Study On The Effect Of Megavitamin E Supplementation In Man

Effect None
Trial Design Double blind
Trial Length 2-4 Weeks
Number of Subjects 184
Gender Both Genders
Age Range 18-29, 30-44
Notes for this study:
Supplementation of 600 IU vitamin E (alpha-tocopherol) daily for 28 days did not appear to significantly affect any measured biomarker in the blood with exception to thyroid hormones, which appeared to be reduced in men and women not on oral contraceptives.

The nonsignificant changes in total cholesterol and triglycerides seemed to be exacerbated more in females on oral contraceptives, as those increases (while mild) reached statistical significance.

General parameters of intestinal symptoms, overall well being, sexuality, and other subjective parameters were said to be unaffected by therapy.
