How Calcium Can Boost Weight Loss

Most of us are aware that calcium is an essential nutrient for the growth of teeth and bones… and for the prevention of osteoporosis. But we have some fantastic news for you…. Calcium is milking the title of the greatest fat-burner around!

 

Tell me more

Calcium affects how the body breaks down, absorbs, and stores fat. Study results have shown that on a high-calcium versus a low-calcium diet (with exactly the same calories and fat content) your body absorbs twice as much fat on the low-calcium diet; in other words, fat excretion is doubled on the high-calcium diet. The low-calcium diet seems to store fat rather than burn it. The important thing to note is that with a high-calcium diet, it is not just about weight control and weight loss, it’s about body fat and reducing the percentage of it.

 

Where can I get some?

Calcium is found in dairy products, dried legumes, dried figs, broccoli, most dark-green leafy vegetables, and soft fish bones like those in canned salmon. However, many people may only be able to get sufficient calcium from supplements.  If you do opt for supplements, you may find yourself constipated, in which case you need to take your calcium with some magnesium. Furthermore, you shouldn’t take other medications immediately following your calcium supplements as they can easily interfere.

 

Dairy calcium is ideal

Numerous studies have shown that dairy calcium is more effective in reducing body fat than other forms of calcium because of the other nutrients found in milk products that act in synergy with calcium to reduce fat more efficiently. A recent study in obese adults showed that increasing calcium intake by the equivalent of two dairy servings per day could reduce the risk of obesity by as much as 70 percent!
