What are the best foods and strategies for strong bones? Bone health issues often provide underlying signs of where traditional medicine is failing us. Kevin Ellis, better known as Bone Coach™, is a Forbes-featured Integrative Health Coach, podcaster, YouTuber, and the founder of BoneCoach.com and the Strong Bones Masterclass

He’s chatting with Dr. Jockers today in this episode that is all about preventing osteoporosis so that we can lead long, healthy lives. Have you reached peak bone mass? What about your kids? This is why it’s so important to think about healthy nutrition — so that we can be the shepherd for our children. This way we get to head off the affiliated health risks associated with poor bone density so that they don’t become a problem for future generations. 

From what we eat and how we exercise, to the medication we should (or shouldn’t take), this conversation is the very bones of what Functional Nutrition is constantly advocating (pardon the pun). Kevin Ellis provides awesome insight for all of us looking to make healthier lifestyle and food choices for strong, healthy bones.

What is actual osteoporosis? It just literally means ‘porous bone’. And it’s a condition that’s characterized by either not enough bone formation, excessive bone loss, or it’s a combination of the two of those things.

Purality Health Vitamin C

If you’ve tried collagen for aging skin and haven’t gotten the results you want… It’s because most collagen is missing a critical ingredient. And without this “missing link,” collagen WILL NOT WORK. With this “missing link” you can turn loose, saggy skin –– into tight, glowing, younger-looking skin!

So what is that missing link I am talking about? VITAMIN C.

Of course, you may know Vitamin C as a powerful immune-boosting nutrient…

But did you know Vitamin C is a critical nutrient for anti-aging? You see, Vitamin C it’s the “glue” that holds collagen together in your body. And if you’re low in Vitamin C, well all of that collagen you’re taking is pointless.

And here’s the thing, not all Vitamin C supplements are created equal…

If you’re taking Vitamin C in capsule or tablet form, you are missing out on key nutrients as they will simply pass through your body without being absorbed (you can thank your stomach acid for that).

However, our friends over at Purality Health have a patented formula that utilizes something called ‘MICELLE LIPOSOMAL’ technology which delivers the nutrients into your bloodstream – proven to be 800% more efficient!

So, if your skin is looking older than you… And the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, sagging skin, and otherwise “old-looking” skin frustrates you…

Give Purality Health’s Micelle Liposomal Vitamin C a try! It’s backed by a 180-day money-back guarantee. And today, we have a 30% OFF coupon for you! Just visit puralityhealth.com and use the coupon DRJ to access 30% OFF your purchase today!
