Abstract

Stable isotopes are safe, versatile, scientifically rigorous tools for studying nutrient metabolism in humans. They can be used to follow the metabolism of nutrient minerals from specific foods or diets, including the determination of efficiency of absorption and the effects of dietary constituents on absorption, and to investigate fundamental aspects of nutritional biochemistry. In this article we describe stable isotope methods and the results of some recent nutrient mineral metabolism studies in humans.
