinc per day.
Omega 3 ~ 1000 mg ~ A combination of EPA (400) and DHA (300) and the rest from Omega 3
Vitamin B6 ~ 2 mg
Vitamin K ~ 90 mcg
Vitamin A ~ 5000 IU
Vitamin E ~ 30 IU
Vitamin D ~ 400 IU

It might be a bit overwhelming, but when you eat a healthy balanced diet and ad in some great vitamins like Nature Made VitaMelts you will be right where you need to be.
Have you seen or tried the VitaMelts yet? One of the great things about these vitamins is that you don’t even feel like you are taking vitamins because they taste so good and melt so easily in your mouth to be better absorbed in your body.

Zinc for Immune Support ~ Honey Lemon Flavor, Vitamin D for Bone and Immune Health ~ Creamy Vanilla Flavor, Vitamin C for Immune Support ~ Juicy Orange Flavor, Relax ~ Green Tea Mint Flavor, Energy for Energy Production ~ Berry Flavor and Sleep to help Support Sleep ~ Chocolate Mint Flavor.
And as I shared with you before, my 2013 Healthy Pledge is that I am going to start taking better care of myself. I will make time to fit my exercise in, along with making healthier food choices and taking my vitamins on a regular basis. Taking care of myself means that I can then take care of those I care about. So, for me that is a win win.
