Calcium Supplementation Associated With Small, But Significant Weight Loss

June 1, 2011: 12:24 PM EST
British scientists who analyzed the results of seven clinical trials found “a small, significant reduction in body weight” of about 1.5 kg a year associated with calcium supplementation. The researchers also found evidence that taking a one gram dose of calcium as a daily dietary supplement was associated with a two kg reduction in body fat per year. The researchers concluded that the evidence from the clinical trials shows that calcium supplementation “generates small, statistically significant weight loss in overweight and obese individuals.” However, they added, “the clinical relevance of this finding is uncertain.”
