Vitamin E effects

Olympian Labs Vita-Vitamin  Multi-Vitamin/Mineral 120Tabs
Vitamin E is a strong antioxidant, especially when taken in conjunction with selenium. It also strengthens the immune system; enhances the ability of brain cells to use oxygen; increases the ability of cells to make energy; helps preserve the lung function of elderly people; and it may slow the aging process by protecting the skin and brain cells (which have high percentages of fat compared to the rest of the body’s cells) from free radicals (as people age, their ability to absorb E decreases).

It has been used by NASA astronauts to fight the breakdown of red blood cells from radiation. In the past few decades in the U.S., there seems to be a direct correlation between the decline in the amount of vitamin E in the diet and the rise in heart attacks, but hard evidence is still lacking.

Recent evidence indicates that an optimum level of 200 lU/day can vitamine
protect the elderly from heart disease and dementia, as well as boost effects the immune system; higher doses have not led to greater protection. When given in doses of 2000 lU/day, it may slow the progress of Alzheimer’s to a moderate degree, though it is still not known whether it can protect healthy people from getting the disease. A dosage of as little as 50 lU/day, or five times the minimum daily recommended intake for men, can help protect against lung, colorectal, and — especially —prostate cancers.
Regular supplementation has also been proven to protect against exercise-induced DNA damage that may lead to cancer. In lab rats, it has been shown to prevent liver damage and liver cancer caused by DHEA.
It also helps the body utilize vitamin A better, and raises the levels of HDLs, the “good” cholesterol.

It is reported to extend the life of red blood cells, dilate the blood vessels, and thin the blood. It can even halt, and sometimes reverse, nerve damage caused by such neurological disorders as cystic fibrosis and chronic liver disease.
Vitamin E breaks down sodium nitrate, a food additive and suspected carcinogen; blocks the formation of nitrosamine, another carcinogen; prevents lung damage from nitrogen oxides; and can counteract the effects of a fatty meal, especially damage done to blood vessels from high cholesterol.
