Possible Interaction: Carotenoids and Magnesium





Research Papers that Mention the Interaction

Thus, at physiological ranges, calcium and magnesium could negatively impact carotenoid bioavailability, while for zinc, negative effects were only seen at supplemental concentrations.

Magnesium may reduce carotenoid bioavailability by forming insoluble complexes with bile salts/fatty acids, inhibiting micelle formation.
The impact of magnesium on carotenoid bioaccessibility was modulated mainly by bile concentration, with samples digested with 1mM of bile being more susceptible to inhibitory effects of magnesium than those digested with 8mM (p<0.001).
Thus, magnesium was found to potentially interfere with carotenoid bioaccessibility at various physiologically plausible conditions.
