Pregnancy is such an important time in your life, not only for the baby growing inside you but also yourself. Maintaining your health can be very difficult during pregnancy but is the key to a great pregnancy, labor, postpartum and the health of your baby.
Did you know approximately 68% of women are calcium deficient. Meeting your recommended 1000 mg of daily calcium during pregnancy is especially important because baby’s bones, teeth, heart, nerves and muscles depend on calcium for growth. That if you don’t include enough calcium in your daily diet, your baby will start drawing this nutrient from your own bones, putting your own bone health at risk.
Along with getting enough calcium during pregnancy, you should also make sure you are getting enough iron, vitamin D, folic acid and iodine, as well as other important things such as increased sleep, calories and getting some exercise. And of course set a little time out of each day to just sit and relax!
Most prenatal vitamins contain just 20-30% of the calcium you require daily. Adding #Viactiv Calcium Soft Chews are an easy and delicious way to make sure you’re getting the calcium you need. Available in milk chocolate or caramel flavors, two Viactiv Calcium Soft Chews have 100% of your daily recommended, plus Vitamin D and K which help with calcium absorption. Viactiv Calcium Soft Chews are intended to help achieve recommended daily dietary levels of these nutrients as a supplement to diet/food sources and do not replace the need for a prenatal vitamin.
I’ve had the opportunity to try both flavors, milk chocolate and caramel. They are both very easy to take, not like swallowing a big pill. I’d have to say my favorite flavor was milk chocolate only because I’m not a huge fan of caramel flavored stuff. And I’ve noticed my body takes to chew-able vitamins a lot better than swallowing pills and I’d rather have a happy tummy during pregnancy then having an upset one. They are individually wrapped so you can toss them in your purse or lunch, makes it easier to not forget to take them each day. Viactiv has 1/2 the calories and 1/2 the sugar compared to the leading calcium gummy supplement.
Viactiv Calcium Soft Chews are available nationwide supermarket, drugstores and major retailers, including CVS, Rite Aid, Target and Walmart.
