I didn’t drink a whole lot of milk as a young adult. In fact, I can remember once claiming to my grandmother when I was young that I was lactose intolerant just so I wouldn’t have to drink it. Of course she had known me all my life, so I’m not sure why I thought it would work.
Fortunately Bubbles doesn’t have that problem. Milk is the first drink she asks for. I thankful that is comes so easy, at least for the time being, because 95% of bone building happens by age 20. Females are born with lower bone density than men which creates a higher need for daily calcium intake, so we really need to step up our game, in general.
Both Sissy and I could take a lesson from Bubbles. I know that I don’t get the amount of calcium I should, and I doubt that with the heavy schedule of a college senior that Ashley does, either. She and I aren’t alone, though: almost 70% of women, on average, are calcium deficient, and for teen girls specifically, that number jumps to 86%.
Viactiv Calcium Soft Chews
So recently I’ve been taking Viactiv Calcium Soft Chews. Just two convenient Soft Chews provides 100% of most women’s recommended daily allowance of calcium, plus vitamins D3 and K. Plus they come in two great flavors, chocolate (which I gave to Ashley) and caramel (which I kept for myself), so I almost feel like I’m getting a little treat when I take them.
If you’re curious if you or your teens are getting enough calcium check out Viactiv’s website. You should also head over to the Viactiv Facebook page to enter their 15th Birthday Bash Giveaway. The entry periods run from the 4th to the 15th of each month, April through July. On the 15th of each month 15 winners will be randomly selected to receive two canisters of Viactiv Calcium Soft Chews.
Be sure to look for Viactiv Calcium Soft Chews at Walmart, Rite Aid, CVS, Target, Walgreens, and online from drugstore.com.
