Study of magnesium bioavailability using stable isotopes and the inductively-coupled plasma mass spectrometry technique in the rat: single and double labelling approaches.

Abstract

The present work aimed to investigate the feasibility of using stable isotopes and inductively-coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP/MS) to study Mg absorption in rats. Male Wistar rats, aged 7 weeks and weighing 180 g, were used. They were fed on a semi-purified diet containing 1070 mg Mg/kg, and had free access to feed and distilled water. In the first… (More)
