Potential Interactions
There is some evidence that magnesium may enhance calcium absorption.

Other nutrients are needed by the body, along with EPO, to make PGE1. Consequently, some experts suggest that magnesium, zinc, vitamin C, niacin, and vitamin B6 should be taken along with EPO.

  • Horrobin DF. The importance of gamma-linolenic acid and prostaglandin E1 in human nutrition and medicine. J Holistic Med 1981;3:118-39.
Vitamin D’s most important role is maintaining blood levels of calcium. Therefore, many doctors recommend that those supplementing with calcium also supplement with 400–1,200 IU of vitamin D per day.
Refrences
  • Norman AW. Intestinal calcium absorption: a vitamin D-hormone-mediated adaptive response. Am J Clin Nutr 1990;51:290-300.
Some evidence suggests that adding vitamin E to fish oil may prevent fish oil-induced increase in blood sugar levels.

Supplementing with polyunsaturated fatty acids (which are present in evening primrose oil) increases vitamin E requirements. Therefore, people taking evening primrose oil may need additional vitamin E.

In one study, administration of 1.9 g per day of calcium for 6 weeks to healthy individuals reduced the uptake of iodine by the thyroid gland. Further studies suggested that this effect of calcium was due to inhibition of gastrointestinal absorption of iodine. To be on the safe side, some doctors recommend that people taking calcium for long periods of time should also take a multimineral supplement that contains iodine.
Refrences
  • Boyle JA, Greig WR, Fulton S, Dalakos TG. Excess dietary calcium and human thyroid function. J Endocrinol 1966;34:531-532.
NAC may increase urinary zinc excretion. Therefore, supplemental zinc and copper should be added when supplementing with NAC for extended periods.
Refrences

In a study of healthy men, supplementation with a large amount of zinc (142 mg per day) decreased magnesium absorption. Magnesium supplementation should therefore be considered for people taking large amounts of zinc, and possibly for those taking lower amounts.
Refrences
  • Spencer H, Norris C, Williams D. Inhibitory effects of zinc on magnesium balance and magnesium absorption in man. J Am Coll Nutr 1994;13:479-84.
Zinc competes for absorption with copper  and inhibits copper absorption. Copper deficiency can result in anemia, lower levels of HDL (“good”) cholesterol, neurological disorders, and cardiac arrhythmias. Copper intake should be increased if zinc supplementation continues for more than a few days (except for people with Wilson’s disease). Some sources recommend a 10:1 ratio of zinc to copper. Evidence suggests that no more that 2 mg of copper per day is needed to prevent zinc-induced copper deficiency. Many zinc supplements include copper in the formulation to prevent zinc-induced copper deficiency. Zinc-induced copper deficiency has been reported to cause reversible anemia and suppression of bone marrow. In addition, there are case reports of neurologic abnormalities due to copper deficiency occurring in people who had been using large amounts of certain widely available denture creams that contained high concentrations of zinc.
