Vitamin E supplements risky

It may actually increase mortality and the risk of bleeding strokes


 

This article about the most recent research on vitamin E supplementation is from the authoritative Wellness Letter published by the University of California at Berkeley. It perfectly encapsulates the confusion over what to take and when. For the most part, the latest findings aren’t encouraging. Taking vitamin E hasn’t been shown effective in reducing heart disease, lung or prostate cancer. It may actually increase mortality and the risk of bleeding strokes. It’s still unclear whether it helps fight Alzheimer’s or age-related blindness. Berkeley’s bottom line: avoid it unless in food form or in a multivitamin.

  1. One more study that finds that whole-food supplements and vitamins are so much better for the human body than synthetic or fractionated vitamins. Fractionated and synthetic vitamins are essentially poisons and study’s are proving this fact more and more. Thank you for your posting.
