Although iron plays a critical role in exercise, the regulatory mechanism of iron metabolism remains poorly understood. The aims of the present study were to investigate the effects of different intensity exercise on body iron status and the regulatory mechanism of duodenal iron absorption. Thirty female Sprague-Dawley rats (90–100 g) were randomly divided into three groups: a control group (remained sedentary, CG), a moderately exercised group (swam 1.5 h/day, MG) and a strenuously exercised… CONTINUE READING
