Influence of Dietary Calcium Content on Intestinal Permeability in Rat.

Influence of Dietary Calcium Content on Intestinal Permeability in Rat.

Background & objectives: Agents that increase the permeability af intestinal epithelium promote the absorption of nutrients by the gut. High calcium concentration in the gut has been shown to enhance passive transport of glucose in the rat intestine. An increase in the permeability of the intestinal epithelium may account for this observation. The present study […]
