After a few vigorous pedaling movements, I brought the longboard to the desired speed and placed both feet on it one behind the other. And while I was cruising along the country lanes elegantly and with flowing hair, the longboard shot out from under me with a swing and I was hanging in the air. And while I floated so falling, my whole life passed before my inner eye. Of course it didn’t, but somehow it describes very aptly what was going on in me during those seconds. I saw myself fly and fall in slow motion. I saw how I slowly floated towards the asphalt, rolled over my shoulder like a cat with a somersault, and came to a stand with a “Tadaaa”, arms outstretched in triumph.
What really happened: While I was hanging in the air, I shouted “body tension!” before, with the best possible body tension of a moderately trained 53-year-old, I splashed my stomach on the side of the road and rolled a bit down the adjacent meadow. I saw my son and a shocked-looking stroller running towards me while I lay giggling on the grass and registered that, thanks to a helmet and protective equipment, I had luckily not broken my neck or any bones. It was then that I realized the importance of a healthy, well-trained body with strong bones, and that I have to do more – for my fitness, and for my bones.
For my fitness I stay on solid ground for the time being and therefore switch to hiking.
For strong bones and a strong immune system: Debora plus K2
Let’s not kid ourselves: The older we women get, the more important it is to maintain healthy bones, because women in particular can be troubled by osteoporosis . The bones are becoming more and more porous, and even a small fall can lead to fractures. Our skeleton should carry us through life for a few more joyful years! What many do not know:
Already from the age of 35 the body loses about 1 – 1.5 percent bone substance. Regular intake of vitamins D3 and K2 is therefore particularly important for maintaining healthy bones and a strong immune system.
Unfortunately, in our part of the world we are often affected by a vitamin D deficiency – I am one of them. Unfortunately, the formation of vitamin D is hardly possible right now, in the cold and dark season. The reason: Sunlight is the most important source of vitamin D for us – and we lack it now. A maximum of 10-20 percent vitamin D is also absorbed through food, and this often leads to a vitamin D deficiency without being noticed.
Because I can’t lie in the sparse autumn-winter sun for hours, I also take Debora plus K2 to rebuild my sinking vitamin D level.
Although I have a balanced diet, I have deficiencies in some vitamins and minerals. After I was constantly tired and exhausted for a while, my doctor determined a severe vitamin D deficiency through a blood test, which I could not make up for with a healthy diet alone. So I decided to add Debora plus K2.
Up until now, I only knew the administration of vitamin D in the form of tablets or drops. Debora plus K2 is a capsule in which the active ingredients are dissolved in linseed and sunflower oil. The transparent, greenish capsule is pleasantly easy to swallow and I tolerate it very well. No stomach tearing, no reflux.
I don’t get tired so quickly anymore and, interestingly enough, I lose less hair. I had always attributed this to my iron deficiency, but apparently my vitamin D deficiency played its part.
Of course, dietary supplements are no substitute for a balanced, varied diet and a healthy lifestyle. But they help me to reliably compensate for an existing deficit. The quality of the dietary supplement is important to me. I don’t grab the cheapest product from the drugstore, but research until I find the right product in the best quality for me, like Debora plus K2 . By the way, I am buying it here .
Why is the combination of vitamin D3 + K2 so important and what does it do?
The combination of vitamin D3 and K2 in Debora plus K2 ensures:
The vitamin K 2 ensures that the calcium absorbed with the help of vitamin D is built into the bones. If the body does not have enough vitamin K 2 , the calcium is not stored in the bones. Instead, the calcium can be deposited in the blood vessels and organs (such as the kidneys), which can then be damaged. In addition, the calcium is then no longer available in sufficient quantities for bone formation to maintain normal bones .
Vitamin D and Vitamin K are fat-soluble vitamins. You need vegetable oils as a transport medium in order to be able to absorb them particularly well in the intestine. The fructose-, yeast- and lactose-free capsules by Debora ® plus K 2 contain vitamins D 3 and K 2 dissolved in virgin flaxseed oil and sunflower oil.
What are the tasks of vitamin D?
One of the most important tasks of vitamin D, the so-called sun vitamin, is the control of calcium absorption to strengthen bones and teeth, maintain normal muscle function and normal function of the immune system. Vitamin D also supports the muscles and hair.
Vitamin D contributes to the normal function of the immune system, to the maintenance of normal muscle function and to a normal calcium level in the blood. Vitamins D and K help maintain normal bones. Click to Tweet
What are the tasks of vitamin K2?
Vitamin K occurs naturally in two forms: as vitamin K 1 (phylloquinone) and K 2 (menaquinone). Vitamin K 1 is mainly found in animal foods such as in liver and eggs, but also in green leafy vegetables such as spinach, cabbage or lettuce. Fermentation converts vitamin K 1 into the vitamin K 2 , which is more valuable to us. It can be found in fermented foods such as sauerkraut, yoghurt or cheese and smoked fish.
Vitamin K 2 plays an important role in bone metabolism . It is fat soluble, so it should always be taken with a meal.
A lack of vitamin K2 can lead to health problems. On the one hand, the mineral density in the bones decreases because calcium cannot be bound in the bone tissue. The bones become increasingly porous and brittle – one then speaks of osteoporosis . On the other hand, if there is a lack of K 2 , the calcium can increasingly accumulate in the artery walls .
How do you recognize a vitamin D deficiency?
Any suspicion of a vitamin D deficiency should always be discussed with your doctor. An undersupply can be diagnosed with the help of tests and examinations. Possible symptoms of a vitamin D deficiency are:
- Decrease in bone density, bone pain
- increased susceptibility to infection
- Hair loss
- Muscle weakness, muscle pain, body aches
- disturbed bone mineralization with bone pain and deformations
- Muscle cramps, migraines
