There are more and more people who are specifically Vitamin D deficient. Those range from adults around 50 years and older, those with limited sun exposiure, african americans and those that use SPF 8 or greater on a constant basis. Without Vitamin D our bones become brittle and have more of chance at breaking. While the sun is a good source along with various foods it is not always possible to obtain the right amount you need. Os-cal chewables taken twice a day with food provide you with the 1000 mg of calcium that is recommended for healthy bones.
They are chewable so you will be tasting them as opposed to swallowing them whole like most vitamins. but they have a very pleasant Lemon Chiffon flavor that is appealing to your taste buds. We all know you want something to taste good especially if you will be taking it on a regular basis. this is just the ticket. Don't take chances run out to your local pharamcy and pick up a bottle of Os-Cal Chewables and start your way to a better you, today!
Its hard to really judge the effectivness of an item like this as it really doesn't provide a visible effect. I can say however from experience (taking two a day) that the lemon flavor takes away from the otherwise chaulky taste you get from most chewable tabs. Also I have heard from several people that when they take this item their bones actually hurt. I have not had that effect in my bodys reaction to them. Everything seems to be going along just fine with my bones. I look at it as being better safe than sorry.
