The Relationship Between Dose Of Vitamin E And Suppression Of Oxidative Stress In Humans
Notes for this study:
|Number of Subjects
Supplementation of high doses of vitamin E (1,600-3,200IU) daily for 16 weeks in hypercholesterolemic persons was able to reduce plasma F2 isoprostanes, but lower doses were not effective. No dose increased oxidation.
It was noted in a preliminary trial that 16 weeks are required for sufficient antioxidant properties to manifest with shorter periods of time ineffective.
