Vitamins for bones can be found in healthy balanced diets!



You can agree with me that every organ or even tissues in our body are not only important but precious! As is always said, you never know what you have and their values until you lose them.Imagine waking up one morning only to find that you can't stand on your feet because you had a broken broken bone. It could be dreadful!

Not only bones, losing any of these precious parts of our body could be very unthinkable that is to show how precious they are to us.

Healthy bones are not only desirable but beneficial to us as the state of our bones can affect especially our mobility, posture and in fact, the overall quality of our lives. To main healthy bones, you need thse essential vitamins such as Vitamins D, Vitamin K, Calcium and Magnessium!


Reader's Digest Universal Dictionary defined Vitamin as "Any of various relatively complex organicsubstances occuring naturally in plant and in some animal tissue,and essential in small amounts for the control of metabolic processes" It is also pronouned as 'vitamine'until it was discovered that it does not contain Amonia acids.

Vitamin is also defined by Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia thus: "Vitamin is an organic compound required as a vital nutri8ent in tiny amounts by an organism. In order words, an organic chemical compound (or related set of compounds)is called a vitamin when it cannot be syntheesized in sufficient quantities by an organisms, and must be opbtained from the diet."

"Vitamins are classified by their biological and chemical activity and not their structure.Thus, each "Vitamin" refers to a number of vitamer compounds that all show the biological activity associated with a particular vitamin.

Such a set of chemicals is grouped under an alphebetized vitamin "generic descripttor" title such as "Vitamin A", which includes the compounds retinal, retinol, and four known carotenoids. known caroteneoids.

Vitamers by definition are convertible to the active form of the vitamin in the body, and are sometimes inter-convertible to one another, as well."

"Vitamins have diverse boichemical functions. Some have hormone-like functions as regulators of mineral metabolism (e.g.,Vitamin D), or regulators of cell and tissue growth and differentiation (e.g.,some forms of Vitamin A). Others function as antioxidants (e.g., Vitamin E and sometimes Vitamin C).

The largest number of vitamins (e.g., B complex vitamins), function as precursors for enzymes cofactors, that help enzymes in their work as catalysts in metabolism."


My greatest discovery while researching for this article is this write up which I will sincerely reproduce so that you will equally know how essential vitamins are to uoour lives. "Vitamins, I quote, are essential for the normal growth and development of a multicellular organism.

Using the genettic blue print inherited from its parents, a fetus begins to develop, at the moment of conception, from the nutrients it absorbs. It requires certain vitamins and minerals to be present at certain times.

These nutrients facilitate the chemical reactions that produce among other things, skin, bone,and muscle. If there is serious deficiency in one or more of the nutrients, a child may develop[ a deficiency disease. Every minor deficiencies may cause permanent damage"

Now, you have seen the importance of Vitamins and what they can do to our body from fetus to a grown up human being!

Vitamins are also classified as either water-soluble or fat-soluble. In humans,there are 13 vitamins: 4 fat-soluble (A, D,E, and K) and 9 water-soluble (8 B vitamins and vitamin C). Water-soluble vitamins dissolve easily in water and, in general, are readily excreted from the body,to the degree that urinary output is a strong predictor of vitamin consumption".

Because they are not readily stored, consistent daily intake is important. Many types of water-soluble vitamins are synthesized by bacteria. Fat-soluble vitamins are absorbed through the intestinal tract with the help of lipids (fats). These are because they are more likely to accumulate in the body, they are more likely to lead to hypervitaminosis than are water-soluble vitamins"

The best source of vitamins for bones are found in vitamin D which is provided by sun light.Other sources are found in eggs,, fish oils, liver, mushroom, milk and fortified foods such as spreads. Dairy products such as milk provide plenty of Calcium while vegetables like spinach provide the powerful vitamin K and other health-promoting nutrients vitamins such magnesium.

To maintain healthy bones you need to eat these recommended diets and have regular exercises as well to boost your life for good health and long life.
