Calcium and Cardiovascular Disease

The National Osteoporosis Foundation and the American Society for Preventive Cardiology formed an expert panel and completed a detailed review of all published research evaluating the effects of calcium intake from food sources and or supplements with or without vitamin D on the risk of heart attacks, strokes and death.

The review confirms that there does not appear to be any harmful or beneficial effects of calcium and or vitamin D on the risk of heart disease or stroke or on the likelihood of death in healthy adults.
