Enriched stable isotopes used as tracers have proven to be valuable in studies of the absorption and metabolism of minerals. Unlike radioisotopes, they can be used in high-risk population groups such as infants, children, and pregnant or lactating women. Estimates of mineral absorption can be made from the oral administration of a single tracer or from two tracers, one given orally and the other intravenously (IV). It is possible to determine the metabolism of the mineral with modeling based on… Expand
