Figure 1: The 24-h serum iron levels after intake of 10 mg of FC in the normal rats; the rats (n = 45 rats) were given 10 mg of FC by oral gavage at 08:00 am and killed 0, 0.5, 1, 2, 3, 6, 9, 12, and 24 h after FC intake (n = 5 rats in each group). (a) Serum iron, (b) transferrin saturation levels, (c) hepcidin. *Significantly differs from that at the starting point at 0 h (P < 0.05). FC: Ferric citrate
