VITAMIN E: NATURES MASTER ANTIOXIDANT

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%.

About Nutrients that keep blood pressure normal

In an effort to draw attention to the dramatic increases in chronic disease world-wide, the World Health Organization (WHO) in its report, “Preventing Chronic Disease - A Vital Investment”, pointed that chronic disease, world-wide, is increasing faster than the rate of population growth! In 2005, 60% of all deaths, about 35 million, were attributed to chronic disease. By 2015, they expect that number to rise by 17% to 41 million! One of these chronic diseases is cardiovascular disease - a disease linked to high blood pressure, which the WHO reports kills an estimated 17 million people worldwide every year. At the root of this problem is poor nutrition. Many people are just not consuming foods with sufficient levels of nutrients capable of helping our bodies fight off diseases and keep us healthy. As a way to help people improve their diet and reduce incidences of chronic diseases (particularly those linked to high blood pressure), we decided to write this blog in an attempt to highlight nutrients that are important in maintaining normal blood pressure levels. We have also included research findings to back our claims. Also featured are dietary supplements that contain the essential nutrients in much higher levels than those found in ordinary food for best results. Feel free to leave your comments or contact us in case you have any queries. Also kindly support our cause by buying any of the featured dietary supplements.
