After meeting with a flurry of controversy awhile back, it seems vitamin E is finally getting the credit it deserves from the scientific community.
Recent research has suggested that vitamin E can help patients with mild to moderate Alzheimer’s disease. Another recent study showed this vitamin can help fatty liver disease.
And now, a new study reveals that higher vitamin E intake results in a lower risk of high blood pressure (hypertension).
Researchers looked at 1,405 men and 2,102 women aged 40 and older, and analyzed dietary habits intake of vitamin E and other nutrients.
Participants with the highest vitamin E intake had a 27 percent lower risk of hypertension.
As an antioxidant, vitamin E decreases the formation of free radicals and reduces oxidative stress. And, ultimately, oxidative stress is the root of nearly all no communicable diseases—including hypertension.
So it’s time to dust off this old classic and add it back to the list of “must-have” supplements…it’s certainly on mine.
In fact, it’s one of the supplements on my new and improved “Desert Island” supplement list, which I’ll be unveiling in just a few weeks, in the January issue of my Logical Health Alternatives newsletter.
