Chocolate + Caramel = Strong Bones

For some people (ahem me, my mom, my sister, my oldest daughter), getting enough calcium can be a challenge. None of us like milk. We are able to get our calcium from other sources like greens, but we often fall short. In fact, almost 70% of women, on average, are calcium deficient. That’s not good. We want our strong bones to keep up upright and healthy.

I worry about all of us and the fact that we don’t get our necessary calcium daily. Why? Because calcium isn’t made in the body, we have to put it in our body with our diet or supplements. So, if we aren’t ingesting it, we’ve got issues. Our body is funny, too because it will take calcium from wherever it can in the body and use it. So, you need calcium, your body takes it from your bones and uses it. You need calcium to help create your growing baby’s bones? Yep, you guess it, right from your body. So, if you want strong bones and your want your people to have strong bones, they have to make sure they are getting calcium from diet or supplements.

We emphasize that we need to make sure we are doing exercise and weight baring exercise to make our bones strong (does carrying kids around all the time count), but we also have to make sure we are getting it in our diet.

We were introduced to Viactiv Calcium Soft Chews, two of which taken daily provide 100% of the daily value of calcium for most women plus vitamins D3 & K. They come in both chocolate and caramel flavors (yum!) and are a soft chew instead of a giant pill that needs to be swallowed! Of course, just taking a supplement isn’t all you should do. Viactiv is part of the three keys to healthy bones:

  • Obtaining an adequate daily dose of calcium from your diet
  • Regular bone strengthening exercises
  • Supplementing when diet is not enough

Another plus? Viactiv Calcium Soft Chews are gluten-free which is a nice touch. I do wish that they were also dairy-free as I know that most people that don’t get enough calcium have a hard time doing so in their diet because they can’t have dairy.

Viactiv Calcium Soft Chews: Walmart, Rite Aid, CVS, Target, Walgreens, and drugstore.com and can be found on Facebook. #ViactivYoursandHers
