Bone Health & Your Teen

If your teen girls are anything like mine, it seems impossible to make sure they are eating healthy, and getting the vitamins and nutrients that they need. Did you know more  than 85% of teen girls have calcium-deficient diets? With girls, this comes at a crucial time since 95% of the bone building occurs before she’s 20!

Our bones are instrumental to our health and longevity. Keeping our bones healthy is one of the key steps to maintaining a healthy immune system, which protects us from epidemics that seem to be lurking everywhere.


Calcium is a mineral that gives strength to your bones; calcium is essential not only for your bones, but other body functions such as blood clotting, and nerve and muscle function. During the teen years bones are still developing so that they’ll be  strong later in life (with everything else isn’t quite as strong). It’s important to get plenty of calcium in your diet because if your body doesn’t get the calcium it needs it takes it from the only other source in your body: your bones.

Since we know that getting teens to eat right is nearly impossible, which make Viactiv Calcium chews the perfect option to to make sure your teen is getting all the  calcium their body needs.



What  I love about Viactiv Calcium chews is they are easy and convenient to take; not to mention they are the #1 doctor recommended calcium chew. They are available in two delicious soft chew flavors (milk chocolate and caramel). They are individually wrapped which I love because I can just toss one in her lunch bag so she can have one  during the day, and then another after dinner (it helps they taste pretty darn good too!)


Even just one Viactiv chew per day (500 mg of calcium) can help her with her bone health and #BeActiv . Teen girls require 1,300 mg of calcium –  (two Viactiv calcium soft chews daily contribute 1000 mg of daily of that). You can help her get the the other 300 mg through yougurt,  fruit smoothies, etc.

    I think I will have to give these a try. Maybe if our girls see me eating them they would be game to try em. We can always use more calcium.
