There is increasing concern about potential negative interactions in combined iron and zinc supplementation. The aim of the present study was to determine the dose-response effect of zinc, given as a solution, on iron bioavailability. Twenty-two healthy adult women were selected to participate in the study. Iron, with or without zinc was given as an aqueous solution on d 1,2,14, and 15 of the study. Iron bioavailability was measured on the basis of erythrocyte incorporation of55Fe or59Fe 14 d… CONTINUE READING
