Vitamin E – Response to supplementation

December 05, 2023

Vitamin E (tocopherol) is a fat-soluble vitamin. In addition to being an antioxidant, it is essential for the operation of the immune system and for cardiovascular health, and prevents cataracts, age-related macular degeneration and fatty liver disease. It is also essential for the skin due to its anti-inflammatory and photoprotective properties. Vitamin E deficiency is rare in healthy individuals and is usually caused by diseases in which nutrients are not properly absorbed, such as Crohn’s disease, liver diseases or cystic fibrosis. Vitamin E poisoning is also rare, but can cause risk of haemorrhaging, muscle weakness, fatigue, nausea and diarrhoea.
One study has correlated variations in the BUD13/ZNF25, CYP4F2 and NKAIN3 genes in men with abnormal levels of vitamin E obtained through supplements.
