Abbreviations: HDL = high-density lipoprotein; LDL = low-density lipoprotein; NBP = nutrient biomarker pattern.

aExtraction method: principal component analysis. Rotation method: varimax with kaiser normalization.
bNBP interpretation is based on the strongest loading coefficients within each pattern. For example, a high NBP1 score is interpreted as high plasma vitamins B, C, D, and E. Each standardized summary score is a linear combination of the plasma nutrients that mostly represent the respective pattern. Coefficients <0.15 were excluded to simplify the table and emphasize dominant nutrients within each pattern.
cConsidered the dominant nutrients in the pattern.
