  1. Data are mean ± SEM; PL, Placebo; MIDS, multi-ingredient dietary supplement; TC, total cholesterol; TRG, triglycerides; HDL, high density lipoprotein; LDL, low density lipoprotein; HR, heart rate; SBP, systolic blood pressure; DBP, diastolic blood pressure; n is different for TRG, LDL, LDL/HDL as a result of insufficient data.
