Vitamin E Protects the Lungs from Deadly Diseases

LifeSource Vitamins


In the year 2000 it was estimated that approximately 16 million people suffered from Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), a progressive disease that hinders breathing. In the same year, COPD was responsible for the death of 2.74 million people. This number comes from the World Health Organization (WHO) statistics for the year 2000. While it is not the leading cause of death in the United States, it is among the deadliest. It shares 4th and 5th places with HIV/AIDS as a cause of death throughout the world. According to WHO predictions, it will be ranked 3rd by 2020. A new study has thankfully linked vitamin E to the protection of the lungs, and the subsequent prevention of COPD.

In this study, women over the age of 45 were given therapeutic amounts of vitamin E through supplementation. The aim of the study was to see if the vitamin E would cause any reduction in COPD severity, or even decrease the chance of being diagnosed with COPD. The results showed that consistent use of vitamin E over a long period of time is indeed effective in preventing COPD. In this large, randomized controlled trial, people who were supplementing with vitamin E were shown to have their COPD risk cut by 10%. What is even more shocking is that the benefits were found in smokers and non-smokers alike.

Although COPD is still more common in smokers than non-smokers, more and more people are being diagnosed with COPD due to the increased amount of air pollution. Supplementing with vitamin E can help curb the onset of COPD and is vital in such a polluted environment that we live in.

Supplementing with vitamin E is safe and easy to do, and it will cost you a lot less than any hospital bills. Most people take low-grade vitamins, chock full of toxic synthetic vitamins. In addition, the soil that we use to grow our produce has become depleted of its nutrients, yielding nutrient-deficient crops. Because of this, it is difficult to get all the essential daily nutrients from eating alone. Even many supplements do not deliver enough high quality vitamin E. When supplementing with vitamin E, it's important to take natural vitamin E in the form of d-alpha-tocopherol. The synthetic version of vitamin E is di-alpha-tocopheral.

In addition to a high quality supplemental vitamin E, you should consume foods rich in vitamin E every day. Almonds, apples, broccoli, carrots, kiwi, peanuts, spinach, sunflower, vegetable and seed/nut oils such as sunflower oil, almond oil, olive oil, palm oil, and peanut oil, all contain vitamin E.

One last thing to consider when supplementing with vitamin E is the dosage. Because too much vitamin E can be harmful to your body, it's important to take notice of how much is being consumed in a day. There is some dispute as to how much vitamin E should be taken daily, but many professionals believe anywhere from 300-800 IU per day can be taken safely and without concern.
