The effect of calcium on plasma lipids and bile acid and fecal fat excretion in normolipidemic subjects.


The effect of oral calcium (2 g/day) was studied in four normolipidemic subjects. Calcium caused a significant lowering of plasma cholesterol and a considerable fall in the glycine-/taurine-conjugated bile acid ratio in the intestinal aspirate of one subject, while fecal bile acid excretion rose appreciably in another during treatment.
