Vitamin D


Scroll down a few blogs and you can see the recent blog about the Smoothie Essentials Calcium Blend where I highlighted … Calcium.

However, what I only touched lightly on was the Vitamin D component of the Calcium Blend.

Vitamin D is the active component needed in a calcium blend because it helps your body absorb the calcium. Otherwise, whatever calcium you take into your body might not stick around long enough to do you any good.

Calcium helps your bones grow and your muscles contract and flex, whereas cutting yourself short on Vitamin D can lead to bone diseases such as osteoporosis or rickets, and it also plays a significant role in your nerve, muscle and immune systems.

It’s true you can get vitamin D from other sources besides the Smoothie Essentials calcium Blend. Your body absorbs vitamin D from the sun. But not everyone is interested in basking for hours beneath the solar rays. some people, contrariwise, are driving down the road to their favorite smoothie shop for vitamin D instead.

Adding a Calcium Boost to your menu is not only an upsell to your profit margin, but it’s an upsell people are actually looking for.

Hence, the reason for these blogs. The information disemminated here for you should likewise be discussed between your employees and your customers. Educate your customers and you will guide them into the benefits of healthy nutrition.

As with all our blends, they blend right into whatever beverage is already on the menu. No need to change your product line ~ just enhance the vitality of the ingredients with a boost ~ in this case, a calcium and vitamin D boost.

Vitamin D. The topic of the week. Tell people. Tell them that Calcium and Vitamin D go hand in hand with their flexibility and muscle tone. It’s part of a healthy lifestyle.

Vitamin D. You can get it from egg yolks, saltwater fish, liver, and certain milk and dairy products right off the shelf.

As usual, not everyone is in the peak of health. Therefore it is advisable for anyone discussing health related topics to always remind each other to discuss their dietary peculiarities with their doctor.


About Smoothie Essentials - ShelleRae

Welcome! I am ShelleRae and I am very excited you are here. I joined the Smoothie Essentials team about 5 years ago now. Always health conscious and into prevention versus medication it seemed natural when the opportunity came up to take on the creation of this blog and the MatchaGT blog as well. As mother to three and surrogate to many more I've practiced much of what I write on sometimes with great success and other times with a bit less. My friends and family are my test kitchen and my facts are most often from WebMD - they seem to have a fairly accurate and conservative approach. The Smoothie Essentials product is a line of boosts that add functionality to one's daily foods without adding flavor or colors. (except for MatchaGT and green blend) making it easy to "hide" them from the finicky eaters we all know and love. From stirring them into yogurts, smoothies, frappes and even juice drinks it all come out with the original flavor being center star.. My inspiration comes from others who also are striving to live a better life through lifestyle changes. More information is available at or by emailing
