Nutrition Digest: Vitamin E and its emerging health benefits

Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that supports your health; however, intake still remains low among consumers globally. There is an ongoing discussion about the optimal vitamin E status and its role in addressing liver and brain health beyond nutritional recommendations.

New and ongoing research suggests that vitamin E at higher doses may help individuals at risk, such as those with age-related macular degeneration, cognitive impairment, and non-alcoholic fatty liver. It is important to revisit the required intake levels for vitamin E for these conditions and further research is needed to support qualified health claims.

Join us for the first in our webinar digest series to hear Prof. Jeffrey Blumberg, DSM’s Prof. Manfred Eggersdorfer and Jacob Bauly discuss the emerging health benefits of vitamin E.

  • Vitamin C – benefits beyond immunity Recorded: May 19 2016 64 mins
    Prof. Jens Lykkesfeldt, Prof. Manfred Eggersdorfer, Jacob Bauly
    Vitamin C is an essential nutrient with many important functions in the body, such as immune-system stimulation, growth and repair of tissue, cardiovascular health, bone health and neutralizing harmful free radicals. Recent science has highlighted its potential health benefits, reaching far beyond its antioxidant function for which vitamin C is primarily known. As vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin which the body cannot produce by itself, it must be obtained from the diet or from supplements. Yet, although vitamin C is a common constituent in most fruits and vegetables, many people are still deficient worldwide.

    Join us on May 19th, so that you can be one of the first to see our new webinar on the role of vitamin C in human health and disease. The session will be presented by Prof. Jens Lykkesfeldt, Faculty of Health & Medical Sciences at University of Copenhagen, and he will be joined by DSM’s Prof. Manfred Eggersdorfer and Jacob Bauly. Together, they will discuss the science behind vitamin C, provide examples of its key known functions, as well as share the potential health benefits of consuming it in higher doses. If you miss the first showing, don’t worry - the webinar will also be made available on demand.

  • Vitamin D: proven public health benefits Recorded: Feb 17 2016 57 mins
    Professor Mairead Kiely, Manfred Eggersdorfer and Jacob Bauly
    Vitamin D intake is low among the world’s population, which is a major contributor to clinical deficiency and a persistently high prevalence of low vitamin D status, particularly during wintertime at high (or low) latitude.

    Vitamin D deficiency contributes to the development of nutritional rickets in children and osteomalacia in adults, both seriously debilitating conditions that are completely preventable with an adequate dietary supply of vitamin D and calcium. Regardless of which international recommended intake is selected, the current supply of vitamin D in commonly consumed foods makes it unfeasible for most people to meet their dietary requirements for vitamin D without supplementation.

    Emerging scientific evidence from the EC-funded ODIN project suggests that many foods, including fish, eggs, meats as well as dairy products could be part of a public health strategy for vitamin D deficiency prevention in the population. This would positively impact public health in a cost-effective and inclusive way.

    While most European countries are impacted by suboptimal vitamin D status, Finland is the exception. In 2003, the country introduced a national regulation which includes mandatory fortification of milk and margarine spreads. The population has now achieved a vitamin D status of 75nmol/L. Recently, the Swedish National Food Agency (NFA) proposed to introduce a similar regulation that will go a step further by extending the products subject to mandatory vitamin D fortification.

  • Vitamin D: beyond bone health Recorded: Sep 23 2015 56 mins
    Dr. Bruce Ames, Children’s Hospital, Oakland Research Institute, Oakland, CA, Dr. Manfred Eggersdorfer DSM, Jacob Bauly DSM
    Vitamin D has traditionally been closely linked to bone health. It prevents rickets in children, as well as lowers the risk of fracture and osteoporosis in adults and the elderly. The links between vitamin D and bone health will be highlighted as part of the upcoming World Osteoporosis Day on 20th October 2015.

    Articles discussing the diverse positive effects of vitamin D have recently been hitting the headlines, with 3,500 studies published every year and ongoing research into its emerging health benefits. Despite this, 88% of the global population have low vitamin D intake due to poor nutrition and sun exposure. There is still a lack of knowledge among consumers about the long-term effects of vitamin D deficiency.

    Join our webinar on vitamin D and its health benefits, which will be presented by the acclaimed scientist in biochemistry and molecular biology, Dr. Bruce Ames. He will be accompanied by DSM’s Prof. Manfred Eggersdorfer and Jacob Bauly. They will present the latest findings on vitamin D and the emerging benefits across different life stages and conditions. Dr. Ames will also discuss his groundbreaking triage theory, which demonstrates that when micronutrients are scarce, the body uses them to compensate the episodic shortages at the expense of long-term survival, which leads to potential DNA damage and negative effects on human health.

  • Vitamin E: new research on health benefits and proven safety Recorded: Jun 23 2015 16 mins
    Prof. Jeffrey Blumberg, Ph.D Senior Scientist and Director Tufts University, Dr. Manfred Eggersdorfer DSM, Jacob Bauly DSM
    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.

    In our aging society, Alzheimer’s type dementia is a major concern. The disease can have a devastating impact on quality of life, with patients relying on caregivers for standard daily living activities. Whether it is memory impairment, deterioration, confusion or anger suffered by patients, this highly disruptive neurological disease demands attention.

    Vitamin E is vital for neural function and its deficiency can lead to neurological dysfunction, causing problems with co-ordination, balance and speech. It also has an antioxidant function in the brain – as a free radical scavenger and constituent of neural membranes, preventing the oxidation of lipids and PUFAs.

    Now, recent studies have found that maintaining a high level of vitamin E results in marked improvements for mental health and can be linked individually with a decrease in the onset of Alzheimer’s type dementia.

    Join our webinar and hear our speakers Prof. Maurice Dyksen and DSM’s Dr. Manfred Eggersdorfer and Jacob Bauly present their latest findings on vitamin E and its potential role in curbing the onset of Alzheimer’s disease.

  • El rol de la industria en la lucha contra la malnutrición Recorded: May 6 2015 63 mins
    Hector Cori Director DSM LATAM, Alfonso Valenzuela Bonomo Doctor en Ciencias Uni. De Chile y de la Uni. de los Andes
    La malnutrición es un problema general a nivel mundial, ya que las personas no consumen el nivel suficiente de nutrientes esenciales. A su vez, la obesidad se ha convertido en una preocupación creciente porque se consumen demasiados alimentos para el nivel de actividad. A este ritmo, la sociedad actual no podrá cumplir con los objetivos de la Asamblea Mundial de la Salud (WHA) 2025 en materia de nutrición y es esencial que los programas de nutrición se desarrollen aún más para mejorar la situación nutricional. La fortificación de los alimentos es una manera efectiva de producir alimentos altamente nutritivos y combatir la malnutrición y así lograr un mejor desarrollo socioeconómico. La industria de alimentos, bebidas y suplemento dietario cumple una función clave en la promoción de la nutrición de la salud pública al desarrollar opciones nutritivas, saludables y asequibles para los consumidores.

    En este seminario web informativo, el experto independiente Alfonso Valenzuela Bonomo junto con Hector Cori de DSM, director de Nutrition Science & Advocacy LATAM, debatirán sobre la necesidad de la colaboración entre sectores (gobierno, organizaciones civiles y empresas) para combatir la malnutrición.

    Fatty liver – and the focus is on fatty liver caused by lifestyle, not by alcohol - is a growing issue worldwide. A non-alcoholic fatty liver is frequently associated with obesity, insulin resistance and diabetes type 2. Today, there are approximately 1.5 billion overweight or obese people worldwide, and more than 300 million have diabetes type 2. Non-alcoholic fatty liver is also observed in 16% to 20% of normal weight individuals, and often has no symptoms.

    In this informative webinar, independent expert Dr. Arun Sanyal – a leading scientist from Virginia Commonwealth University – joins DSM’s Dr. Manfred Eggersdorfer, Professor for Healthy Ageing at Groningen University, and Jacob Bauly to present the latest research on the role of vitamin E supplementation in limiting the negative health implications of fatty liver.

    The results of several human studies have demonstrated that vitamin E was found to be effective in reducing the onset and development of a non-alcoholic fatty liver, was safe in the applied dose and did not lead to side effects such as weight gain. Currently, there is no approved drug for the treatment of a non-alcoholic fatty liver. It has been shown that vitamin E directed at a defined daily dose improves the liver condition in non-diabetic adults with a non-alcoholic fatty liver.
