Is Your Vitamin E Intake High Enough To Prevent Osteoporosis?

In a recently published study in The Journal of Nutrition, researchers examined the link between vitamin E intake and bone health in an animal model.

Vitamin E intake has recently been the focus of multiple bone health studies due to its reported beneficial effects. For this reason, scientists believe that vitamin E may be particularly helpful to individuals who consume a high-fat diet since excess body fat is associated with decreased bone density and thus, a higher likelihood of developing osteoporosis. Additionally, several animal studies have demonstrated that a high-fat diet, which causes oxidative stress, significantly impairs bones’ structural and mechanical properties. Although some studies have shown beneficial effects of Vitamin E, a known antioxidant, other studies have suggested that Vitamin E may have negative effects on bone health.

Experimental ‘golden’ potato could hold power to prevent disease in developing nations

An experimental “golden” potato could hold the power to prevent disease and death in developing countries where residents rely heavily upon the starchy food for sustenance, new research suggests.

A serving of the yellow-orange lab-engineered potato has the potential to provide as much as 42 percent of a child’s recommended daily intake of vitamin A and 34 percent of a child’s recommended intake of vitamin E, according to a recent study co-led by researchers at The Ohio State University.

Vitamin E: A Closer Look at Tocotrienols

When vitamin E was discovered in 1922, it was discovered as alpha-tocopherol. Between that time and 1940, scientists delved into tocopherol research, ranging from alpha-tocopherol’s isolation from plants2, chemical identification3,4, complete synthesis5, and antioxidant activity6. In fact, the tocopherol form remained the main focus of vitamin E science for decades, and, as such, research on tocopherols boomed.7,8

Tocotrienols were discovered later, in the mid-1960s.9,10 Tocotrienols’ ability to lower lipids was first reported in the early 1980s; in the 1990s, tocotrienols were associated with reduction of cardiovascular diseases and inhibition of cancers.11 Despite the growing research on tocotrienols, they are still often confused with tocopherols and were not even properly listed in the Merck Index, the encyclopedia of chemicals, drugs, and biologicals, until 2001.12
