Did You Know About Calcium Supplements?

Did you know about calcium supplements?

Several years ago I broke some ribs. Apparently I had bronchitis and didn't know it. The amount of coughing I did somehow cracked or broke my ribs. (They either broke directly from the coughing or cracked and then broke from the activity I was doing.) Not long after that I also broke a toe. From doing nothing except maybe running. My doctor said I was too young for this and recommended that I start and stay on a regular calcium supplement. I have to take a minimum of 1500 mg each day. Some days I do better than others at remembering. I especially like the calcium chews (the ones without artificial flavors and such.) These are almost like a treat after dinner!
