A calcium supplement of 1500 mg per day for three months does not cause weight loss in overweight women, does not increase the burning of fat, and does not increase the release of fat from fat cells according a study from the University of California in Davis, California, USA.
Conclusion: Calcium has no effect on weight
“Calcium supplementation for 3 months… had no effect on [body weight, body fat,] rates of lipid oxidation [the burning of fat] or lipolysis [release of fat from fat cells], in these overweight women,” the authors of the study concluded.
