Calcium can be used as a remedy to lose weight. During recent research it is found that consumption of calcium can help to reduce the presence of fats in our body and will also help to manage our weight.
Researchers also revealed that adolescent girls who consume more calcium are weighted less and has less fats in their body as compared to the girls who intake same amount of calories through other sources. During previous Studies it was been proved that high calcium consumption blocks fat production in adults and children’s, this was the first research which shows that it might have the same effect in the body conscious preteen and teenage girls.
The research Experimental Biology held at San Diego, in 2003 included a mixed group of 321 girls from the age group nine to fourteen years. Each girl from this group recorded everything what they consumed and drank, including calcium or vitamin supplements for three days. Researchers also measured their physical activities, body fat, and weight. And it was resulted that the girls who consumed more calories and exercised less, weighted more and also had more body fat. And when the researchers compared the girls with same calorie intake, physical activity and size they found that girls who consumed more calcium on average weighed less. The calcium which the girls consumed in their daily diet came from the dairy products such as milk, cheese, butter etc. and it didn’t made any difference in their body weight or fat. And the increase of one serving of dairy like cup of milk, piece of cheese which contained about 300 mg of calcium, resulted in lower body weight and lower fat in abdominal.
