Effect of Marginal Zinc Intake and Repletion on Essential Fatty Acid Metabolism

16 healthy males were subjected to 3 sequential phases of dietary zinc intake modulation

Abstract

To determine the effects of marginal zinc deficiency and repletion on essential fatty acid, sphingolipid, and lipoprotein metabolism 16 healthy male subjects between ages of 18–45 were subjected to three sequential phases of dietary zinc intake modulation.

This work is an output of the HarvestPlus Programme. The Department for International Development is one of the main donors for HarvestPlus.
