Vitamin E


Clinical Study Title:
Antioxidant vitamins C and E improve endothelial function in children with hyperlipidemia: Endothelial Assessment of Risk from Lipids in Youth (EARLY) Trial.

Plain English Summary:
This study looked at the use of vitamin E and C in combination for the treatment of hyperlipidemia in children. Hyperlipidemia is a risk factor for many chronic illnesses, such as atherosclerosis and coronary heart disease. A total of 15 children were given either a placebo or a daily combination of vitamin E and C, as well as put on a special diet. The use of the vitamin combination helped to improved brachial functioning. This suggests that a daily supplement including both vitamin C and E can help to improve heart function as well as help to reduce the risk of atherosclerosis and coronary heart disease.
