Recent reports struck fear into the hearts of women (literally) when it was purported that calcium supplements raised a woman's risk of heart disease.
However, a review of data from the Nurses' Health Study involving over 74,000 women showed no increased risk of heart disease in women taking over one (1) gram of calcium supplements daily.
This study showed that women who took calcium had higher levels of physical activity, smoked less, and had lower trans-fat compared with those who did not take calcium supplements.
Calcium supplements, with a healthy lifestyle, are safe and effective for preserving bone and cardiovascular health.
