NEW CVS Calcium Soft Chews Active Nutrition for Women are my latest purchase on my vitamin kick. Part of my New Year’s Resolutions this year was to start taking better care of my body. Eating more protein, getting more sleep and taking my vitamins. For about eleven years I struggled with my health and it affected my bone strength. I broke the same ankle upwards of four times, broke my wrist and had a few lucky misses. As I try to avoid animal products, I rarely drink milk so I figured it was time for a supplement.
CVS Calcium Chews have 500 mg of calcium plus vitamins D and K with 1000 IU vitamin D per chew. With only 20 calories per serving, 6% of your daily iron, only 2 grams of sugar and less than 1% of your daily sodium I would call this a win! With two flavors: milk chocolate and caramel (stay tuned for a review on the caramel) you can’t lose. The milk chocolate flavor isn’t overbearingly sweet like other vitamins I have tried. My only complaint is that they can leave a bit of a metallic aftertaste that can stick around for a while, so I usually take them right before I brush my teeth in the morning. Other than that I have very few complaints. They are small enough to pop into your mouth in a single bite and don’t take a year and a half to chew, which is a plus.
I really like these new vitamins and give them a solid “Yea!”
