Metabolic syndrome may increase vitamin E need
October 7 2015. An article published on October 7, 2015 in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition reveals that in those with metabolic syndrome, the need for vitamin E could be greater than among those without it.
Researchers at Ohio State University gave of 10 healthy participants and 10 subjects with metabolic syndrome a natural alpha-tocopherol supplement. Dr Bruno and his associates determined that those with metabolic syndrome absorbed less vitamin E than those without the syndrome. However, the researchers found that drinking milk, which contains fat that aids in vitamin E absorption, increased the amount absorbed to between 26.1% and 29.5%, depending upon the health status of the participant. (It is estimated that 10% of vitamin E is absorbed when not simultaneously consumed with fat.)
