Calcium is best known as an important mineral that your body needs for healthy bones, but it is also needed by the body for muscles, the nervous system, and heart. †1 Calcium supplements are needed when our diets do not contain enough calcium to meet our needs. Adequate calcium in a healthy diet may help prevent osteoporosis later in life but most adults, especially women, fall short of their daily calcium requirements.
Kirkland Signature™ Sugar Free Calcium Chews provide 500 mg per chew and are a convenient and delicious option to meet your daily calcium needs.
Calcium is necessary for building strong bones and teeth. †
A healthy diet with adequate calcium and regular exercise builds and maintains good bone health and may reduce the risk of osteoporosis later in life.
Vitamin D aids in the absorption of calcium. †
Vitamin K plays a role in bone mineralization. †

Great But the Caramel Flavor is Better!!!!!!!!!!!!
Pros: tastes good
"The chocolate flavor chews were my favorite way to get calcium down until the caramel flavor was introduced in Costco stores. I bought a bag of the caramel chews and my life changed. Wow! The flavor was so incredible. Unfortunately, I can't find the caramel flavor at any of the Costco's anymore. I'm devastated. I wish the caramel flavor was available at Costco.com at least!!!"
"I take 1200 mg of calcium daily. I sometimes forget my tablet in the AM. With Kirkland chews I can easily substitute one of these at home or elsewhere since I usually have a few in my purse. They are sugar free, easy to chew and swallow easily with or without water. The chews have Vit D and K which assist the Calcium."
"I bought these for my wife, she saw them advertized and thought they looked great. One problem, she has false teeth and she said the chews stuck to them. I always eat her mistakes and so I started using them and love them, they stick to my teeth a bit, but no more than any candy like that. I am really enjoying them"
"These taste good and are sugar free BUT the type of calcium is not the best absorbed by most people....calcium citrate is what I prefer. I will not buy it again for me but it has been a good choice for an elderly relative who has trouble swallowing pills."
"Only one problem with these - they are so good I want to eat all three chews at the same time. For absorption, you're only supposed to take 500-600 mgs per dose. But don't let that stop you from buying this great product!"
