TUMS & Calcium
Good health and your daily dose of calcium go hand in hand.
Most people think that TUMS is just an antacid. They’re only half right. TUMS is also a convenient calcium supplement too.
We all need calcium. It helps us develop strong bones, it helps regulate the heartbeat, and controls blood clotting as well as nerve and muscle functions. Not getting enough of it can increase the risk of serious health problems like osteoporosis, a bone weakness that can lead to fractures, pain and disability.
Most people don’t get enough.
55% of Americans aren't getting enough calcium from their diet. People think they’re getting the required amount of calcium by eating healthy or by taking multivitamins, but research shows that this may not be the case. After menopause, women are more vulnerable to bone loss and need to increase their calcium intake.
TUMS is a convenient source
While your daily diet is your primary source for calcium, you want to be sure you achieve adequate calcium intake. If you cannot meet your calcium intake goals, add TUMS to your daily menu. Taking TUMS with your meals is a safe, effective and affordable way to get more calcium. TUMS tablets are flavored, easy to chew and fast dissolving. For people who want more calcium every day — but who have trouble taking pills — TUMS can be a more pleasant, comfortable option.
