Cardiovascular Aging Is Associated With Vitamin E Increase.
This rat study finds high levels of Vitamin E in the walls of artieries of young rats, and the authors suggest that this might possibly be an attempt by the body to protect the arteries from damage. If this is so, then Vitamin E once again hits on the charts for an important element for preventing CVD. Of particular concern, then, is our intake of natural Vitamin E. Good sources would include nuts and seed oils; of which the typical Western diet rarely consumes in a whole, unprocessed form.
