Hey, I'm Keri Glassman, here with some quick and simple tips to help you feel just a little
bit better. You hear all the time about how you should monitor your nutrients and ensure
you’re getting more of some and less of others. Too much information can be just as
bad as too little. Today, I’m going to tell you about just three tough-to-get nutrients.
Calcium, known for its role in building strong teeth and bones, also plays an important role
in muscle and nerve health. Stick to the sure things: Dairy foods contain easily absorbed
forms of calcium. Dark leafy greens also provide some calcium. So make sure you have plenty
of both in your diet. Choline is a nutrient you may have never heard of, but it’s absolutely
essential for brain development and memory. A great source of choline is found in eggs,
and don’t skip that yolk. That’s where most of the choline and the flavor is. Forty
percent of Americans don't get enough vitamin D, a bone-building nutrient important also
for immunity. It may also reduce your risk of cardiovascular disease and rheumatoid arthritis.
Responsible time in the sun, salmon, mushrooms and milk are some of the best sources of vitamin
D. Remember: calcium, choline, vitamin D. Getting adequate nutrients is a sure way to
feel just a little bit better.
