VITAMIN D is an essential nutrient that is necessary for the growth and development of bones and teeth. It is a fat-soluble vitamin in the family of compounds that includes vitamins D1, D2 and D3.

Apart from this, the body can attain the daily requirements of this nutrient by adding healthy foods to its diet that are an abundant source of vitamin D.

Also referred to as ‘calciferol’, vitamin D is known for its bone-building and strengthening powers. It also helps in regulating the calcium and phosphorus levels in the body and maintaining proper bone structure. Here are some vital reasons why you should add vitamin D-rich foods to your regular diet regime.

‘The small things are the big things’

Imagine running as fast as you can, carrying several unwieldy objects. You’re exhausted, but you have to keep going and not drop anything. Suddenly, a brick wall appears. You slam straight into it, dropping everything and crashing to the ground.

The unwieldy running is a metaphor for life in my thirties: rushing from dropping off the kids to a full-time job, desperate to be a good friend, daughter, wife, mother and colleague. In 2021, aged 40, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. That was the brick wall.

My diagnosis of stage-three, grade-three, triple-negative breast cancer required five months of chemotherapy to shrink the tumours before I could then have surgery to remove my breast and lymph nodes from under my right arm (where they also found cancer). It was followed by 15 rounds of radiotherapy and, to cap it off, a further six months of adjuvant chemo.

I felt as

Healthy Diet: How It Can Help To Regulate Body Temperature During Summers

Malaria & Dengue Day 2023: Fever Causes, Symptoms and Prevention Guide - Onlymyhealth

For many of us summers can be a time for discomfort and unease. With temperatures rising to unbearable levels, it’s essential to keep your body cool and comfortable. While turning up the air conditioning or taking a dip in the pool might provide temporary relief, your diet can be a powerful tool to regulate your body temperature during summers. Here are seven reasons why your diet can play a crucial role in keeping you cool and comfortable during the hottest months of the year.

Hydration Is Key

Drinking plenty of water is essential for regulating body temperature during the summer. When you’re dehydrated, your body struggles to regulate its temperature, leading to discomfort and even heat exhaustion. Keep a water bottle with you at all times and sip on it regularly throughout the day. You can also consume water-rich foods like watermelon, cucumber, and celery to help stay hydrated.

How Ryan Reynolds Got in Superhero Shape for ‘Deadpool’

MCU fans rejoiced earlier this year when news broke that not only would Ryan Reynolds be returning for a third Deadpool film, he’d be joined by Hugh Jackman’s previously retired Wolverine. The upcoming Deadpool 3 will reportedly see both characters catapulted into the main Marvel cinematic continuity via some multiverse shenanigans. All in all, it sounds pretty great.

But you don’t need to be a comic nerd to appreciate the pairing. Both Jackman and Reynolds are notoriously stacked making their inevitable muscle-bound face-off the most exciting gym-bro film since The Expendables.

It’s thanks to celebrity coach and fitness entrepreneur (and now Lumen ambassador) Don Saladino that Ryan Reynolds has been able to put the ‘super’ in superhero. Ironically enough, they were first introduced 14 years ago through Jackman, and have worked together on numerous projects ever since.

“We just hit it off, we had very similar fitness goals and

That could be anything from a long walk to HIIT, circuit training or strength programs, done several times a week and however you choose.

At Tom’s Guide, we designed this seven-minute seven-move EMOM workout to target major muscle groups, including your core and upper and lower body, raise your heart rate and boost fitness. Here’s how to do it using a set of the best adjustable
