review of the effects of calcium supplementation on body weight

A systematic review of the effects of calcium supplementation on body weight

Abstract:

Animal studies and epidemiological studies have suggested that Ca supplementation (with Ca supplements or dairy products) may be associated with weight loss in human adults. We aimed to assess whether any association was present by reviewing relevant randomized controlled trials in human subjects. The study was a systematic review and subsequent meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials that used Ca supplementation as an intervention in persons 18 or more years of age, and that reported body weight as a final outcome. A total of thirteen randomized controlled trials were included in the meta-analysis. There was no association between the increased consumption of either Ca supplements or dairy products and weight loss after adjusting for differences in baseline weights between the control and intervention groups (P=0·19 and 0·85, respectively). We therefore concluded that Ca supplementation has no statistically significant association with a reduction in body weight.

    Cheers for the article. Is there any negative effects of not eating enough calcium?
