Abstract

The influence of D,L-α-tocopherol(vitamin E) on the plasma total and very low density lipoprotein, low density lipoprotein, and high-density lipoprotein cholesterol and triglyceride was studied in one normolipidemic and four hypertriglyceridemic subjects. Overall vitamin E caused no decrease in plasma total, very low-density and low-density lipoprotein cholesterol and triglyceride concentrations and no increase in high-density lipoprotein cholesterol level. D,L-α-Tocopherol does not seem to have any consistent effect on plasma lipids and lipoproteins in these patients.
