Zinc intake and status in Australian vegetarians

There was a significant correlation between serum Zn concentration and dietary Zn density in vegetarians, especially females (P < 0·001), but not in omnivores, and ovolactovegetarians did not have a significantly greater risk of low Zn status than omnivore.

The energy and nutrient intakes of different types of vegetarian: a case for supplements?

It is recommended that ‘new’ vegetarians and vegans should use appropriate dietary supplements and the impact of low I intakes should be further studied, and it is recommended the most involved vegetarians were the least involved in a ‘vegetarian lifestyle’.

Vegetarian diets across the lifecycle: impact on zinc intake and status.

Nutrient intake and vitamin status of healthy French vegetarians and nonvegetarians.

Vegetarians did not have a higher risk rate for a biochemical vitamin deficiency of thiamin, riboflavin, folates, and vitamins B-6, C, A, and E than the nonvegetarians.

Iron and zinc status of young women aged 14 to 19 years consuming vegetarian and omnivorous diets.

SuboptimalIron and zinc status was attributed to low intakes of poorly available iron and zinc in all dietary groups.

Although serum ferritin levels were inferior (particularly in vegetarians under 3 years old), the lower intakes of fat, cholesterol and sodium, and higher antioxidant vitamin intakes and status indices were potentially beneficial.

Zinc and iron utilization in young women consuming a beef-based diet.




Alterations in zinc absorption and salivary sediment zinc after a lacto-ovo-vegetarian diet.

The increased plasma response to a zinc load and decrease in salivary sediment zinc after a vegetarian diet indicate that this diet adversely affects zinc status.

The dietary status of "new" vegetarians.

A study of fifty well educated young adults, average age twenty-eight years, living in a metropolitan area of New England, who were followers of Zen macrobiotics, revealed that none was below his/her

Zinc content of selected foods.

Effect of oral contraceptive agents on nutrients: I. Minerals.

In general, the intake of oral contraceptive agent subjects for calories, protein, calcium, magnesium, iron, copper and zinc did not differ from the controls and the subjects who took supplements had higher intakes of calcium, Iron, magnesium and copper.

Zinc anc copper status of Polynesian residents in the Tokelau Islands.

Rank of blood pressure had no influence on the measurements for zinc or copper, although within blood pressure ranks the men again had a higher hair zinc concentration than the women, and analysis of Tokelauan foods showed that most contained very low concentrations of zinc anc alsoLow concentrations of copper.

Hair as a biopsy material. V. Hair metal as an index of hepatic metal in rats: copper and zinc.

Hair copper in 500 day-old adult rats was found to correlate directly with copper in whole liver and the subcellular liver nuclear, and cytosol fractions, and an inverse correlation was found between copper in liver microsomes and plasma cholesterol.

Determination of serum zinc concentrations in normal adult subjects by atomic absorption spectrophotometry.

Serum zinc concentrations were determined repeatedly in 99 healthy young men by a simple automated atomic absorption spectrophotometric method, finding that 95% of values from a given individual were within 18 μ g.

Diurnal variation in serum zinc concentration.

The concentration of zinc in serum was determined by atomic absorption spectrophotometry in 13 healthy adults at 3 different times during the day under standard conditions. A significant decrease was
