I received Viactiv products for my own personal use. All opinions, text and experiences are my own.”

Did you make a resolution to be more active in 2015? While I don’t really make resolutions, I do try to set goals for myself. One of them involves getting out of my chair more often! I work 10+ hours a day on my computer. As a result, my chronic back problems are even more, well, chronic. I hurt all over all the time. My doctor told me that one of the best ways to help myself is by getting up at least once an hour and moving.

It’s a small thing, but it’s my way of being more active! Sometimes the small things make the biggest difference of all. Really, I’m working my way up to being able to go hiking again with my son. A couple of years ago, we spent a lot of time exploring the falls. This year, I’d love to take my son hiking along the Delaware Water Gap trails. You can see some truly amazing views!

Viactiv wants to help everyone have a more active 2015 (and beyond)! Strong bones play a major role in keeping us active, and calcium plays a major role in strong bones. Unfortunately, around 70% of women aren’t getting enough calcium! For teens, that number is even higher!According to a 2010 study published in The Journal of Nutrition, 86% of teen girls do not get enough calcium in their daily diets.

I received an awesome package filled with Viactiv products, including super delicious Viactiv Chocolate Calcium chews, Sugar-Free Chocolate Chews, Caramel Chews and Gummies. My favorite, of course, are the chocolate. I love Viactiv because they make it so easy to get my daily recommended amount of calcium. They’re part of a three-step process to healthier bones.

  • Obtaining an adequate daily dose of calcium from your diet
  • Regular bone strengthening exercises
  • Supplementing when diet is not enough

For me, I definitely have to supplement. While I do love calcium-laden foods, I know I’m not getting enough. Also, since I had a hysterectomy, my calcium needs are a bit higher than the average woman my age (20! Not really, almost double that, but not quite). I love that Viactiv isn’t just another pill sitting in yet another bottle that I have to remember to take. Instead, each chew is individually wrapped. That means I can toss a bunch in a bag in my purse for those days when I’m out and about.

Viactiv Calcium Soft Chews are the #1 doctor-recommended calcium supplement chew. Just one taken twice daily gives you 100% of the recommended amount for most women. Plus you get vitamins D & K!

If you’re more of a gummy fan, you’ll love the Viactiv Gummies. They come in assorted flavors like tropical strawberry, peach-mango and pineapple fruit flavors in each bottle. Two Viactiv Gummies taken twice daily gives you 100% of the daily value of calcium, plus vitamin D. The Gummies do not contain gluten or dairy. They’re made for any age, so they’re perfect for teen girls too!
