High-Density Lipoprotein Cholesterol Concentrations and Particle Size Are Modified by Dietary Zinc in Men

Measures biomarkers of lipid metabolism in response to a marginal zinc depletion, repletion and supplementation in healthy males

Abstract

This paper aims to measure biomarkers of lipid metabolism in response to a marginal zinc depletion, repletion, and supplementation in healthy male subjects. 18 male subjects between ages of 18–45 consumed a controlled diet with 2 levels of dietary zinc.
