Abstract

(From the Introduction)

The purpose of the work reported in this paper was to study the influence of level of dietary protein upon utilization of magnesium. The experiments consisted of a series of metabolic balance studies in which young adults were fed diets containing different, relatively low levels of protein and constant amounts of magnesium and other nutrients. Results will provide information concerning the influence of dietary protein upon magnesium metabolism in the adult and serve as a basis for planning a future similar study with preadolescent children.
