Brief Summary:
Despite the emerging interest in tocotrienols, the absorption of tocotrienols in humans remains unclear especially with different fat diets.This study aimed at evaluating the absorption and distribution of tocotrienols in plasma and lipoproteins in associations with high and low fat diets. Different fat level will affect the absorption and distribution of tocotrienols

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Absorption Dietary Supplement: Tocotrienol Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
There is a possibility that the absorption and distribution of tocotrienols may occur differently compared with tocopherols, especially under different fat status

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Actual Enrollment : 10 participants
Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Crossover Assignment
Masking: Single (Participant)
Primary Purpose: Basic Science
Official Title: Mechanism of Absorption and Distribution of Tocotrienols Under Different Food Status
Study Start Date : September 2009
Actual Primary Completion Date : September 2009

MedlinePlus related topics: Vitamin E

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: High fat
500 mg of tocotrienol will be administered at single dose after consumption of high fat diet
Dietary Supplement: Tocotrienol
500 mg of tocotrienol will be administered after consumption of high fat diet

Experimental: Low fat
500 mg of tocotrienol will be administered at single dose after consumption of low fat diet
Dietary Supplement: Tocotrienol
500 mg of tocotrienol will be administered after consumption of low fat diet




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Difference in absorption and distribution of Tocoterienols during high fat and low fat meal by measuring the plasma, chylomicron, and HDL level of tocotrienol [ Time Frame: 0, 0.5, 1, 1.5, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 24 hours after tocotrienol administration and in take of designated meal ]
