Calcium is an essential ingredient of bone that must constantly be replenished.*. Vitamin D contributes to bone strength as proper levels create optimum conditions for bone formation.*.

"Having Chews take the edge off of multi pill consumption, plus they are a tasty treat when hunger hits. I do enjoy the caramel, I haven't been able to order that in caramel, as a suggestion you might consider adding other flavors."
"These chews taste great and have a nice texture. At 15 calories each, it's a great way to get your daily calcium without downing more tablets -- 2 chews provide 1 gram of calcium, or 100% of daily recommended. Since I'm a chocolate fan, these also give a sense of satisfaction that typically only comes with eating something naughty, if you know what I mean."
"I love these calcium chews! Very chocolate-y, no chalky after-taste, & tastes more like a treat than a supplement. I will say that it is very sweet & tends to leave my throat with a sugary-feeling coating; so I prefer to chase it with some water or milk after enjoying it. Still highly recommended."
"A sample of this came in one of my orders. I soon ordered it BOGO. I take it mid-day as some supplements aren't to be taken with calcium so taking those early, saving these chocolate chews mid day, works. These also have Vit D3 - a bonus for those days I''m mostly indoors!!"
"I buy this product for my teenage grandson, since he consumes very little dairy and is primarily vegan. He loves the flavor and it's never a problem to get him to enjoy his "daily dose." Plus it's quite economical!"
"My doctor said it was time for Calcium and Vitamin D supplement to my diet. I tried several tablets and they were too hard to swallow. This is a pleasant tasting chewable and I look forward to eating one a day."
