Drink Water but Dehydrated?

From eNewsletter 3/18/2024

DID YOU KNOW that optimal vitamin E intake has now been linked to reduced risk of Parkinson's disease?

According to a first-of-its-kind study from Frontiers in Nutrition, optimal vitamin E from food and/or mixed tocopherol supplement can lower the levels of oxygen-derived free radicals in brain tissue and regulate glutamate neurotoxicity to protect the brain, thus reducing risk of Parkinson's.

Vitamin E is unique among antioxidants as it is the only one that prevents lipid oxidation, a form of inflammation. This is why you may have noticed fat and oil food manufacturers add small amounts of tocopherol (vitamin E).

Legislative Note For Illinoisans Only:
