FDA’s new nutrition label regulation for fat-soluble vitamins

In 2020, FDA expects fat-soluble vitamins to be measured in metric units rather than international units as was expected in the past. Once the IU unit for vitamin E is obsolete and changed to mg of alpha-tocopherol, natural alpha-tocopherol (or d-alpha-tocopherol) will be worth twice the amount of synthetic alpha-tocopherol (or dl-alpha-tocopherol) as vitamin E.

Familial Dysautonomia Affects Jews Almost Exclusively

Tocotrienol from palm may slow the progression of diabetic kidney disease, says new study

Supplementation with a full-spectrum palm tocotrienol complex may slow the progression of diabetic kidney disease in those with type 2 diabetes, a new study published in Nutrients1 found. Patients with diabetic kidney disease have an increased risk of cardiovascular disease events, hospitalization, cognitive dysfunction, and poor quality of life, say the researchers. In the randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial, 45 patients who have had type 2 diabetes for an average of 18.5 years, and diabetic kidney disease, were assigned to receive either placebo or the tocotrienol complex (400 mg/day) for eight weeks.

Why vitamin E effect is often a matter of luck until now

Vitamin E’s positive effects often fail to manifest themselves as strongly as expected, but sometimes administering vitamin E actually has detrimental effects. An international team has now found a possible cause for this.
