Dolichols play an important role in biosynthesis, protein metabolism, cell vitality and immune system health.
This study assessed the effects of simvastatin on dolichol levels. The laboratory based study used the human SH-SY5Y cells.
The study found that dolichol levels were significantly decreased by simvastatin.
