Happy Valentine's Day!
 
This newsletter about vitamin E is the second in a series of newsletters detailing some of the specific action vitamins have on the body.

Many of my clients have asked about the recent negative headlines about Vitamin E.  This is another example of profit oriented drug interests skewing the news. 
  
Recent vitamin E studies, (according to them) showed that Vitamin E could be harmful.  Rather than go into the details of this myself, read the details in the articles in this newsletter, which  summarize several independent Vitamin E studies, and come to a completely different conclusion.
 
Hundreds of studies have conclusively proven the enourmous health benefits of vitamin E, especially the full-spectrum variety derived from palm oil (like our "Perfect E" shown at the left (which is not usually available in health food stores). 
  
What you really should know about Vitamin E. 
 Vitamin E is a well-known antioxidant and is  available in natural (d-) and synthetic (dl-) forms. The natural form is more expensive but also more active and is the preferred form. 
  
There are eight different molecules in two groups that make up the vitamin E family; tocopherols and tocotrienols.  Each group contains four forms of vitamin E named alpha, beta, gamma, and delta.
 
Take advantage of the full spectrum of vitamin E for maximum disease protection.
Vitamin E is known to confer many health benefits including support for the heart and brain as well as being an immune system booster.
 
Many people are surprised to learn that this critical vitamin exists in eight different natural forms, all of which are required for vibrant health, and typically, only one of which is provided in most multi-vitamin supplements.

 

Study supports prostate cancer benefits of tocotrienols

The link between Vitamin E and cancer benefits has received extra backing from a new study, which found that a mix of different forms of the vitamin helped prevent prostate tumor growth in mice.  

 

 "Mixed tocotrienols inhibited prostate tumor growth in TRAMP mice without any signs of toxicity," wrote the researchers from Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey. 

   

Tocotrienol: An Emerging Neuroprotective Bioactive.

Palm Oil contains the primary phytonutrients of  vitamin E (tocotrienols and tocopherols), carotenoids, phytosterols, plant squalene, coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) and phospholipids.

 

These are all fat soluble and are co-extracted into crude palm oil which is used in better quality, full-spectrum Vitamin E products.

Tocotrienols Shown To Be Effective In Lowering Fat Levels In Blood
Scientists from Singapore found that tocotrienols, which are members of the Vitamin E family, are effective in lowering the levels of triglyceride, a form of fat in the blood.
  
High levels of triglyceride are closely linked to an increased risk of cardiovascular and metabolic diseases.

Vitamin E shows immune boosting potential

Tocotrienols, a form of vitamin E, may enhance the function of immune cells and help ensure healthy immune function as we age, suggests new data from Tufts University.

 

Immune function and the activity of T cells naturally declines with age, but daily supplements of a mixture of the four types of tocotrienol led to improvements in the T cell function in old mice, according to findings published in the Journal of Nutrition.

 

Antioxidant supplements help arteries stay healthy in people at risk for heart disease.
Research recently reported in the journal Nutrition and Metabolism, show vitamins C and E, coenzyme Q10 and selenium produce multiple positive effects on sugar and fat metabolism, blood pressure and arterial flexibility (which allows blood to move freely through the body).

Invisible Vitamins May Be Next Big Heart Health Breakthrough

 

Each of the 8 forms of vitamin E work differently from the rest. But except for recently, about 95% of all vitamin E studies have focused on  the single form called alpha-tocopherol.  Often,  
these results don't apply to other forms.  Today, these "invisible" fractions of Vitamin E have been shown to be critical for good health.

General News - Who Does The FDA Work For Anyway?


It certainly doesn't seem to be us citizens! Now they are going after Vitamin C, the injectable kind, used by many licensed physicians to help with  multiple conditions. 
  
The FDA has just notified a pharmacy that they can no longer be allowed to manufacture or distribute injectable vitamin C. This is despite its remarkable power to heal conditions that conventional medicine can't touch.
  
On December 28, 2010 the FDA ordered certain small manufacturers to stop making injectable Vitamin C and several other injectable nutrients which are always used under a (holistic or Advanced health Care) physician's supervision by classifying IV Vitamin C, Magnesium and certain B Vitamins as "New Drugs".
  
Read the full article, including the case of a seriously ill man who survived because of this treatment, and take action using the link at the bottom of the article which tells the White House and FDA to leave our nutrients alone!  Please help reverse this outrageous decision! 

Is the media nutritionally challenged or just controlled by the drug industry?


Here they go again. This time it's antioxidents!  In their January 25 issue, Newsweek published a scientifically unsupportable article, claiming that antioxidants "may not be good for your health."
  
The Alliance for Natural Health asked natural biomedical researcher and physician Jonathan Wright, MD, to comment -- and he didn't mince words!
