Calcium

Does calcium cause the body to retain fluid? I can't find any information.

Since this is not my area of expertise, I searched Google under the key words "calcium 'fluid retention'" to get these possible sources:

Use <Find> to search for calcium within these posts. It seems like calcium allows you to get rid of water.

I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
