Calcium. It Does A Body Good.

Allow me to introduce you to my new best friend.

Trader Joe’s Chocolate Calcium Chews.

During my time on the 40 Days Program I came to realize that milk is something that does not serve my body. I was off milk, and most dairy, during the entire 40 days program. 50+ days or so after the cleanse, I introduced milk back into my diet and it was a major shock to my body. I came to realize that milk does not work for me, it was a sad realization, but something that truly made sense.

Since taking milk out of my diet, I have been on the hunt to find new and creative ways to keep my calcium intake up. I stumbled across these tasty chocolate calcium chews during my recent trip to TJs and was instantly excited.

How do you make sure your body is getting enough calcium?

I would love to hear any tips or tricks you have to share!

    I’m going to have to look for these! I try to consume calcium and vitamin D every day because it’s essential in our 20’s. My mom is only 52 and just broke a bone when she was out for a jog (she’s very fit) because of osteoporosis. Weak bones are no joke!

    Those look yummy. I know when I took multi-vitamins in a gummy format I never missed a day!

    To get more calcium I try to take a supplement, but I also drink milk and eat a lot of yogurt.

    You can get calcium from many things that are natural, its actually unnatural to drink cow’s milk as a human. Some good resources are coconut milk, almond milk, sesame seeds, any green vegetable such as kale or collard greens and so on. I haven’t had milk in over two years and haven’t missed it since.

    I probably get a lot of my calcium from cheese, but never liked drinking milk. I just started taking those Adora calcium chocolates that Whole Foods sells to make sure that I’m getting enough. They’re so good!

    I too have taken the Adora calcium chews, how do the ones from TJ’s compare to the Adora. I know you have taken both and which one do you like more?
    I eat yogurt every day with wheat germ, oatmeal and flax seeds to get my calcium plus an Adora, also enjoy cheese (dairy is ok for me).
