Resource Summary

Clinical Question:
Does calcium (Ca+) supplementation contribute to increased risk of myocardial infarction (MI) and other cardiovascular disease (CVD)?

Bottom-line:
The present evidence suggests that calcium supplementation^ particularly ≥1000mg/day^ may lead to an increase risk of MI. This evidence is poor and the risk^ if present^ is likely <1 percent.
