Vitamin E has been known to have positive effects on both bone and muscle mass due to its antioxidant properties leading to lower fracture risks according to researchers from the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. These new results support previous findings that higher intakes of vitamin E are associated with higher lean muscle mass, higher BMD, and lower fracture risk in elderly man and women.
Vitamin E is found in many foods including vegetable oils, cereals, meat, poultry, eggs, fruits, vegetables, and wheat germ oil. It is also available as a supplement. Vitamin E is often used for treating and preventing diseases of the heart and blood vessels including hardening of the arteries, heart attack, chest pain, leg pain due to blocked arteries, high blood pressure, and is also used for treating diabetes and its complications.
