by Robert Baird


Obesity is a problem that has plagued the society in recent times and it has been revealed that in the United States of America itself, a huge section of the adult population, estimated at 65% are overweight. It is even more frightening to notice that it is a growing trend which is also affecting children too at large with the increase of fast food and junk food centers. There are several harmful effects of being overweight, especially because of the fact that it endangers one to being susceptible to contracting fatal diseases like cancer and heart ailments. In this case, the only possible remedy is trying to attain weight loss. Today the markets are flooded with a plethora of weight loss supplements and while most of these assure quick weight loss, an overwhelming majority of them are useless and ineffective in aiding weight loss. Much on the contrary they actually end up affecting the body and its organs adversely. Therefore, in most case, people try to resort to certain natural supplements to ensure weight loss. But it is unknown to many that calcium is a very effective element in aiding weight loss and sufficient calcium consumption, in moderate amounts as required by the body is very helpful in causing weight loss. The fact that calcium can be so helpful as a weight loss supplement has been revealed only recently through various experiments and it has been proved that calcium can revise the metabolism of the fat cells thereby causing release of fat rather than its accumulation in the body thus leading to weight loss. If there is insufficient calcium requirement in the body, then metabolism is slower and fat burning is less ensuring weight gain. Moreover, calcium content within the body is also evidenced to reduce hunger cravings thus ensuring weight loss.

It has been estimated that an average American requires a total calcium intake of about 600 to 700 milligrams though these are average figures. In case of a calcium deficiency thus individuals can include consumption of fishes like sardines and salmon and yoghurt, raw cheese and butter but definitely in moderate proportions as too much of these ingredients can actually increase weight. There are also available various calcium supplements like calcium citrate, calcium carbonate, calcium gluconate and calcium phosphate. These are some of the best absorbed forms of calcium and hence are extremely beneficial for attaining weight loss.
