Calcium & Fat-Burning

Recent studies have shown that a diet supplemented with low-fat dairy calcium triggers a greater response for fat loss than one that is not supplemented or supplemented with smaller amounts. Diets high in dairy fats are a cause of obesity while those with low-fat calcium actually helped to burn more fat than without it.

Several studies have shown that calcium plays a key role in body weight regulation and especially on fat metabolism.

In a study conducted by researchers, mice were fed high amounts of fat and sugars for six weeks and all gained 27% of their weight in fat. Then, a select number were put on a diet which restricted the amount of calories available to them.

Furthermore, of those selected, some were given supplemental calcium along with their calories. Compared to the non-supplemented mice, which lost 8% of their body fat, the mice which were given the calcium lost 42% (over 5 times as much).

What is interesting is that dairy calcium actually had better fat-loss effects than the calcium obtained from other sources (69% versus 60%, respectively). Calcium plays a very important role in the storage, breakdown, and metabolism of fat tissue and this is why its presence helps in fat loss. The current recommended calcium intake is 1,000 to 1,300mg for women and 1,000 to 1,200mg for men each day.
