Learn about the discovery of Vitamin E

Vitamin E was discovered in 1922 at the University of California in Berkeley. Dr. Herbert M. Evans, a research physician, and his assistant, Katherine S. Bishop "discovered" vitamin E when they were feeding rats a special semipurified diet. The rats would grow very well, but for all female pregnancies, the pups would die in the womb. When the rat’s diet was supplemented with lettuce, then later with wheat germ, healthy pups were born. Doctors Evans and Bishop found that the Factor X was in the lipid extract of the lettuce—so they concluded that the mysterious substance must be fat soluble.

Even before Evans decided to call this vitamin E in 1925, in 1924 Dr. Bennett Sure at the University of Arkansas observed independently that a missing factor in the diet was making rats sterile. He proposed the name vitamin E one year earlier than Evans. The excitement from finding vitamin E died away quickly and was replaced by the slow process of finding a function this is because scientists didn’t know if vitamin E was a single compound or, if so, its structure. It after 1936 that the correct chemical formula for alpha-tocopherol, Vitamin E was formulated. Find out why does Vitamin E benefits us here.

Vitamin E has been shown to help with aging, Alzheimer’s Disease, certain cancer, AIDS, male fertility, cataracts, diabetes, asthma and allergies, wound healing and menopause.

Vitamin E Hong Kong: What is Vitamin E?

Vitamin E is a fat-soluble nutrient found in many foods like pumpkin, almond, avocado, papaya, spinach and broccoli. Vitamin E is also an important antioxidant that helps our body to combat free radicals.

Vitamin E Hong Kong: Why do you need vitamin E?

Free radicals compounds are formed when our bodies convert the food we eat into energy. The compound breakdown of cells during the process may cause an array of unpaired molecules to be present in the body, putting the body to be more susceptible to free radical attacks.

Unfortunately, oxygen (present on our body) is also very susceptible to free radical formation and with aerobic organisms, free radicals can become lethal. Oxygen free radicals are implicated in the overall aging process and are responsible for photo-aging, cancer and inflammation in the skin. So, we have to attain sufficient antioxidants (in this case Vitamin E) for our body to combat these portentous free radicals.

According to Vaughn’s Summaries, consuming Vitamin E supplements might not be necessary because you can get them through our daily food intake. However, many of us may neglect a balanced diet as we immerse ourselves in work and stress. So, it is advisable to get Vitamin E supplements to ensure that a sufficient level of Vitamin E is present in your bloodstream.

Don’t pair your Vitamin E supplement with these foods

Vitamin E is needed in a moderate amount varies according to age, physical health and body psyche. (Do consult your doctor and find out whether you need Vitamin E supplements)

Studies have found out a list of bad food pairings for Vitamin E supplements.

  • Avoid grapefruit and its juice when consuming Vitamin E. Scientists are yet to discover the effects of grapefruit juice and Vitamin E combination in the liver.
  • Avoid alcohol when taking Vitamin E as both may increase the risk of bleeding.
  • Avoid Vitamin E also when you are taking other mineral oil supplements, as it may cause an overdose which may lead to hemorrhage and interrupt blood coagulation.

As mentioned earlier, do always consult your doctor before adding Vitamin E supplement into your daily diet. It is always recommended to take supplements when you cannot afford to obtain theses vitamins or minerals from your daily diet (natural food resources). If you are looking for other vitamins like Vitamin C, Vitamin B12, Vitamin D or other Multivitamins, remember that you can get them all at iprice Hong Kong.
