Several researchers have demonstrated that dietary nitrate reduced liver stores of vitamin A in ruminants. However, it has not been shown whether the effect is due to a more rapid depletion of existing vitamin A stores or to a lowered depatic deposition of the vitamin.
Two experiments were conducted to determine the effect of nitrate on plasma vitamin A, hepatic vitamin A and performance of lambs during a growing period (experiment 1) and vitamin A depletion and repletion periods (experiment 2).
