Calcium supplementation attenuates enhanced platelet function in salt-loaded mildly hypertensive patients

Hypertension (Jul) 26:156-163 1995

This study evaluated the effects of high and low calcium intake on platelet function in patients during 300 mmol/day salt loading. Calcium supplementation resulted in decreases in various platelet factors and plasma and urinary norepinephrine concentrations, and prevented salt-induced platelet hyperaggregability with the suppression of the platelet release reaction.
