The Trace Mineral Losses in Sweat
[Technical Report, Technical Report]
ARMY MEDICAL RESEARCH AND NUTRITION LAB DENVER CO
Pagination or Media Count:
The results of this study show that considerable quantities of the trace minerals, including zinc, selenium, copper, cobalt, iodine, strontium, molybdenum, nickel, lead and chromium, are excreted in sweat, under conditions that produce profuse sweating. These losses are extremely important since they reflect losses that should be included in balance studies, which would greatly aid in evaluating more realistically the minimal daily requirements. As in previous studies, the excretion of these trace minerals in sweat decreases appreciably during acclimatization to hot environments.
