[Comparative effects of magnesium deficiency and overload on calcium and phosphorus metabolism in the growing pig].

This study was designed to assess the influence of dietary magnesium on calcium and phosphorus metabolism in growing pigs. 18 4-month-old pigs received either an Mg-deficient (40 ppm), an Mg overload (5,600 ppm) or a control Mg diet (1,000 ppm) for 70 days. The following parameters were measured: kinetics of plasma concentrations of Ca, phosphates, Mg and… CONTINUE READING
