San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) September 14, 2011
San Francisco Skin Care Products, Vitamin Express announces Vitamin E, the nutrient that is found in every cell of the body, is one of the few nutrients that no upper level of toxicity has been found. It was the star of nutrition back in the 1930’s when it was first discovered and realized that without its presence the ability to bear children could not exist. Later, it went on to be the nutrient for heart health and burn and scar prevention. In the 1960’s, it was reported throughout the world as the nutrient for longevity, that if a cell maintained high enough levels, it would not die and remain healthy. Then it was heralded as an anti-cancer nutrient for its healing ability. In 2004, it was found beneficial for Alzheimer patients, yet in that same year the hatchet fell.
A meta-analysis was released by researchers at Johns Hopkins that stated that vitamin E over 200IU was associated with early death, leading to a conclusion that people should not take more than 200IU per day. Vitamin E panic took place and sale dropped worldwide, even though the research was refuted by scientists internationally.
The most recent and comprehensive study published by researchers Abner EL, Schmitt FA, Mendiondo MS, et al. in Vitamin E and All-cause Mortality: A Meta-Analysis. Current Aging Science 2011 Jan 14th, concludes that daily doses of up to 5,500 IU did not appear to affect mortality risk in adults.
The researchers analyzed 57 randomized controlled trials that tested the effects of vitamin E in adults for at least one year. On average, supplementation lasted 2.6 years. The studies, published between 1988 and 2009, recorded the number of deaths that occurred and concluded that vitamin E is safe. Though this is not sensational news, this study needs national media attention since it confirms what researchers have known and what the public needs to know.
