Higher vitamin E intake linked with lower blood pressure

Higher vitamin E intake linked with lower blood pressureOctober 15 2014. The Journal of Nutritional Science and Vitaminology published an article on October 9 that reveals an association between higher vitamin E intake and a lower risk of hypertension.

“Oxidative damage and free radical production in the endothelium are closely involved in the pathogenesis of the atherosclerotic process which leads to cardiovascular disease,” explain authors Akiko Kuwabara of Osaka Shoin Women’s University and colleagues. “Since vitamin E is a fat-soluble vitamin with potent antioxidative activity and one of its main physiological roles is considered to be the inhibition of unsaturated fatty acid oxidation, vitamin E is a promising candidate against oxidative stress-induced unfavorable consequences.”

Dr Kuwabara and associates evaluated data from 1,405 men and 2,102 women aged 40 and older who participated in Japan’s National Health and Nutrition Survey 2007. Dietary records were analyzed for the intake of vitamin E and other nutrients. The presence of hypertension was defined as systolic blood pressure of 140 mmHg or higher, diastolic blood pressure of 90 mmHg or higher, or use of an antihypertensive drug.
