Study: Vitamin E Can Boost Immunotherapy Responses by Reinvigorating Dendritic Cells

Researchers at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center have found that vitamin E can enhance immunotherapy responses by stimulating the activity of dendritic cells in the tumor, according to findings published in Cancer Discovery.

The researchers found that vitamin E directly binds and blocks the activity of the SHP1 checkpoint protein in dendritic cells, which increases antigen presentation and primes T cells for an anti-tumor immune response. Further, the results lead to a possible new therapeutic approach to improve immunotherapy outcomes, including combinations with vitamin E, as well as directly targeting SHP1 in dendritic cells.

Study: Tocotrienols Show Benefits for Alzheimer’s Disease

NYC, New York—study published in the journal of Biochemistry and Biophysics Reports suggests that tocotrienols may improve brain function in Alzheimer’s Disease (AD). The study suggests that the vitamin E compounds—alpha-tocotrienol (α-T3), gamma-tocotrienol (γ-T3), and alpha-tocopherol—may reduce amyloid beta (Aβ) plaque accumulation and improved cognitive health.

Patients with AD have lower tocopherols and tocotrienol levels compared to the healthy population, furthering the link between vitamin E and cognitive health, noted Bryan See, Vice President of PhytoGaia, in a press release outlining the findings.

Team Investigates Anti-Obesity Effects of Vitamin E Using Mouse Model

Obesity and its consequences on overall health have become a serious global problem. However, very few substances or drugs can fight obesity. In a recent study, Japanese researchers investigated the anti-obesity effects of tocotrienols, a subtype of vitamin E. Experiments showed that tocotrienols significantly reduce the weight gained by mice on a high-fat diet, while also lowering “bad” cholesterol levels. The results pave the way to efficient treatments for obesity.

Dermatologists Break Down Exactly How Vitamin E Benefits the Skin—and Why You’ll Want to Double Down On It

If you’re on a quest for vibrant, dewy skin, you’ve likely been told to double down on vitamin E. It’s a nutrient dermatologists regularly preach the importance of. But knowing exactly how it benefits the skin and the best ways to reap these benefits isn’t so straightforward.

For example, will eating vitamin E-rich foods yield the same results as applying vitamin E-containing topical products? And who exactly should be prioritizing vitamin E anyway? You’ve come to the right place for answers. Here, dermatologists answer these questions and more.

Hair loss: The supplement which can increase hair growth ‘significantly’ – study findings

In the study 21 volunteers were randomly assigned to orally receive 100 mg of mixed tocotrienols daily while 17 volunteers were assigned to receive placebo capsules orally. The volunteers were monitored for the number of hairs in a predetermined scalp area. The study found the number of hairs of the volunteers in the tocotrienol supplementation group “increased significantly” as compared to the placebo group.

Tocoheal: All-in-one dressings with vitamin E tocotrienols

Globally, there are 8.1 million people who have wounds with or without infection. Rising wound incidence has imposed substantial burdens on healthcare expenditure. Despite being a common presentation in the clinical setting, providing optimal wound care remains a challenge. Normal acute wounds in healthy individuals tend to resolve spontaneously without clinical intervention. However, improper wound care may lead to undesirable complications such as wound infections or abnormal wound healing, resulting in uneven scar tissue formation. Affordable wound treatments that improve wound healing outcomes are desirable and beneficial to patients and the overall healthcare system.
