OK folks, we all know we want calcium in our diets (ladies--at least 1,000-1,200 mg per day) but did you know that the latest study findings suggest that it also promotes weight loss?
A recent study found that women who paired 1,800 mg of calcium daily with a moderate protein diet (15% of calories from protein) absorbed 2.5 times less fat that those who did not. For some, this delivered a three-pound loss per week. The reason: With this nutrient combo, calcium binds to more fat in the intestines, forming insoluble compounds that are easily excreted.
If you are not taking a calcium supplement yet check out our Life Time Calcium Citrate with vitamin D. Life Time Brand Calcium Citrate is the most absorbable calcium on the market. Calcium is also important for the prevention of osteoporosis. If you are a soda/pop drinker calcium is important because the phosphoric acid in the soda depletes the bones of calcium so a supplement is very important!
