Our bones are our support of life

… We, humans, are miracles.

Let us become aware of what we take for granted every day: our body consists of more than 200 bones.
These bone/skeletons carry our weight throughout our lives.
They are ready non-stop and endure all our movements, strains, sporting challenges, and heavy physical work.
Even if they seem rigid to us: bones are a very active, living tissue!

It is, therefore, all the more important that we take care of our scaffolding, perceive it as what it is so that it can give us a secure hold in our lives every day.

In order to take good care of our skeleton, we must first understand what bones are:

They consist mainly of water, minerals and organic substances such as proteins.

From the development up to the age of about 25, bone formation takes place and has then reached the maximum bone density. If there is nothing extraordinary like high wear (keyword: weight, (hereditary) diseases (e.g. arthrosis)) the bone density remains constant for another 15-25 years.

Our bones are permanently built up and broken down and adapt to our requirements.
The bone density (i.e. the mineral salt content of the bones) of every human being decreases naturally in the course of his or her life. The bone becomes more and more brittle with age.
In addition, most people move less and less with increasing age and this also has no good influence on the stability of the bone.

Did you know that bones are only built up when they are required to move?DSC00568 300x200
So if the bone has little or no load, it is broken down. This is independent of age. Already from childhood, we should move our bodies sufficiently.

In order to be prepared for your future, it is already important for you and your bone mass to care.
But how?
Two aspects play an outstanding role in the development of bone: BDZ NIKKEN Bottle EU 161x300
Exercise and nutrition.
– Bones need exercise:
Sufficient exercise enables the bones to store calcium optimally.
Sport promotes bone metabolism and calcium can be built into the bones. Jogging, hiking, climbing stairs, rope jumping, many racket sports favor this.
– Bones need calcium: Calcium gives bone strength. Dairy products are not so popular because they acidify us. Better sources of calcium with better bioavailability are very good food supplements, soy products or cabbage types or calcium-containing mineral waters. Take eight before the calcium robber phosphate. It is mainly found in sausages, cola drinks, and preservatives of ready meals.
– Bones need vitamin D so that calcium can be absorbed and incorporated into the bones.
– Magnesium and zinc.

If you take this to heart, then you have a reserve from which your body can benefit when it needs it.

The breakdown of bone mass is therefore natural and does not mean that everyone automatically develops osteoporosis. This is often mistakenly assumed.
Every year we lose about 1% of our mass, which is a natural sign of aging. In women, bone loss often increases after the menopause.

This makes it all the more important to supply your body with the points mentioned above!
If we do not supply our body sufficiently and with the wrong things we run the risk of developing osteoporosis.
Our bones lose much of their mass, it becomes unstable and breaks easily.
Inadequate supply is caused by it:
– Taking medication (e.g. cortisone)
– smoking – excessive alcohol consumption – unhealthy diet ( keyword: phosphate ) and
– a diet low in calcium
– as well as a movement deficit.

Keep an eye on your strong bones throughout your life, then you can profit from them in the long run and continue to do the things you love.
Take good care of yourself in order to lead an independent life. Without age-related fractures that would be accompanied by pain and suffering.

Our bones are the support of our life!

Nutritional Supplements – Full-value support for our nutrition with NIKKEN

Nutrition in today’s society

Good nutrition is one of the cornerstones of good health.
We need a variety of different foods to provide the right amounts of nutrients for good health.
However, in these fast-moving times, it can often be difficult to eat a full, balanced and varied diet. Instead, convenience and the supply of ready meals determine our diet, with it becoming increasingly difficult to maintain low levels of sugar, fat, and salt (not to mention additives) if we do not prepare our meals ourselves. This affects our health, and the weight problems that have almost become the norm in our society are worrying. In addition, the nutrient content of our fresh foods has decreased due to “modern intensive farming”.

Full-value support for our nutrition:

Food supplement from NIKKEN as adaptation and support to our modern everyday life

Undoubtedly, the best solution to a healthy diet is to eat three self-prepared whole meals that ideally contain at least five or more portions of fresh fruit and vegetables (raw). For most people, however, this is difficult to achieve in terms of time, in addition to the multitude of their daily commitments. Nikken, therefore, provides us with a range of basic and targeted nutritional supplements based on concentrated wholefood ingredients that support our basic nutritional needs in our hectic daily lives. The word supplement is deliberately chosen because the products are not intended to support the sole supply.

We offer the following products:


Proper nutrition is essential for good health, but it is not always possible to eat properly and provide our body with the nutrients it needs.

Feel-good home and good nutrition

Six basic nutrients are required for good health.
These include:

Carbohydrates – Carbohydrates are divided into two categories: simple and complex. Carbohydrates are the main source of energy for the brain. Without carbohydrates, the body could not function properly. Sources are fruit, bread, cereals, and starchy vegetables.

Protein is broken down into amino acids by the digestive system. Protein is the main structural component of cells and is responsible for building and repairing body tissue. Lean protein such as low-fat meat, dairy products, beans or eggs. There are many other vegetable protein sources if you decide for yourself.

Fat – The fat in foods contains a mixture of saturated and unsaturated fats. Fat is an energy source that increases the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins, including vitamins A, D, E and K, when consumed. Choose healthy options such as omega-3-rich foods such as fish, walnuts and vegetable oils. Omega-3 fatty acids help with development and growth. Limit the intake of saturated fats such as high-fat meat and high-fat milk. Otherwise, choices are nuts, seeds, and avocado.

Vitamins – both water-soluble and fat-soluble. There may be slight differences in the amounts of specific vitamins for men and women, but in general, the essential vitamins your body needs are:
Vitamin A
vitamin C
vitamin D
vitamin E
vitamin K
B vitamins

The best way to get these vitamins is a healthy and balanced diet with lots of fruits and vegetables. A multivitamin supplement can also be useful to fill the gaps if you have a restrictive diet.

Minerals – These essential nutrients your body needs but cannot produce include the inorganic substances in foods such as calcium, potassium, sodium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, chloride and trace elements.
Water is said to be our most important nutrient. Water supports the maintenance of homeostasis in the body and transports nutrients to the cells. Water also helps remove waste products from the body.

If possible, choose fresh organic products. Eat as naturally as possible and try to avoid processed foods.

An effective nutrition strategy is more than just what we eat. It requires attention to many self-care processes that can affect our well-being. Good sleep, proper hydration with healthy water, reducing our body’s exposure to toxic chemicals and coping with stress are all important for improving and maintaining good health.
One of the most important decisions we make every day is what we eat and drink. It is everyone’s choice to eat healthy or not.BOWL 300x200
