Vowing to take better care of my health this year, I asked my doctor for recommendations of vitamins that I should take. She suggested that everyone should take a multi vitamin and to also incorporate calcium with vitamin D (especially women) in their daily intake of vitamins. She stressed taking calcium because we as women generally do not consume enough calcium on a daily basis and that this will help prevent osteoporosis and strengthen bones.
I had heard good things about the Nature Made brand so decided to try their new calcium with vitamin D liquid softgels. I do not have problems swallowing regular tablets but do prefer the ease of a geltab. This was extremely easy for me to swallow because there was no after taste.
My doctor also recommended that I should take at least 1000 mg a day and each of these softgels is 600 mg. The bottle suggests taking two softgels a day so I started slowly by taking one a day but now I do take this twice a day.
My hope is that by taking this and also my multi vitamin (along with eating right and exercising) that I will live a very long time to enjoy my son grow up! I do strongly recommend this brand.
