Safe Vitamin E Benefits

EA recent study reveals that no level of vitamin E in the diet or from any normal use of supplements should be a concern. The review, published in the Journal of Lipid Research, shows that despite concerns that have been expressed about possible health risks from high intake of vitamin E, biological mechanisms exist to routinely eliminate excess levels of the vitamin, making it almost impossible to take a harmful amount. An internationally recognized expert on this micronutrient, Maret Traber from Public Health and Human Sciences at Oregon State University says “Taking too much vitamin E is not the real concern.”

On the other hand, “A much more important issue is that more than 90 percent of people in the U.S. have inadequate levels of vitamin E in their diet” Traber added.

Vitamin E is an antioxidant and a very important nutrient for proper function of many organs, nerves and muscles, and is also an anticoagulant that can reduce blood clotting. It can be found in oils, meat and some other foods, but is often consumed at inadequate dietary levels, especially with increasing emphasis on low-fat diets.

Many people take vitamin E supplements to supply this deficiency. “Toxic levels of vitamin E in the body simply do not occur,” Traber said. “Unlike some other fat-soluble vitamins such as vitamins A and D, it’s not possible for toxic levels of vitamin E to accumulate in the liver or other tissues.”
