New guideline okays calcium supplementation up to 2.5 grams daily
October 26 2016. On October 25, 2016, Annals of Internal Medicine revealed a new evidence-based guideline from the National Osteoporosis Foundation and the American Society for Preventive Cardiology which states that calcium from supplements or food that doesn't exceed the tolerable upper intake level of 2,000 to 2,500 mg per day is safe for the heart.
The updated guideline is the result of a review of 4 randomized trials and 27 studies conducted by a team from Tufts University Medical School. Among clinical trials there was no statistically significant difference in cardiovascular disease risk or mortality between subjects who received calcium in comparison with the placebo groups. No cohort study conclusively linked calcium intake—whether from diet, supplements or both—to cardiovascular disease or mortality from any cause.
