    I hate drinking milk so I am sure that I could benefit from this product! Thanks for sharing!

      We’re opposites. 😛 I love the taste of milk and thinking that drinking it will give me even more health benefits (in particular, stronger bones). There are more negation studies on that but I don’t mind. Sure, you can try this product and see the results.

      Exactly. I took calcium chewables for kids when I was younger — those shaped like Hello Kitty’s face and Flinstones characters as well. I am excited to try Calchews this time. 🙂

      I don’t think anything can be natural with supplements these days. What matters is that taking them is safe (with no side effects). Taking Calchews will prevent bone loss and that will be good for us.

    I should probably try these. I’m having a lot of trouble with arthritis,and someone told me calcium would help. I’m not sure why, but at this point, I’ll try almost anything at least once.

      Yes, calcium has a lot of benefits. Juvenile arthritis is related to bone loss in children as well as adults. If you are not spending time doing enough physical activities, think it over and consider incorporating regular exercise to your lifestyle. Adapt to a diet rich in calcium and vitamin D to build adequate bone mass and reduce the risk of future fracture.

    I’m the worst when it comes to taking supplements but I really am aware of the food I eat – so I would like to think I make up for it.

      If you don’t like taking calcium supplements, it’s better to be more conscious of food you eat. Getting calcium-rich food by natural food intake is still a lot better.

    We drink a lot of milk. We are a family of 4 and we go through a gallon a day! But that being said we do not allow soda!

      Same here. I don’t drink soda in normal occasions because I don’t like the feeling of getting bloated with acid. Also, I’m aware of the harmful effects soft drinks have on our system.

    We add a lot of leafy greens into our meals as a great way to sneak added calcium (yep, they’re full of calcium!) and plenty of other health benefits into our diet.

      It’s great that you’re all not lactose-intolerant. For those whose bodies can’t accept much dairy, vegetables, soy fruit juices and some cereals are also good alternatives to calcium sources.

      Take calcium supplements as necessary but I won’t deny the fact that the safest and probably the most effective source of calcium for strong bones and overall health is diet.

    First sentence: should it be “world” instead of “word”?

    Anyways, I notice that the market of this product is for women. I believe men are prone to bone diseases too. I guess the frmula here is Zumba+Calchew=Healthy bones

    Reply
    • Rochkirstin Santos

      Thanks, Shirgie! I have corrected that one.
      You got the formula right! 🙂 I guess the reason why there’s more focus put on women is that there are more women affected and found to be having osteoporosis than men. Based on researches, the ratio is 4:1.

    I never knew that Calchew’s had a lot of benefits. I keep it in my bag as a candy in case I feel like I need a bit of candy but I never knew it had health benefits as well

    It is so important for women to get a proper amount of calcium and sometimes it is hard to get it in your diet. Calchews are a great way to supplement.

      If you’re generally healthy and eat a wide variety of foods, including fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes, low-fat dairy products, lean meats and fish, you likely don’t need supplements. Else, you’re gonna need CalChews to save the day! 🙂
