Adora Chocolate Calcium Supplement - Review

May is National Osteoporosis Awareness and Prevention month. Women fall short on calcium by at least 20%, getting only 500-700 mg per day, significantly less than the recommended amount, putting them at risk of osteoporosis. According to the National Osteoporosis Foundation, 10 million Americans are estimated to have osteoporosis and almost 34 million more are estimated to have low bone density. Nutritionist Heather Bauer, RD, CDN, author of Bread is the Devil (Amazon link below) offers these tips to decrease risk of osteoporosis:
  • Think of your bones as living, breathing tissue. They can be built up and broken down with certain determining factors. These factors include daily intake of at least 1,000mg of calcium supplemented with Vitamin D for optimal absorption and weight-bearing exercise.
  • Get your dose of calcium and sweetness with Adora Calcium Supplement discs made from rich, all-natural premium chocolate. They’ll satisfy a sweet tooth for milk or dark chocolate and provide your daily calcium requirements at only 30 calories per serving. Calcium is best absorbed in several doses, rather than all at once – this gives you a reason to indulge in an Adora treat morning and night!
  • By the time we hit our 30s, we stop naturally building bone mass and start losing it. Counteract this with anything that forces your body to defy gravity. Activities include dancing, jogging, tennis, even stair climbing. Make sure to avoid escalators and elevators!
  • Lifting weights at the gym gives you muscle tone, right? Well, calcium acts in the same way to keep your blood vessels toned. Calcium rich foods like milk, cheese, sardines, figs, and dark leafy greens like spinach can be tough to eat a lot of, so consider a calcium supplement (like Adora) if you’re not meeting the recommended daily value.
Adora Calcium Supplement in rich, premium, all-natural chocolate is produced by Thompson Brands, a chocolate company that has been renowned for great tasting quality chocolates since 1879. Thompson’s process for manufacturing Adora Calcium Supplements meets the utmost quality control and standards and is regulated by the U.S. Federal Drug Administration. The high quality calcium carbonate, vitamin D3, and magnesium all meet United States Pharmacopeia standards.
But how does it taste? Absolutely delicious! I definitely crave my calcium supplements now. I love both milk chocolate and dark chocolate, so I can't say either one is better than the other. Both just taste like candy to me. To get the daily calcium equal to two Adora, I'd have to eat 200 almonds every day, or 27 broccoli florets every day, or three glasses of milk every day. Although I like almonds and broccoli, I would much rather have two pieces of Adora rich, premium, all natural chocolate.
You can buy Adora Calcium Supplement at http://adoracalcium.com, at Whole Foods, at The Vitamin Shoppe, and other fine retailers. Be sure to follow Adora on Facebook and Twitter too!
