Daily Supplementation Of Tocotrienol-rich Fraction Or Alpha-tocopherol Did Not Induce Immunomodulatory Changes In Healthy Human Volunteers

Effect None
Trial Design Double blind
Trial Length 1-6 months
Number of Subjects 53
Gender Both Genders
Age Range 18-29, 30-44

Notes for this study:
In otherwise healthy young (20-50yrs) subjects given vitamin E supplementation as either 200mg of alpha-tocopherol or 200mg of mixed vitamers (mostly tocotrienols) both failed to have any apparent immunological benefit relative to control despite increases in plasma vitamin E.
