Vitamin E (α-Tocopherol) and Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid) Supplementation on Cholesterol and Triglyceride Blood Profile of Male Native Muscovy

Elly Tugiyanti, . Zuprizal, . Rusman


This objective of this research was to evaluate vitamin E and C supplementation in feed on blood cholesterol and triglyceride profile of muscovy. Eighty four muscovy were rationed to seven (7) treatments; E0C0: basal feed without vitamin E and C, E400: basal feed + 400 IU vitamin E, E600: basal feed+600 IU vitamin E, C400: basal feed+400 mg vitamin C, C600: basal feed+600 mg vitamin C, E200C200: basal feed +200 IU vitamin E+200 mg vitamin C, E300C300: basal feed+300 IU vitamin E+300 mg vitamin C. Completely Randomized Design was applied with 4 replicates and data were subjected to analysis of variance. Result showed that treatments significantly affected (P<0.01) blood cholesterol level but did not significantly affect HDL, LDL and Triglyceride levels of muscovy blood. In conclusion, vitamin E and vitamin C supplementation decreased blood cholesterol level.
