Calcium, Obesity and Diabetes

| Jul 1, 2004

We have known for years that an adequate calcium intake can help prevent osteoporosis. Current research suggests it may keep waistlines trim as well.

Ideally, dietary calcium should come from whole foods, including dairy products. As with any recommendation for dietary changes, it’s advisable to try to substitute the calcium-containing foods for foods with less nutrient density, such as soft drinks. Extra calories, even if they contain calcium, could still cause weight gain.

If you need a calcium supplement to help you reach recommended amounts, choose one with proven reliability and the AUSP@ on the label. This means it is less likely to contain harmful ingredients and it will dissolve more easily in the stomach.
