We know how important vitamins and minerals are for the proper functioning of our body. What many people underestimate, however is how crucial some of these may be for keeping us fit and preventing some of the most serious health conditions. And while it is difficult to point out a single micronutrient as most important, if you have to prioritize and avoid deficiency, it would be wise to bet on Vitamin D. The good news is that keeping your healthy levels is quite pleasant. Read on to see how.

‘In the grocery store:
- Do you have Tom & Jerry?
- I beg your pardon!?
- Berry cherry?
- Do you mean roji berry?
- Oh, yes, that was it exactly…!’
Such jokes have become part of our life much like all the super foods flooding the health stores.

Health is the prerequisite of happiness. And isn’t that what we all strive for! Not quite, or at least not only that. We desire also pleasure, indulgence and good time. As healthy food manufacturers, we believed we can incorporate all of that in our products. That is how Coppa della Maga (in Italian ‘The Bowl of the magician’) was created and since the very beginning, we aim to combine health, indulgence and beauty into each of our products and everything we do.
Without doubt, one of the things we miss most while staying at home is movement. And while it is difficult to organize on our own a whole training session as you would do in the gym or a group class, it is quite easy to turn our attention to another type of exercise that is otherwise often neglected: stretching. Fitness experts say it’s the part of a workout that most people tend to skip. It can make a difference in how your muscles respond to exercise by warming your muscles, which makes them more pliant.
