Study Finds No Association Between Calcium, Heart Disease

Some research suggests that excessive calcium intake may be associated with a higher risk of a cardiovascular event. However, a recent study suggests that there are “no compelling associations” between taking calcium supplements and a higher risk of cardiovascular disease events.


Participants in the study included 6,236 men and women between the ages of 45 and 84 who took part in the Multi-Ethnic Study of Atherosclerosis. Over the 10.3 years of the study, the researchers recorded 208 heart attacks and 641 cardiovascular events. After examining the data, the researchers found no association between calcium supplement intake and increased risk of a cardiovascular event.


Researchers from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill conducted the study. It was published online ahead of print on July 14, 2016, in Nutrition, Metabolism & Cardiovascular Diseases.


Calcium is best known for its effect on bone health, but previous studies suggest it can also help with weight loss, skin health, and reducing the risk of stroke. Some studies have even suggested that calcium intake is associated with increased longevity.


Calcium absorption decreases as we age, so it is especially important to make sure you are getting enough. While the more common types of calcium come from dairy products, previous studies suggest that algae-derived calcium may in fact be more effective than more common types of calcium.
