Mainstream medicine has put enough energy into bashing vitamin E to light an entire city. I’ve seen studies blaming it for cancer, heart attacks, bleeding problems, and more.
They act like this is some kind of shady lab chemical… and not the essential nutrient that it is!
Now, Americans are paying the price. New research reveals that the folks who need vitamin E the most aren’t getting nearly enough – because vitamin E can repair the damage of metabolic syndrome.
If you’re among the estimate 47 million Americans with metabolic syndrome, you know the score. You’re facing a risk of diabetes, heart disease, stroke and an early death.
But vitamin E can fight free radicals and SLASH your risk of disease. You also need it for immune function… your nerves… keeping your arteries clear… and more.
But here’s the problem uncovered by the new study: If you’ve got metabolic syndrome, your body absolutely struggles to use vitamin E even when it gets some, so you need up to 50 percent MORE than everyone else.
Vitamin E is fat-soluble, which means it needs fats to be used in the body. But it’s also drawn to those same fats, including any of the stuff rushing through the blood.
If you have plenty of fat in the blood – and if you’ve got metabolic syndrome, you almost certainly do – vitamin E will follow it around like a lost puppy. It clings to the fat and stays in the blood.
When you have a blood test, WOW! It looks like you have all the vitamin E you need and then some.
As the new study shows, you don’t – because much of that vitamin E never leaves the blood and never reaches the tissue where it’s needed to help build and repair muscles and other cells.
So, while the tests might say your E levels are fine, you could be falling short in a big way – and that could be a key reason metabolic syndrome often gets worse instead of better.
It’s not just patients with metabolic syndrome who need to boost their E intake. Studies show that nearly every American fails to meet the minimum amounts set by the guidelines (and those levels are likely too low for most people to begin with).
Don’t surrender to the mainstream bully tactics, and don’t give in to the fear-mongering. Vitamin E is safe, inexpensive and available both on its own and as part of age-fighting antioxidant blends.
