Virtues Of Calcium: Did You Know That Drinking Milk Will Help You Lose Weight?

Jul 21st 2014 at 10:04 PM

The 'bad press' that has surrounded in recent years to milk may touch an end as soon as the data are disseminated to a new study. Although many have linked obesity or digestive problems, among other conditions, it seems like there is nothing to increase their intake kilos off more easily. Apparently, the relationship between increased calcium intake and weight loss in dieters has again been endorsed in a new study conducted by Israeli researchers.

Confirmation of this 'old' scientific evidence does not surprise experts. This is the case of Carmen Gómez Candela, head of the Clinical Nutrition and Dietetics, University Hospital La Paz (Madrid), who declares "This trial is good news because it provides more information about an event we know from years and has just been backed with a test review. “It is striking, however, that despite "the contribution of dairy in weight loss, the dieters often significantly reduce their intake. These patients are precisely those who must increase their daily calcium dose. Should be search skimmed milk, but are enriched. "

Overweight participants

The new study, published in the latest American Journal of Clinical Nutrition has been developed over two years with more than 300 men and women between 40 and 65 years are overweight participating in a study comparing the effects on weight through the Mediterranean diet, low fat or low in carbohydrates. Regardless of these, the researchers found that those most milk consumed per day (equivalent to 580 mg of calcium) more weight lost compared with those who carried a lower intake of these products (an average of 150 mg of calcium).

Specifically, and after two years, those who consumed more calcium a day lost an average of six kilos more, compared to those who ate less amounts of this nutrient.

The authors also found that those with higher levels of vitamin D in the blood were also lost more weight kilos. Danita Shamar, Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (Israel) University and lead author of the research acknowledges that "they knew that people weightier had lower levels of vitamin D, but this is the first study that actually shows that older concentrations are associated with more lost kilos. "

Also argue that the daily intake of calcium "helps increase fat excretion in feces" and insist that "more studies to clarify the causal relationship of these factors are necessary."
