The aim of this study was to estimate the influence of calcium, magnesium, iron and zinc contents in drinking water on chosen parameters of nutritional status of these minerals in 164 elder people, 75-80 age, living in Warsaw region. Blood, hair and saliva were collected to assess the calcium, magnesium, iron and zinc nutritional status, while the samples(More)
BACKGROUND Many studies demonstrate that the elderly consume a nutritionally inadequate diet that includes deficiencies in macro- and microelements; iron and zinc being significant examples of the former. OBJECTIVES To assess the adequacy of dietary iron and zinc intakes in the elderly. MATERIAL AND METHODS The study was conducted on n = 102 elderly(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to assess the intake of calcium, magnesium, iron, zinc, potassium and sodium with drinking water among 19-26 years old women, students at the Warsaw University of Life Sciences (SGGW). MATERIAL AND METHODS Data on intake of drinking water and food products were collected based on 4-day record method. Information about(More)
PURPOSE The aim was to investigate the effect of iron or combined iron/zinc supplementation on rat liver antioxidant status. METHODS The 6-week male Wistar rats were examined in 3 stages: (1) 4-week adaptation to the diets (C-control AIN-93M diet, D-iron deficient and R-with 50% reduction in all vitamin and mineral amounts); (2) 4-week supplementation(More)
The effect of iron and iron/zinc supplementation on their levels in tissues of rats fed initially one of the three following regimen: C - control AIN-93 diet, D - iron deficient diet and R - diet with 50% reduction of all vitamins and minerals was investigated. The study was conducted on 6-week male Wistar rats, in 3 stages: (1) 4-week adaptation to the(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the changes in iron apparent absorption (IAA%) during and after iron and zinc supplementation in rats. The study was conducted on 6-week old male Wistar rats in 3 stages: 4-week period of adaptation to the control (C) and iron deficient (D) diets (stage I); 4-week period of supplementation with 10-time more iron(More)
The aim of this research was to investigate whether combined iron/zinc supplementation is more beneficial than iron supplementation alone from the perspective of the lipid profile in rats. The study was conducted on 6-week male Wistar rats in 3 stages: (1) 4-week adaptation to the diets: C (AIN-93M) and D (mineral mix without iron); (2) 4-week(More)
BACKGROUND & AIMS Studies on the impact of supplementation cessation are lacking. We investigated the effect of iron and iron/zinc supplementation and cessation of this intervention on iron status parameters. METHODS The study was conducted on 6-week male Wistar rats, in 3 stages: 4-week adaptation to the diets: C--control (AIN-93M) and D--iron deficient(More)
