Offset weight gain in middle age with calcium supplements

The middle aged stand to benefit with calcium supplements, according to a recent study.Researchers at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center have been able to understand the link between calcium supplements and weight gain after analyzing the health statistics nearly 10,000 U.S men and women. The benefits of calcium supplements are observed in women more than men.

In the words of the authors "Although more evidence from randomized clinical trials is needed before calcium supplements can be recommended specifically for weight loss, this study suggests that calcium supplements taken for other reasons (e.g., prevention of osteoporosis) may have a small beneficial influence on reducing weight gain, particularly among women approaching midlife."
