My cousin Greg, (yep the one you’ve heard me mention so often), just asked me the other day if I took calcium supplements. When I said no, he was so shocked. REALLY!
I know you’re thinking why in the world would your male cousin be asking that question. Greg knows a lot about osteoporosis because his mother, my Aunt Nita had it, along with 10 million other Americans ~ both men and women, mostly women but men can suffer from it too.
My sweet Aunt suffered from many broken bones and Greg’s comments got me thinking about my own bones. That’s why I'm so happy to get the chance to review Adora Calcium Supplements.
Did you know that by the time we reach our 30’s, we naturally stop building bone mass and start losing it. I’ve never been a big milk drinker, just with the occasional chocolate chip cookie or bowl of cereal. Well that's no way enough to meet the recommended daily calcium intake. See the chart below:
Calcium & Vitamin D Requirements By Age*
Age Calcium mg/day Vitamin D IU/day
4-8 800 200
9-18 1300 200
19-50 1000 200
51-70 1200 400
70+ 1200 600
Adequate calcium intake plays a vital role in all stages of a female's life. Adora Calcium is a great way for women and girls of all ages to meet their calcium and vitamin D requirements.
I really don’t like swallowing pills, does anyone? I have an even harder time swallowing thick liquids. But I have never had trouble eating chocolate. You might already know that if you read this blog. That’s where Adora comes in. They’ve solved all my problems and best of all made it a NOT so guilty pleasure. Now I don’t have to worry about that chocolate craving because it’s a good thing when it’s combined with my calcium supplement. Yea!!!
I'm mean it when I say this is good. It taste like a treat, it's not like a medicine tasting chocolate. It doesn't have a chalky taste. It's good!
