Calcium and Vitamin D

Many of Aunt Millie’s baked goods are enriched with calcium, and several of these are also enriched with vitamin D. Calcium plays an important role in achieving and maintaining optimum bone health, and vitamin D plays an important role by aiding in its absorption. When consumed as a part of a well-balanced diet and incorporated with an active and healthy life-style, these compounds reduce the risk of developing osteoporosis, a disease characterized by a reduced bone mineral density.

Calcium and vitamin D not only promote healthy bone formation and retention, but have multiple other benefits. Calcium is vital for muscle contraction and heart function. Adequate vitamin D intake has been linked to decreased susceptibility for development of high blood pressure, cancer, seasonal affective disorder, type-1 diabetes, and coronary heart disease. Vitamin D is naturally produced by the body when exposed to sunlight, however, for those with inadequate sunlight exposure, vitamin D consumption is critical to ensure proper nutrition. Many of Aunt Millie’s products are enriched with calcium and vitamin D to provide you with tasty ways to incorporate these essential nutrients into your diet.
