American Optometric Association – Vitamin E

Research has shown that vitamin E, found in nuts, fortified cereals and sweet potatoes, can protect cells of the eyes from damage. This damage is caused by unstable molecules called free radicals, which break down healthy eye tissue. When this happens, the risks for age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and cataract formation increase. Worldwide, more than 25 million people are affected by AMD. In the Western world, AMD is the leading cause of blindness in people over age 55. The number of people with AMD is expected to triple by 2025 as the population ages.

Take this vitamin to halt hair loss

In 2000, two Turkish scientists published a study in Cell Biochemistry and Function, showing a link between oxidative stress and hair loss.

By comparing the levels and activities of certain antioxidants – as well as substances indicating oxidative stress – between two groups of participants, one with hair loss and one without, the scientists found that the levels of antioxidants were significantly lower in those participants experiencing hair loss. In additon, the levels of substances showing oxidative stress were significantly higher for these participants.

How to Effectively Supplement Horses With Vitamin E

Vitamin E is an essential nutrient in the equine diet, meaning horses cannot make it themselves and must consume it through their diets. Horses can easily meet this requirement with adequate access to high-quality pasture. However, vitamin E levels drop rapidly in preserved forages (think hay). And horses with decreased vitamin E levels can be at risk for developing some neuromuscular conditions. As such, owners might need to supplement this vitamin in their horses’ diets, one veterinarian and researcher said.

Alzheimer’s disease linked with low levels of vitamin E tocotrienols and tocopherols, study says

A study has found that people with Alzheimer’s disease showed significantly lower plasmatic concentration of total tocopherols, total tocotrienols and total vitamin E (full-spectrum vitamin E consisting of all eight isoforms) compared to cognitively healthy subjects. The researchers also measured the leukocyte telomere length (LTL), which has been known to be associated with cognitive decline as well as decline in LTL with aging. The study showed the LTL is shorter in Alzheimer subjects and also that excessive nitrosylation of γ-tocopherol influences the risk of developing Alzheimer’s only in those individuals with preserved telomere length (i.e., biologically younger).
