What Nutrients to “Chews” When Expecting #BeActiv

What Nutrients to Chews When Expecting BeActiv (1)

Approximately 68% of women are calcium deficient, but this matters even more when you’re pregnant because the developing baby needs calcium to build strong bones and teeth, as well as for a healthy heart, nerves, and muscles.

When a pregnant woman lacks dietary calcium (which is often the case), her developing baby draws this much-needed calcium directly from HER bones, which can impact the woman’s health later in life. Popular prenatal vitamins only have a small percentage of recommended the daily calcium.

The recommended amount of calcium during pregnancy is 1000mg daily and Viactiv Calcium Soft Chews are an easy and delicious way to make sure you’re getting the recommended amount. Available in milk chocolate and caramel flavors, these soft chews have 100% of your daily recommended value in just two chews—plus Vitamin D and K! They are each individually wrapped so you can even toss them in your purse so you don’t forget.

One Viactiv Calcium Soft Chew (500 mg of calcium and 500 IU of Vitamin D) taken twice daily provides 100% of the daily value of calcium for most women plus vitamins D and K.

Viactiv Calcium Soft Chews are intended to help achieve recommended daily dietary levels of these nutrients as a supplement to diet/food sources.

Viactiv is part of the three keys to healthy bones:  

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