Vitamin E


Clinical Study Title:
The effects of endurance exercise and vitamin E on oxidative stress in the elderly.

Plain English Summary:
This study looked at the use of vitamin E supplementation on exercise and oxidative stress for older adults. There were four groups in this study: an exercise group taking daily vitamin E, an exercise group taking a daily placebo, a sedentary group taking daily vitamin E, or a sedentary group taking a placebo. A total of 59 participants were enrolled. At the conclusion of the 4 months, those participants who were exercising and taking the vitamin E supplements faired the best. They improved their fitness level, and lowered their oxidative stress, blood pressure and weight. Those sedentary adults who took the vitamin E supplements also had reduction in their blood pressure and oxidative stress. This suggests that daily vitamin E supplements can help all adults to lower oxidative stress and blood pressures.
