New research highlights further benefits of vitamin E
In recent years, the scientific community has become more interested in the potential health benefits of vitamin E as researchers have realized that most people fall short of their recommended daily amount. In fact, vitamin E has just been listed as a shortfall nutrient in the 2015 Dietary Guidelines for Americans. According to Dr. Andrea Wong, vice president of scientific and regulatory affairs at the Council for Responsible Nutrition, 93 percent of Americans don't get enough vitamin E in their diets.
Here are a few of the recent studies demonstrating that vitamin E is crucial for health:
- Researchers at Oregon State University found that vitamin E intake strongly influences cognitive capabilities in children under two years old. "It's important all your life, but the most compelling evidence about vitamin E is about a 1000-day window that begins at conception," lead researcher Maret Traber said.
- A study review published this past February in the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that vitamin E supplementation was able to reduce heart attack risk by about 20 percent. However, when the vitamin was combined with other antioxidants, the benefits were nullified, for unknown reasons.
- Research published this June in the journal The Prostate found that higher levels of vitamin E were associated with lower rates of aggressive prostate cancer.
