About this book

Introduction

This comprehensive volume examines the role of vitamin E as an essential micronutrient in human health and its extensive clinical benefits. Sections cover a wide breadth of topics, including vitamin E intake and recommended daily allowance, understanding the biological activities of Vitamin E and observed physiological effects, benefits of vitamin E on upper respiratory infections, cardiovascular disease, age-related macular degeneration, Alzheimer’s disease, and intake safety. The text serves to emphasize the importance of vitamin E in relation to disease prevention as well as to raise awareness of the number of health conditions where an increased intake of vitamin E can be of potential significance. It explores vitamin E in an up-to-date, science based, applicable real-life perspective and offers pragmatic solutions for its safe and personalized use beyond the various methodological and statistical controversies.

Intended for the medical and nutritional community, Vitamin E in Human Health will not only be an expansive resource for healthcare professionals, but also makes efforts to stimulate increased support for vitamin E research and further exploration of the safe and efficacious use for this essential micronutrient.
