OBJECTIVE The antioxidant activity of vitamin E is derived primarily from alpha-tocopherol (alpha-T) and gamma-tocopherol (gamma-T). Results of epidemiological studies have demonstrated an inverse relationship between vitamin E intake and coronary disease. However, the results of clinical trials using alpha-T are equivocal. We determined the effect of 5 weeks of 100 mg/d or 200 mg/d gamma-T supplementation on thrombotic markers such as platelet reactivity, lipid profile and the inflammation… Expand
Title : Gamma tocopherol supplementation prevents exercise induced coagulation and platelet aggregation
INTRODUCTION: Strenuous exercise in sedentary individuals increases the acute risk of atherothrombotic events and depletes endogenous antioxidants. Supplementation with the antioxidant tocopherolExpand
Effect of palm-based tocotrienols and tocopherol mixture supplementation on platelet aggregation in subjects with metabolic syndrome: a randomised controlled trial
TLDR
The results of this study highlight the lack of inhibitory effect on platelet aggregation after short-term supplementation of PTT mixture in participants with metabolic syndrome. Expand
Effect of vitamin E supplementation on serum C-reactive protein level: a meta-analysis
TLDR
The results of this meta-analysis suggest that supplementation with vitamin E in the form of either α-tocopherol or γ-tocouserol would reduce serum CRP levels. Expand
Effect of vitamin E supplementation on serum C-reactive protein level: a meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials
TLDR
The results of this meta-analysis suggest that supplementation with vitamin E in the form of either α-tocopherol or γ-tocaperol would reduce serum CRP levels. Expand
γ-Tocopherol-rich supplementation additively improves vascular endothelial function during smoking cessation.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that short-term γ-T-rich supplementation in combination with smoking cessation improved VEF beyond that from smoking cessation alone in young smokers, probably by decreasing the proinflammatory mediators TNF-α and myeloperoxidase. Expand
The effect of vitamin-mineral supplementation on CRP and IL-6: a systemic review and meta-analysis of randomised controlled trials.
TLDR
No statistically significant evidences for the potential dose-dependent manner of BMI and best supplement duration were detected in this study and large and well-designed studies are recommended. Expand
A review of the mechanisms and effectiveness of dietary polyphenols in reducing oxidative stress and thrombotic risk.
Dietary sources of polyphenols, which are derivatives and/or isomers of flavones, isoflavones, flavonols, catechins and phenolic acids, possess antioxidant properties and therefore might be importantExpand
Role of Fenugreek in the prevention of type 2 diabetes mellitus in prediabetes
TLDR
Dietary supplementation of 10 g Fenugreek/day in prediabetes subjects was associated with lower conversion to diabetes with no adverse effects and beneficial possibly due to its decreased insulin resistance. Expand
The ex vivo antiplatelet activation potential of fruit phenolic metabolite hippuric acid.
TLDR
The contribution of hippuric acid to the protective effects of fruit and vegetable intake against vascular disorders by the pathways measured is low but could be synergistic with lowered doses of antiplatelets drugs and help reduce risk of thrombosis in current antiplatelet drug sensitive populations.

Consumption of anthocyanin-rich Queen Garnet plum juice reduces platelet activation related thrombogenesis in healthy volunteers
The anti-thrombotic properties of an anthocyanin-rich Queen Garnet plum juice (QGPJ) and anthocyanin-free prune juice (PJ) were studied in this randomised, double-blind, crossover trial. Twenty-oneExpand

BACKGROUND Tocotrienols have been reported to lower LDL-cholesterol and fasting glucose concentrations and to have potent antioxidant effects, but the results are contradictory. OBJECTIVE TheExpand
Mixed tocopherols inhibit platelet aggregation in humans: potential mechanisms.
TLDR
Mixed tocopherols were more potent in preventing platelet aggregation than was alpha-tocopherol alone and were associated with increased NO release, ecNOS activation, and SOD protein content in platelets, which may contribute to the effect on platelets. Expand
Differential effects of α- and γ-tocopherol on low-density lipoprotein oxidation, superoxide activity, platelet aggregation and arterial thrombogenesis
TLDR
It is indicated that both α- and γ-tocopherol decrease platelet aggregation and delay intraarterial thrombus formation, perhaps by an increase in endogenous antioxidant activity. Expand
Effect of mixed tocopherols on ecNOS, SOD and PKC in leukocytes in human subjects
TLDR
Mixed tocopherols had a more potent effect than α-tocopherol alone on ecNOS activation, which may be of importance for the beneficial effects of mixed tocop herols on leukocyte function and cardiovascular disease. Expand

TLDR
Findings provide strong evidence that gammaT shows anti-inflammatory activities in vivo that may be important for human disease prevention and therapy. Expand
Dietary flavanols and procyanidin oligomers from cocoa (Theobroma cacao) inhibit platelet function.
TLDR
Cocoa flavanol and procyanidin supplementation for 28 d significantly increased plasma epicatechin and catechin concentrations and significantly decreased platelet function, which support the results of acute studies that used higher doses of cocoa flavanols and proCyanidins. Expand
gamma-tocopherol, the major form of vitamin E in the US diet, deserves more attention.
TLDR
It is suggested that gamma-tocopherol may contribute significantly to human health in ways not recognized previously, and this possibility should be further evaluated, especially considering that high doses of alpha-tocaperol deplete plasma and tissue gamma-Tocopherol, in contrast with supplementation withGamma-CEHC, which increases both.
