Abstract: Iron deposits are hallmarks in Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease. Iron and zinc are known to compete in absorption as a result of similar physical and chemical properties with the same absorption pathways. However, little is known with regard to the effect of dietary zinc intake on brain iron uptake. The effect of dietary zinc intake on iron uptake by the brain and other organs was studied using stable isotope techniques in a mouse model. It was found that high dietary zinc intake had a negative effect on body and brain iron balance. This finding indicates that brain iron levels during adulthood can be modulated by dietary zinc intake.
