Lowering of serum cholesterol in hypercholesterolemic humans by tocotrienols (palmvitee).

Am. J. Clin. Nutr. 1991 Apr;53(4):1021S-1026S.
PubMed Citation Journal Link

A double-blind, crossover, 8-wk study was conducted to compare effects of the tocotrienol-enriched fraction of palm oil (200 mg palmvitee capsules/day) with those of 300 mg corn oil/d on ser...en 200 mg gamma-tocotrienol/d. This indicates that gamma-tocotrienol may be the most potent cholesterol inhibitor in palmvitee capsules. The results of this pilot study are very encouraging.
