      When my doctor told me to take calcium supplements, I tried several brands. I hate swallowing big pills, and most of the calcium products I found were made into huge tablets. I needed a higher potency, and taking most chewable brands only gave me half the calcium I needed, and since I had to take more of them, they ended up being really expensive. I was happy when I discovered the Solgar brand which makes a coconut flavored calcium chewable.

      Although each wafer only contained 250 mg, and I had to take two, the bottle had 120 so it was a months supply– for much less than I had been paying for other chewables. The one potential problem with the product was that it was made with cane


      sugar. I am diabetic, so I have to be careful about how many carbohydrates and sugars I consume.

      I did not know if this supplement was going to cause a spike in my blood sugar, but I was willing to take the chance. I thought if it did cause a problem to take both wafers at once, I could split the dose up, thus lessening the impact on my glucose readings. I love coconut flavor, so I was excited to try these– but not expecting too much, since they are a supplement, not a candy.

      As it turned out, they might as well have been a candy. They are incredibly sweet and I loved them! The coconut flavor is strong, not the wimpy barely there flavor that you get even with ...


      • most coconut flavored candies. They are dry, and have a bit of a chalky texture, but I was satisfied that they were pleasant enough to take despite the texture.

        When I first took the two at once, I immediately wondered about the blood sugar impact, because these tasted very sweet– much sweeter than most flavored supplements, and I have used quite a few– including gummy vitamins and even chocolate with supplements included. This was just really, really sweet– so I took my blood sugar and found that there had been a raise of about twenty five points. This was a problem that was easily solved.

        I took one wafer in the morning, and one at night. This knocked the carb level down enough that it was barely noticeable on my readings.

        /> I took the product for about four months, before discovering that the store where I was buying them was no longer going to carry them.

        I then had to look for a place online to order them, but was disappointed that I would have to pay shipping costs. This made the product much less affordable, and I was faced with having to make the difficult but practical decision of going back to tablets. Needless to say, I was bummed out.

        I miss my coconut wafers. If I ever find them at a decent price with free shipping, I will definitely stock up. I recommend these for anyone who loves coconut and has to take calcium.

        If you don’t have to pay shipping, they are an awesome deal.
