Swiss Natural is a pioneer of the natural health products industry in Canada, being one of the first companies to sell herbs and vitamins. They have a long history of making health supplements that work with our diets and lifestyles. Calcium is one of those things I try to remember to take and always forget. Now that I am over 40 it is crucial to make sure I do NOT forget things like Calcium. I do not want osteoporosis. However, calcium is also crucial to maintaining healthy blood pressure, blood clotting and healthy bones and teeth.
We do receive most of our calcium through what we eat. Dark greens like broccoli, cheeses, and other dairy products, nuts like almonds, all contain calcium. But the daily recommended intake is about 1200 mg/day and many adults are not getting that through diet alone.
Now, thanks to Swiss Natural, calcium is calciummmmm. They have introduced their Chocolate Fudge Brownie chews, with Vitamin D.
I will be totally honest and thanks to an odd childhood (don’t ask) I have had distaste for any thing chocolate flavored that was ‘medicinal.’ Brought back memories of laxatives. (seriously, don’t ask) However, these Chocolate Fudge Brownies are very tasty and easy to eat. I keep the sample bag by the kettle in the kitchen. Then I grab em as I stroll in and out of the kitchen. It is more like a chocolatey snack than a health supplement.
They got the thumbs up from the kids too, and that is amazing since they won’t eat anything good for them unless it is in a gummy state. However, my mom does wonder if we will ever have calcium in a gummy style?
