Does your daily routine involve calcium supplements? A study shows that it can damage your heart, but eating calcium-rich meals can preserve it. The Journal of the American Heart Association emphasized how the frequent calcium supplement intake can pose a risk to one’s cardiovascular health. Women are more likely to take calcium supplements because they believe it can help reduce the risk of osteoporosis, and some even take them without a prescription. Research shows that devouring calcium supplements is not the best or accurate method to increase your bone mineral density. Moreover, the buildup from the supplements can potentially block your arteries, blood flow, and lead to a heart attack over time. The researchers, in a duration of ten years, followed the lives of 2,700 individuals. Whether a prescription was written or not, it is in your best interest to lower your consumption of calcium supplements from this day forward.
