Mean (± SEM) α-tocotrienols (α-T3) distributions in triacylglycerol rich particles, TRP (○); LDL (●); and HDL (Δ) of healthy volunteers (n = 10) after supplementation with the tocotrienol-rich fraction (TRF). α-T3 was detected in all lipoprotein fractions starting from 2 h until 8 h. No α-T3 was detected at 0 h and 24 h (fasted states). Inset: AUC, area under the curve, 0-8 h (arbitrary units) is presented as mean ± SEM (n = 10) for α-T3 distribution in TRP, LDL and HDL.
