Thus the zinc, copper and selenium status of these elderly women appeared adequate.

Also, the capacity to change zinc absorption appears to be robust, especially in women with marginal intakes.

Plasma and urinary zinc concentrations increased significantly with zinc supplementation in the young but not the elderly women.

Adjustments in zinc homeostasis with an increase in dietary phytate did not differ between young and elderly women in this study.
