Background on Vitamin E
Vitamin E can promote the secretion of sex hormones, increase the number of male sperm, increase the concentration of female estrogen, and improve fertility. A lack of vitamin E can result in testicular atrophy, skin cell degeneration, and infertility. Doctors use vitamin E to prevent threatened abortion and habitual abortion. Data has shown that vitamin E can maintain blood flow smoothness and can effectively reduce and prevent heart disease. Vitamin E can protect DNA from UV radiation, prevent cancer, protect white blood cells and cell membranes, improve human immunity, and help the body fight against diseases.
In a Clinical study by Dr. Demetrius Albanes, daily Vitamin E supplementation reduced prostate cancer by 32% and the death rate from prostate cancer by 41%. It is a powerful antioxidant that flushes free radicals out of your system, promoting greater prostate health and higher energy levels. Researchers from New York's University of Rochester found that adding Vitamin E to cancer cells inhibits the production of the androgen receptor (AR) which is needed in order for prostate cancer cells to grow and develop. With a decrease of 25% - 50% in the number of cancer cells. They found D-α tocopheryl acid succinate to be most effective.
The natural form of vitamin E, D-α tocopheryl acid succinate, is better retained by the body compared to the synthetic form. The bioavailability (available for use by the body) is 2:1 for natural-source Vitamin E over synthetic Vitamin E.
In October of 2011, the Journal of the American Medical Association reported on the long-term follow-up of a $114 million government study that showed taking synthetic vitamin E increased the risk of prostate cancer by 17%.
Main Functions of Vitamin E
Vitamin E Succinate takes vitamin E's antioxidant action a step further and is water-soluble. Succinate feeds directly into the Krebs cycle, our major metabolic pathway for generating energy. This extra dimension from succinate significantly extends the protective properties of vitamin E.
Vitamin E succinate is may inhibit growth and induced apoptotic cell death in estrogen-receptor-negative human breast cancer cell lines. Vitamin E succinate is a potent novel antineoplastic agent with high selectivity and cooperativity with tumor necrosis factor related apoptosis-inducing ligand. Vitamin E succinate may be of clinical use in the treatment of aggressive human breast cancers, particularly those that are resistant to anti-estrogen therapy. Alpha-tocopheryl succinate can suppress the expression of prostate-specific antigen (PSA), a marker for the progression of prostate cancer. 300 IUs of natural vitamin E per day may reduce lung cancer risk by 61% and decrease prostate tumor formation by 75%. Vitamin E fights existing prostate cancer tumors and may inhibit the growth of human breast cancer cells
Aside from its cancer-preventive potential, natural vitamin E has also shown promise for:
- Relieving the majority of symptoms associated with nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), a common obesity-related fatty liver disease.
- Helping to delay loss of cognitive function, such as planning and organizing, in Alzheimer's patients.
- Lowering your risk of age-related macular degeneration (AMD), a leading cause of vision loss in the elderly.
- Boosting the improvements in blood vessel function that occur when a smoker quits smoking.
Several double-blind clinical studies have been performed on natural vitamin E supplementation for the reduction of fibrocystic breast disease and premenstrual syndrome (PMS). These studies indicate that women given 600IU of vitamin E per day had a reduction in overall PMS symptoms, particularly fibrocystic breast disease. It appears the vitamin E normalizes hormone levels in both PMC and FBD patients.
