Effect of Calcium Supplementation on Blood Pressure in Overweight or Obese Women
Soodeh Shockravi, Mohammad T. Jalali, Mohammad Rokn and Majid Karandish

Abstract:
The aim of this trial was to determine the effect of short term calcium supplementation for 30 days on systolic and diastolic blood pressure in overweight or obese women. A double blind randomized clinical trial was conducted in 44 overweight or obese women (age: 25 ±6 years) assigned to 1000 mg day-1 elemental calcium or placebo groups. Systolic and diastolic blood pressures were measured using digital wrist monitor at baseline and after the intervention. Dietary calcium and energy intakes were estimated using 24 h recall for 3 days. No significant differences were observed in age, blood pressure, calcium and energy intakes between the groups at the baseline. No differences were observed between blood pressures before and after the intervention and also between the study groups. It seems that short term calcium supplementation (1000 mg day-1) would not have any significant effect on blood pressure in overweight or obese women.
