• deficient
  • Those with metabolic syndrome , approximately one of three people in the United States, could be chronically deficient in vitamin E. Its findings suggest that while vitamin E appears to be readily available in the bloodstream of those with metabolic syndrome, it's not finding its way to the tissues where it's needed, resulting in a hidden deficiency.

  • 2. Weanling rats were fed vitamin E-sufficient or -deficient diets for 21 weeks. (clinsci.org)
  • 3. Steady-state isotopic flux experiments in unstimulated tissues demonstrated net Na + and Cl − secretion in vitamin E-deficient jejuna but net Na + and Cl − absorption in vitamin E-sufficient jejuna. (clinsci.org)
  • 5. Cyclic nucleotide and maximal non-neuronal acetylcholine-mediated electrogenic secretion were increased in vitamin E-deficient jejuna. (clinsci.org)
  • 6. Exogenous 5-hydroxytryptamine (serotonin) induced a smaller increment in electrogenic secretion in vitamin E-deficient jejuna. (clinsci.org)
  • 7. Vitamin E-deficient jejuna were less responsive to exogenous noradrenaline, resulting in a smaller α 2 -adrenergic-mediated decrease in intestinal short-circuit current. (clinsci.org)
  • 8. Fasting for 72 h produced a greater increment in intestinal short-circuit current in vitamin E-deficient jejuna. (clinsci.org)
  • complex
  • The term vitamin E encompasses a group of eight compounds, called tocopherols and tocotrienols, with various subsets of each, that comprise the vitamin complex as it is found in nature. (drweil.com)
  • Dr. Weil recommends supplementing with vitamin E that provides a minimum daily dose of 80 mg of the whole complex, including the four mixed tocopherols as well as the four mixed tocotrienols. (drweil.com)
  • form
  • The product of the VKORC1 gene encodes a subunit of the enzyme that is responsible for reducing vitamin K 2,3-epoxide to the activated form, a reduction reaction. (wikipedia.org)
  • reduce
  • If you are taking statins, do not exceed 400 IU of vitamin E because it can dramatically reduce the benefits of some cholesterol drugs. (drweil.com)
