Since the past week when I felt stiffness after some spring cleaning, I decided to get myself some supplements. My friend commented that we really need more calcium as we aged and I was also worried since I know how much my teeth seemed to have shrunk and I now have gaps in my front sets and I can not grip anything on my front teeths!
I really cannot stand those Calcium supplements and normally I rather take those that are the effervasent tablets such as Sandoz. But in the past year, I have not been buying them. So when I was out at the supermarket, I decided to try out the new Anlene concentrate. It was only a 125ml pack and each box came in 4 packs. I chilled it for two days in the fridge and tried it one morning. I must say it tasted really nice. The benefits for this is that it is suppose to have about 4x Calcium of regular milk. The taste of it is slightly like stirring lots of full cream milk powder with little water. So it has a little sweet taste which is pretty pleasant.
I've tried Anlene Hi Calcium fresh milk in those cartons but somehow I thought it tasted 'rubbery' and watered down.. ewww And I really cannot be bothered to make that glass of milk in the morning because I rather have my coffee. So I thought this one is ready to drink and no preparation involved for lazy bums like me.
4 box of 125mls cost S$3.80. I might give this a try and see if it helps my stiff knees and aching backs... ouch again..
