Adora® Calcium Supplement Review & Giveaway

Tuesday, June 26, 2012
Did you know that roughly 10 million Americans suffer from osteoporosis? The majority of those 10 million are women. Females fall short on calcium intake by as much as 20%. The recommended daily calcium intake for women is 1,000 mg, but most women typically get between 500 mg and 700 mg per day, putting them at risk for osteoporosis.

My mother suffered from osteoporosis, and I often worry that I, too, will be diagnosed at one point in my life. By the time we reach our 30s, we stop naturally building bone mass, and we start to lose it. Exercise and weight training can counteract this natural process of decline, but sometimes we need more in the form of a supplement. I do exercise, but because I don't eat a lot of foods that are calcium-dense, I must take a supplement to achieve the RDA (recommended daily allowance) of calcium.

Talk to your female friends about calcium supplements, and you're likely to be met with wrinkled noses. Yeah, calcium supplements are anything but sexy. I've tried many calcium supplements over the years, but I've never found one that "wowed" me. They are either too chalky, too large, too mushy, or just plain tasteless.

Fortunately, there's a tasty new way to get your calcium and satisfy your chocolate cravings. Yes, I  just went there...calcium and chocolate together! And I've finally been "wowed"!

Adora® Calcium Supplement is rich, premium all-natural chocolate that takes the daily dose of calcium taking to a whole new level. Rather than dreading taking your daily calcium supplement, you'll be looking forward to it when it's Adora®. My favorite is the dark smooth and creamy.

Each indulgent disk has only 30 calories per serving and provides up to 50% of the RDA. Plus, each serving includes vitamin D3 and magnesium for optimal absorption of calcium. In conjunction with a well-balanced diet, vitamin D and adequate calcium intake may reduce the risk of osteoporosis.
