It's no secret that I love dark chocolate, but sometimes I wonder if my love for the antioxidant-packed stuff comes at the expense of other, slightly more nutritious foods. Is there a way to fulfill my craving for chocolate while obtaining even more health benefits from the food I'm eating? Yes, there is thanks Adora Calcium Supplements.
These delicious little disks come in Dark and Milk Chocolate, and I of course chose the former. I wasn't sure what to expect from the supplement; I've had Viactiv Chocolate Supplements, for example, and I find them to be good but not great - I'm not into the whole chewy-chocolate thing, so that's probably why. When I have chocolate, I want it to be melt-in-your-mouth, not chewable. With Adora, however, I didn't have that problem. Each disk provides not only 50% of your daily RDA for calcium, it also provides a huge hit of delicious chocolate flavor. Premium chocolate flavor, at that. Yum!
Each disk provides 500 mg of calcium and 100 IU of vitamin D (25% of the RDA). There's also 30 calories, 2 grams of total fat, 1 gram of which is saturated no protein and 3 grams of carbohydrates which includes 2 grams of sugars.
I buy my Adora Dark Chocolate Calcium Supplements from Whole Foods, where a 30-pack is $6.99. The only downside: try not to eat too many at once - these are supplements, after all!
