    • I don’t drink much cow’s milk but I eat lots of greens, almonds, broccoli and fortified soy milk. I also do light weight training nearly every day which helps to build bone density. I’ve had a density test which came out great. I’ll have another post menopause. My grandma had horrible osteoporosis. Mary - viactiv is good.

      Important to to make sure you have enough vitamin D with the calcium for absorption. Also good to balance the calcium supplements with magnesium.

    • I do NOT drink milk. However, I do drink IsaCalcium Drink from Isagenix. I usually drink it right before going to bed. It’s formulated for easy absorption and maximum bioavailability, & provides more than three times the amount of calcium found in a glass of milk along with other nutrients for healthy bones and optimal health! It tastes like strawberries and cream, is lactose free, and has only 1 gram of sugar. Wouldn’t go without my calcium! And Isagenix just came out with Ageless Actives with contains 1,000IU per serving of this "sunshine" vitamin. Vitamin D3 is the active form needed to elevate blood levels. This clinically effective dose supports bone health, immune health and cardiovascular health. And also contains COQ10 (plays in the health of cells and tissues of the heart, brain, liver, kidneys and muscles),Resveratrol (found to prevent age-related and obesity-related cardiovascular decline), Adaptogens, wolfberry, ashwagandha and turmeric,which work synergistically to rejuvenate the entire body.

    • You guys have some great ideas. I just went for my annual wellness check, and the doc. said I’m not getting enough calcium, even though I take a calcium supplement and do the whole yogurt, green leafy veggies thing. BUT - as Cynthia said, the Vitamin D - that’s what I’ve been neglecting.

      My doc. also said that a Vitamin D supplement (D3, thanks, Rose)is better than trying to get the “D” from the actual sun. Rose, you drink sounds awesome. I’m going to check it out. Also the Viactiv.

      Namaste,

    • OMgosh, Coralee, I just went to the “MilkSucks.com” site you noted, and as of this moment in time, I am never having another drop of it. I had no idea! I can’t thank you enough for posting it.

      Off to the store today to get some soy milk!

      Namaste,
      Suzann
