My Favorite Calcium Supplement

For years I have never liked drinking milk much. I drink about one glass per day on a good day. I have known for a long time that I don’t get nearly enough calcium. I tried taking supplements years ago, but never took more then one or two because I could not stand the taste.

The other day I was at Walmart shopping. I was in the pharmacy section actually looking for a certain type of chap stick that is found there. That is when I stumbled upon what is now my ultimate favorite calcium supplement.

I was checking out the vitamins to see if they had a new kind of calcium supplement that didn’t taste as horrible as the kind I had tried before. Calcium was not on my shopping list nor were any vitamins. This is when I found the perfect calcium supplement for me. It is; Jamieson Swiss milk chocolate soft calcium chews. Each chew has 650 mg of calcium! That is comparable to most other calcium supplements.

I was a little skeptical on how they would taste, but when pleasantly surprised that they taste pretty good.

There are 20 calories in each chew. Granted that is many more calories then in most other calcium supplements but the 20 extra calories are a small price to pay for a supplement that tastes (not just bearable but good!).

I will still have to try to drink my milk as I always do (for the vitamin D) and get as much sun shine for the vitamin D as well (since vitamin D aids in calcium absorption), but I think the added 650 mg of calcium will do my body a lot of good.
