Vitamin E, a fat-soluble nutrient, has been referred to as “nature’s master antioxidant.” It protects cell membranes from damaging attacks by highly reactive chemicals called free radicals. The vitamin E family includes d-alpha-tocopherol, its most common member, plus seven other substances which also have vitamin E activity. Vitamin E is found in vegetable oils, seeds, and cereal grains, but wheat germ oil is its richest natural source. Research suggests that vitamin E may slow or prevent the onset of several major diseases linked to free-radical damage, including cancer, atherosclerosis, cataracts, and diabetes. Science also demonstrates possible roles for vitamin E in improving circulation, slowing the aging process, improving energy levels and physical endurance, enhancing the capacity to heal, and protecting the body against pollutants.
In 1996, vitamin E research exploded with the publication of several studies indicating that this nutrient may help prevent heart disease. The amounts of vitamin E shown in research studies to help prevent heart disease were far in excess of what anyone could get from diet alone. For instance, one study found that vitamin E at 400 I.U., but not at lower levels, reduced the oxidation of LDL cholesterol (so-called “bad” cholesterol).
According to the American Heart Association, vitamin E — either in supplements or in food — appears to prevent coronary heart disease, which results when fatty plaque clogs the arteries feeding the heart. One study found that vitamin E supplements reduced heart attacks by 75%.
