Abstract

The effect of green tea on iron absorption from tablets containing sodium ferrous citrate was investigated in four elderly patients with iron deficiency anemia and in eleven normal elderly subjects. In both groups, the serum iron level reached a maximum value from 2 to 4 hours after taking iron tablets and returned to the baseline value after 24 hours. No inhibitory effect of green tea on iron absorption was recognized.
