"Newer research suggests that low vitamin e levels are linked to estrogen dominance. Furthermore, vitamin e deficiency has been found to inhibit estrogen detoxification. / TAKE 400 IU OF vitamin e PER DAY. Calcium-Magnesium Combo Most women and men find it difficult to get the recommended 1,200-1,500 mg of calcium per day from their diet. Calcium intake should therefore be supplemented with a calcium-magnesium combination supplement."

"Vitamin E (tocopherol) Essential for healing, muscle, nerve and blood maintenance, vitamin e also stabilises cell membranes. It has been recognised as an antioxidant, protecting vulnerable chemicals in the body from being destroyed by free radicals. It protects cells of the body from damage by environmental pollution. Vitamin E is found in many foods, but wheatgerm, almonds and vegetable oils are particularly rich in it. Zinc Zinc is a part of many enzymes in the body and is needed for the formation of proteins and insulin."

"One day, vitamin e is good; the next, we find out that the benefits of vitamin e supplements have been oversold. Large doses of some supplements such as vitamin A, vitamin B6 and vitamin e may even be harmful. If you are concerned about a particular nutrient or supplement, in addition to discussing it with your health-care provider, peruse the National Institutes of Health Office of Dietary Supplements website for data on a wide range of dietary supplements and their risks and safety (www.ods.od.nih.gov). You can also download the USDA's free nutrient database software (go to www.ars.usda."

"Mixed vitamin e," or if you can't find that, look for d-alpha tocopherols (not dl). Your fish oil supplement may contain some vitamin e as a preservative, but take a separate supplement to be sure to get enough. Contrary to earlier studies, emerging research suggests that for vitamin e to be effective, doses as high as 1,600-2,000 IU may be needed. Typical daily dose: 400-2,000 IU Vitamin C Vital to repairing many of the body's systems, vitamin C is also the single most important co-factor for repair of collagen breaks in your blood vessels and skin."

"Complete vitamin C complex Likewise, alphatocopherol, which is sold as vitamin e, is only part of the vitamin e complex. As Richard Murray points out: ... synthetic vitamins are not vitamins at all but synthesized FRACTIONS of a vitamin complex ... a mirror image duplication of just a portion of the real, biologically active and physiologically precise nutritional complex. There is no possible way that a fraction of a vitamin can be called a vitamin. The analogy here is essentially the same as an automobile salesman handing you a wheel from a car and telling you the wheel is an automobile."

"It is also rich in vitamin e, which has been proven to be effective as an antioxidant for cardiovascular health, despite what you may have heard in the popular press about vitamin e. This is why, if you want vitamin e in your diet and you want to get it from a natural source, one of the best things to do is buy wheat germ. Wheat germ is, in a sense, a superfood. That's what makes it such an outstanding choice for sprinkling on cereals or oatmeal or wherever you choose to use it in your diet."

"I might add that, unlike many of my colleagues, I never took vitamin e, which was all the rage in the 1990s before recently fizzling out in the wake of inconclusive randomized control trials. N-3 fatty acids are being hyped in ways reminiscent of vitamin e, and beta-carotene before it, and oat bran before that. I must emphasize that there is much we don't yet know about the compound, including whether n-3 fatty acids from plants are as good as those from fish, and whether supplements are a help or hindrance."

"Treatment with vitamin e for 4.5 years had no discernible clinical effect on cardiac outcomes, nor was there a discernible effect of vitamin e supplementation for the risk for stroke or respiratory tract infections. Vitamin E supplementation may, however, diminish the likelihood of dementia. The Rotterdam study is a cohort study, not a drug trial. Over 5,000 older people have now been followed for an average of six years. Careful dietary histories, emphasizing antioxidant consumption, have been collected both at inception and at intervals ever since."

"There is an abundance of research showing that vitamin e is powerfiilly protective against heart attacks and strokes. It is an important part of a PMS supplement regimen. vitamin e is found in whole grains, vegetables, and nuts. Our diets of vitamin E-deficient, refined carbohydrates have created a virtual epidemic of vitamin e deficiency. vitamin e is destroyed by food processing and light. This is a vitamin that almost everyone can benefit from in supplement form."

"Look for antioxidants such as vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin e, beta-carotene, lycopene, lutein, bioflavanoids, resveratrol, zinc, and selenium. You'll want a formulation that includes the full spectrum of B vitamins, including the activated forms of B2 and Bfi (riboflavin-5 -phosphate and pyridoxal-5 -phosphate, respectively). You'll also want a multivitamin formula that includes vitamin D3, and make sure the vitamin e is in the form of d-alpha-tocopherol. Avoid the "dl" form, which is synthetic. You'll want a high-potency vitamin C (about 1,000 mg) provided by ascorbic acid."

"Oxidative damage in the lungs is rampant during influenza infection. vitamin e is highly protective against this kind of tissue damage. It also bolsters immune function. Supplementing with vitamin e can help reduce the risk of postviral infection. Take 1,000 IU of mixed tocopherols containing a minimum of 500 mg of d-alpha tocopherol. In these dosages, vitamin e is considered safe and without adverse interactions. Since it can interfere with platelet aggregation, however, do not take it if you take blood-thinning drugs such as Coumadin or aspirin."

"When refined, the fiber, antioxidants including vitamin e and selenium, as well as a slew of other key micronutrients like magnesium, zinc, potassium and the B vitamins are stripped right off. More than 50 percent of the thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, pantothenic acid, B6, folate, and vitamin e are lost. By law flour manufacturers have to fortify their refined flour with some of the same nutrients that were milled away. And those fortifications don't include important phytochem-icals like lignans, phenolic acids, phytoestrogens, and other key nutrients."

"The data were doubly attractive, for there was a theory to back it up. vitamin e, along with vitamins A and C and Selenium, were "antioxidants," that is, they supposedly neutralized the toxic result of oxidation (so-called free radicals) thereby preventing cell damage and subsequent malignant transformation. At the same time they seemed to reduce LDL and diminish arterial clotting, theteby diminishing cardiovascular damage. It seemed to be too good to be true."
- Gerald E. Markle and Frances B. McCrea, What If Medicine Disappeared? (Get the book.)

"It seems apparent that vitamin e is not effective in the secondary prevention of heart disease or cancer, or in the primary prevention of cancer. It is possible that the supplement is helpful in the primary prevention of heart disease, particularly in protecting against sudden heart failure. A SKEPTICAL ADDENDUM Alas, were that the only disappointing finding. Other widely touted antioxidants have not been shown to prevent disease. At the turn of the millennium, one of the most touted supplement was omega-3 fatty acids, found in high concentrations in fish oil."

- Gerald E. Markle and Frances B. McCrea, What If Medicine Disappeared? (Get the book.)

"Despite this unexpected finding, the authors of the Women's Health Study do "not support recommending vitamin e supplementation for [the prevention of heart disease] or cancer among healthy women." Rather they promote "therapeutic lifestyle changes including a healthy diet" as the best form of primary prevention.10 How do we explain these disappointing and unexpected results? We might think that supplementary pills cannot substitute for nutrients in natural foods. Common sense would support the notion that taking a pill is not the same as eating."

"Copper protects red blood cells against oxidation in: (a) Vitamin C. (b) vitamin e. (c) Glutathione peroxidase. (d) Superoxide dismutase. 7. Manganese toxicity is: (a) Rare. (b) Somewhat common. (c) Common. (d) A widespread problem. 8. Which mineral helps reduce dental decay? (a) Zinc. (b) Fluoride. (c) Manganese. (d) Chromium. 9. Chromium enhances the effects of: (a) Serotonin. (b) Insulin. (c) Adrenaline. (d) Thyroxine. 10. The healthiest amount of mercury to intake daily in food is: (a) 10 mg. (b) 10 meg. (c) 1 meg. (d) 0 meg."

"However, studies on the cardiovascular protective effects of supplementary vitamin e given as synthetic alpha-tocopherol have had inconsistent results. Research continues, but there are indications that the other forms of tocopherols, collectively called mixed tocopherols, are also important as antioxidants and anticoagulants. TOCOTRIENOLS Tocotrienols are much more potent antioxidants than tocopherols. They are very similar to tocopherols, as seen in Figure 5-2. Unfortunately, they are poorly assimilated and rapidly eliminated from the body."

- Dr. Steve Blake, Vitamins and Minerals Demystified (Get the book.)

"With the turn of the millennium, several clinical trials began to report no relationship between vitamin e, usually at a dose of 400 IU, and either cancer or heart disease. One of those with negative findings was the HOPE (Heart Outcomes Prevention Evaluation) study, a double-blind, placebo-controlled international trial of patients between ages 50 and 75 with vascular disease or diabetes, reported on patients that had been followed for five years.5 In 2003, after reviewing that study and others, the U.S."
- Gerald E. Markle and Frances B. McCrea, What If Medicine Disappeared? (Get the book.)

"Now the "doctor" in the beginning should be in the amount of vitamin e that we have in all of our foods, and which has been destroyed in processing. It is vitamin e and lecithin that are destroyed in our foods by cooking, and also eliminated in our refining processes at the mill. All of our fast foods and pastries today have been vitiated, along with our flours that have been so refined that we have knocked out the vitamin e entirely. Vitamin E is really a wonderful gland food. Our glands have become depleted in many ways from the foods that we now have. Your skin is as young as your glands."
- B. Jensen, Arthritis, Rheumatism and Osteoporosis (Get the book.)

"Twice as much vitamin e. 46. Vitamin K is: (a) Water soluble. (b) Fat soluble. (c) Not soluble. (d) Mineral soluble. 47. Vitamin K converts amino acid residues in certain proteins so that: (a) The proteins can bind magnesium. (b) The proteins can bind phosphorus. (c) The proteins can bind sodium. (d) The proteins can bind calcium. 48. Vitamin K is needed to synthesize two proteins, proteins C and S, that: (a) Accelerate clotting. (b) Slow clotting. (c) Are unrelated to clotting. (d) Are needed for strong bones. 49."
- Dr. Steve Blake, Vitamins and Minerals Demystified (Get the book.)

"Other nutrients and trace elements are important: vitamin e enhances the immune system, while a lack of Vitamin B6 can lower the white blood cells and reduce antibody production. But are we feeding our immune systems properly? Sadly, the answer seems to be 'No'. A survey into eating habits found that people were eating a wider variety of foods than they did ten years ago, but the nutritional content had not improved. The consequence of poor nutrition in the developed world is a diet-related sickness bill of billions of dollars annually."
- Dr Ron Roberts, Asthma Controlled Naturally: Techniques That Work (Get the book.)

"And vitamin e, when taken together with vitamin C, lowered the risk of stroke by 31 percent. Why was it buried? Well, for one thing, lots of people in the study didn't actually take the vitamins. (Guess what—you have to take them for them to work!) When the researchers looked at the subgroup of people who actually took their vitamins, the benefits mentioned above were found. When the population as a whole—vitamin takers and non-vitamin takers—were mixed together, the results weren't very impressive."

"However, studies have not found vitamin e to be beneficial for arresting the progression of cognitive impairment due to Alzheimer's. The use of B vitamins has also been advocated as a way to improve cognition because high levels of the amino acid homocysteine have been seen in patients with Alzheimer's disease. Since homocysteine is involved in vitamin B pathways, it was felt that lowering homocysteine with vitamin B therapy would lead to an improvement in cognition."

"For example, vitamin e has been shown in animal studies to reduce free radicals that cause oxidative stress in animal models of atherosclerosis. Based on studies like this many scientists have had high hopes that vitamins would prevent heart disease as well as other diseases like cancer. In fact, the studies that have been done, which I discuss later in this chapter, show that, if anything, they have the opposite effect. Most sober scientists who pay attention to the data have come to the conclusion that vitamins and supplements do not prevent heart disease and cancer."
