In this research, we studied how the nano Ca3(PO4)2 uptake in bone mineral influenced Rattus norvegicus (Sprague Dawley) calcium deficiency status. Association of Official Analytical standard method was used for proximate analysis, meanwhile calcium and magnesium compositions were determined by atomic absorption spectrophotometry. In addition to that, ultraviolet spectrophotometry and fourier transform infrared were used to determine the content of phosphorus and infrared spectrum of transmittance, respectively. The results showed that administration of nano-sized Ca3(PO4)2 purified diet gives a higher uptake than the regular-size, suggesting that the application of nano Ca3(PO4)2 to rats suspected in a bone mass peak age with calcium deficiency may potentially prevent the occurrence of osteoporosis.
