Without paying close attention to your diet, it may be easy for you to push calcium to the back burner. However, we still love to walk, we exercise sometimes; we may do chores or even play sports.

If the roots of a flower/tree have not grown enough to be deeply rooted, yet it keeps getting tampered with, it will affect the quality of the tree’s life. Likewise, if you continue to use your muscles but do nothing to take care of them, they will be worn out.

Hence, calcium, magnesium and Vitamin D play a major role where muscle and bone development are concerned.

The Many Health Benefits of Having Cranberries in Your Smoothie

Thanks to soy(a) milk (has calcium, vitamin D and magnesium), and Greek yogurt (which contain magnesium and calcium). Vitamin D absorbs calcium and magnesium. It also helps to maintain a normal muscle and nerve function.

Increasing your protein can increase your muscle growth. If your protein goes, it’s highly likely that muscle goes too. During exercise, your muscles can tear. As your muscle tears, your protein restores.

High protein increases the strength of your muscles too.

With this unique blend of ingredients, your bones will be smiling. While bone health is important, other areas contribute to it too. A healthy defense system improves the body functions in all areas.

Cranberries are stacked with vitamin C and antioxidants, to ward off diseases or illnesses for you. The magnesium in soy milk is a friend of your immune system as well.

Give your body the nutrients it needs, it will reward you accordingly!
