To ascertain the mechanism of such decrease in intestinal absorption of calcium, we examined the activities of the two most relevant mucosal calcium transferring enzymes, namely, alkaline phosphatase and calcium-ATPase.
As the results, potency-wise, indicate a close similarity of responses between these two agents (Tables 3 and 4), it maybe suggested that BTE has a promise to be an effective adjunct for calcium supplementation in the early phase of menopause, which possibly may be attributed to its phytoestrogenic efficacy in regulating the intestinal absorption of calcium, the mechanism of which may be either by modulating theactivities of mucosal calcium transferring enzymes or by a direct action on intestinal ER or both.
