Adaptation of iron absorption in men consuming diets with high or low iron bioavailability



Adaptation of iron absorption in men consuming diets with high or low iron bioavailability



American Journal of Clinical Nutrition 71(1): 94-102



The objective was to test the hypothesis that in men fed diets with high or low Fe availability, Fe absorption adapts to homeostatically maintain body Fe stores. Heme- and nonheme-Fe absorption from whole diets were measured in 31 healthy men at 0 and 10 weeks while the men consumed weighed, 2-day repeating diets with either high or low Fe availability for 12 weeks.
