Optimal intestinal calcium (Ca) absorption is necessary for the protection of bone and the prevention of osteoporosis. Ca absorption can be represented as the sum of a saturable pathway and a non-saturable pathway that is primarily dependent upon luminal Ca concentration. While models have been proposed to describe these transport components, significant gaps still exist in our understanding of these processes. Habitual low intake of Ca up-regulates the saturable transport pathway, a process… CONTINUE READING
