Vitamin E and the latest science
Consumption of vitamin E has been in decline in recent years and it is now estimated that more than 90 per cent of the population in the US do not meet the dietary intake recommendations. The impact of low vitamin E intake globally is a serious public health concern and there is an urgent requirement for additional research.
