Vitamin E: new research on health benefits and proven safety

Presented by

Prof. Jeffrey Blumberg, Ph.D Senior Scientist and Director Tufts University, Dr. Manfred Eggersdorfer DSM, Jacob Bauly DSM

About this talk

Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant, an essential nutrient needed to maintain cellular structures and functions, thus helping support health. However, intake still remains low among consumers globally. There is an ongoing discussion about the optimal vitamin E status in healthy populations and its role in maintaining liver and brain function outside of nutritional recommendations. New and ongoing research suggests that vitamin E at higher doses may help maintain tissue function in specific risk groups, such as age-related macular degeneration, Alzheimer’s disease and non-alcoholic fatty liver. Applications like these require the advice and supervision of health care professionals. It is important to revisit both the required doses and safety for targeted vitamin E intakes for these conditions. Further research will be required to support qualified health claims for mitigating the outcomes of these diseases. Join the latest webinar in our series on research related to vitamin E. Hear our speakers Prof. Jeffrey Blumberg and DSM’s Prof. Manfred Eggersdorfer and Jacob Bauly present their latest findings on vitamin E safety and its implications on the recommended intake across different life stages and conditions. *This information is solely for scientific informational purposes only and not intended for marketing and/or sales claims purposes.
