Taking Vitamin E Can Be Good for Your Heart Health

New research shows that taking vitamin E everyday can give your heart a boost which is good for people who have stopped smoking. In a recently conducted study, experts found out that improvement in blood vessel function can reduce the future risk for cardiovascular disease by at least 19%.

Richard Bruno, associate professor of human nutrition at The Ohio State University said, “The underlying rationale is that we know it takes many years before the risk for cardiovascular disease of a former smoker matches that of a nonsmoker. We hope to develop a therapy to combine with smoking cessation that could accelerate the restoration of vascular function and reduce cardiovascular risk.”

According to Bruno, participants who were given vitamin E supplements showed greater improvements in vascular function as compared to those who were only given a placebo. In addition, participants who took the supplements were found to have lower levels of two inflammation-related in their blood.
