Coronary Heart Disease & Vitamin E
Dr. Berg talks about the relationship between vitamin E and coronary heart disease (CHD). Vitamin E in nature always comes in a complex, not as an individual part isolated. Find a supplement with tocotrienols, NOT JUST tocopherols.
(OMNS) Heart disease is the number one killer in the United States, and the evidence supporting vitamin E’s efficacy in preventing and reversing heart disease is overwhelming.
The reason one nutrient can cure so many different illnesses is because a deficiency of one nutrient can cause many different illnesses.
Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant in the body’s lipid (fat) phase. It can prevent LDL lipid peroxidation caused by free radical reactions. Its ability to protect cell membranes from oxidation is of crucial importance in preventing and reversing many degenerative diseases.
In addition, vitamin E inhibits blood clotting (platelet aggregation and adhesion) and prevents plaque enlargement and rupture.
Finally, it has anti-inflammatory properties, which may also prove to be very important in the prevention of heart disease.
If all Americans daily supplemented with a good multivitamin-multimineral, plus extra vitamins C and E, it could save thousands of lives a month.
