Abstract

In this study, we tested whether 1,200 IU/day of alpha-tocopherol was more potent than 400 and 800 IU of alpha-tocopherol in decreasing low- density lipoprotein (LDL) oxidative susceptibility in a 2-month study. The decrease in LDL oxidation was significantly greater with 1,200 IU/day than 400 IU/day.
