Human Effect Matrix

The Human Effect Matrix looks at human studies (it excludes animal and in vitro studies) to tell you what supplements affect vldl-c
Grade Level of Evidence
Robust research conducted with repeated double-blind clinical trials
Multiple studies where at least two are double-blind and placebo controlled
Single double-blind study or multiple cohort studies
Uncontrolled or observational studies only
Level of Evidence
? The amount of high quality evidence. The more evidence, the more we can trust the results.
Outcome Magnitude of effect
? The direction and size of the supplement's impact on each outcome. Some supplements can have an increasing effect, others have a decreasing effect, and others have no effect.
Consistency of research results
? Scientific research does not always agree. HIGH or VERY HIGH means that most of the scientific research agrees.
Notes
grade-b Fish Oil Minor Very High See all 6 studies
May decrease vLDL cholesterol
grade-b Chromium - Very High See all 4 studies
No significant influence on vLDL cholesterol seen in diabetics supplementing chromium.
grade-c Vitamin B3 (Niacin) Notable Very High See 2 studies
Alongside decreases in triglycerides and LDL-C, the concentrations of vLDL-C also appear to be decreased in response to niacin supplementation.
