    Saturation means full; nothing else can be held. There are no more carriers to enable any more facilitated diffusion, so the rate will level off due to lack of available carriers.

    It means it will get to a certain point, then that point will be maintained and cannot go any higher.

    The best word for level off that will appear in a dictionary is that it will plateau.
