VITAMIN E CONFIRMED SAFE AT HIGH DOSES
The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition has published recently the article ?Vitamins E and C are safe across a broad rage of intakes?. Its results should help reassure consumers about the safety of vitamin E for a healthy population at the most common daily doses on the market ?400 IU and 200 IU- for vitamin single supplements. In reviewing the available scientific literature on vitamins E and C, the scientists reviewed clinical trials as well as epidemiological studies in humans, determining there was sufficient information from human data to support a conclusion on safety. The review of the scientific literature encompassed 95 references. Vitamins E and C are among the most popular dietary supplements. Many studies suggest that these antioxidant supplements, either alone or in combination with other supplements, can help promote overall good health and be helpful in lowering the risk of specific chronic diseases, such as Alzheimer?s, age-related macular degeneration, cataracts, some types of cancer and ischemic heart disease.
