The effects of calcium gluconate on the utilization of magnesium and nephrocalcinosis in male Wistar rats made magnesium-deficient by adding excess dietary phosphorus (1.195 g of phosphorus/100 g of diet) and calcium (1.04 g of calcium/100 g of diet) were compared with the effects of calcium carbonate. The effects of dietary magnesium concentration on the magnesium status and nephrocalcinosis were also examined. Adding excess dietary phosphorus and calcium decreased the apparent magnesium…

Effect of dietary mineral sources and oil content on calcium utilization and kidney calcification in female Fischer rats fed low-protein diets.

Kidney calcification was proportional to the dietary oil content in the 10% dietary protein group, reflecting the calcium content of the kidney, and the different mineral sources differentially increased kidney mineral accumulation.

Influence of graded magnesium deficiencies on white blood cell counts and lymphocyte subpopulations in rats.

A threshold effect for increased leukocytes during a Mg deficiency of four weeks is demonstrated, demonstrating the influence that acute and moderate Mg deficiencies have on bloodLeukocytes at high and low dietary phosphorus levels.

The effects of various organic acids on phytate phosphorus utilization in chicks.

NaGLU, CaGlu, glucono-delta-lactone, Alimet, and citric acid, but not fumaric acid or EDTA, improved phytate P utilization in chicks fed a corn-soybean meal diet.




Mineral utilization by rats fed various commercially available calcium supplements or milk.

There were few differences in the utilization of calcium by Rats fed milk or supplements containing only calcium lactate, chelated calcium, oyster shells and calcium carbonate, but magnesium retention in bone was greater among rats fed milk.

Interaction of calcium and phosphate decreases ileal magnesium solubility and apparent magnesium absorption in rats.

It is concluded that increased intakes of calcium and phosphate decrease magnesium absorption by the formation of an insoluble calcium-magnesium-phosphate complex in the intestinal lumen.

Dietary calcium chloride vs. calcium carbonate reduces urinary pH and phosphorus concentration, improves bone mineralization and depresses kidney calcium level in cats.

Urinary pH and phosphorus concentration were lower in cats and kittens fed diets with calcium chloride instead of calcium carbonate, and body weight gain and tibia growth in the kittens tended to be greater after feeding the diets withcium chloride.

Interactions of lactose with calcium, magnesium and zinc in rats.

The effect of lactose hydrolysis on the absorption of 45Ca was similar whether rats were fed only one meal of the milk-based diets or were fed the diets chronically, and the rats fed supplemental lactose or unhydrolyzed milk retained more magnesium and zinc in bone.

It is suggested that calcium decreases magnesium absorption by a nonspecific reduction in membrane permeability to solutes that induce net water flow and are consistent with the concept that magnesium is transported by solvent "drag".

Calcium and magnesium absorption from the colon and rectum are increased in rats fed fructooligosaccharides.

Results indicated that fructooligosaccharides significantly increased calcium and magnesium absorption and that indigestible and fermentable carbohydrate facilitates colorectal absorption ofcium and magnesium.

Results indicate that 0.5 g of calcium is the optimum dose of either calcium salt and confirm the superior calcium bioavailability from calcium citrate as compared with calcium carbonate.

Bioavailability of calcium from calcium carbonate, DL-calcium lactate, L-calcium lactate and powdered oyster shell calcium in vitamin D-deficient or -replete rats.

It is concluded that calcium is utilized to the same extent from calcium carbonate, DL-calcium lactate, L-cal calcium lactate and powered oyster shell-Calcium in both vitamin D-deficient and -replete rats.
