This situation can be noted classically in relation to Fe, whose organic values are rigidly controlled by the ferritin content, the storage protein of this element, since Fe is an oxidizing element. Another element whose storage level can be measured is Ca, by measuring the amount contained in the bones. More recently, such an evaluation has been studied for Zn, an element that occurs in hundreds of enzymes and millions of protein domains.

4 g/day), the low‐ sodium diet resulted in significant decreases in Na and Ca excretion and in that of the bone turnover biomarker type I collagen amino‐terminal propeptide, with no significant changes in the calcitropic hormones. 4 g/day or greater, a low‐sodium diet may have benefits for skeletal health [86].
