This Kinetic, Bioavailability, and Metabolism Study of RRR-alpha-Tocopherol in Healthy Adults Suggests Lower Intake Requirements than Previous Estimates

submitted by: jnusda
Kinetic models enable nutrient needs and kinetic behaviors to be quantified and provide mechanistic insights into metabolism. Therefore, we modeled and quantified the kinetics, bioavailability, and metabolism of RRR-alpha-tocopherol in 12 healthy adults. Six men and 6 women, aged 27 +/- 6 y, each ingested 1.81 nmol of 14C-RRR-alpha-tocopherol; each dose had 3.70 kBq of 14C. Complete collections of urine and feces were made over the first 21d from dosing. Serial blood samples were drawn over...
