Natural Vitamin E Dramatically Reduces Heart Disease, by Byron Richards, Aug. 2007

A new randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled cardiovascular study evaluating natural vitamin E, synthetic vitamin C, and synthetic beta-carotene has shown that natural vitamin E reduced cardiovascular death or serious cardiovascular disease by a statistically significant 13%, the primary end point of the study. Natural vitamin E also showed improvement in secondary end points, including a 22% reduction in heart attacks, a 27% reduction in strokes (31% when combined with vitamin C), and a 9% reduction in cardiovascular death. These results for natural vitamin E are nothing short of astounding as they used the gold standard of human testing!

Comment: Many studies of vitamin E use a synthetic version which is known to be poorly absorbed by the body.  Also, most vitamin E sold today consists of only one fraction of the vitamin known as alpha-tocopherol.  The vitamin E family consists of eight different parts, each of which plays an important preventative role in the body. Watch this page for an informative article on vitamin E I'll be posting shortly. Click here to purchase natural  vitamin E with all eight subparts.
