Elyse Jarard, taking it easy in Washington Park, Cincinnati

Hi!  Thanks for visiting my blog.  My name is Elyse Jarard and I am a fitness professional in Cincinnati, Ohio.  I own a fitness studio for women and girls called Venus Fitness For Her.  It is located in Montgomery, a northeastern suburb of Cincinnati.  I do personal training and teach workshops about nutrition and essential oils.

My ultimate vision is a world in peace, free from disease, where people value their bodies as vessels to do good.

The goal of this blog is to inspire people (not just female type) all over the world to live healthy and sustainably.  I shun fads of any kind (diets, workouts, products) because, lets face it, a fad is not sustainable, and if you can’t do something in the long term, its probably not that good for you.

Drop me a line in the comments below!   Say “Hi” or ask me a question about fitness nutrition, or just living a healthier more meaningful life.  I love to answer! 🙂   Thanks for visiting!

be well…Elyse

    In your recent article in the Cincinnati Enquirer, you mentioned all the things a good calcium supplement will contain. I cannot find one that contains even both calcium citrate and calcium carbonate. Can you recommend a specific brand?

    • Peggy,
      What brand are you taking? I have not looked at all the products on the market (that would take a REALLY long time), but I know that a couple of companies are very reputable.
      To answer your question, I used a product called Active Calcium by Usana. Usana is a chelated product which means the minerals are in their most absorbable form (so it actually gets absorbed by your body). You can purchase it thru Venus and I think its about $25 for a month supply. It can be purchased online or in the store.
      Another product is Bone Strength Take Care by New Chapter (this brand you can find in Whole Foods or another Health Food Store) and it retails for $59.95. It does not contain boron, but it does have Vitamin K.
      I know all this is SO incredibly confusing! One of the reasons I use Usana brand is because I know the company well, know they will put together the best formulation based on research, not on hype.
      I know this is a long-winded answer to your question! I hope this helps and if you want to talk more, or purchase the product I would be happy to talk on the phone or talk in person. My cell number is 513-368-9319. I will be at Venus tomorrow till 1pm. Thanks so much for reading the column and if you have any other questions, please just ask! Elyse
