Only 1/5th of Global Population Meet “Ideal” Vitamin E Levels

Vitamin EA new review has shown that only about one fifth of the population (21%) worldwide is receiving the recommended intake of Vitamin E which increases the risk for conditions affecting the cardiovascular system, cognitive functions and the immune system.

Published literature describing serum Vitamin E concentrations and Vitamin E intake levels between the years 2000 and 2012 was studied.  A total of 178 articles consisting of 132 single studies were included in this review.  Researchers used an RDA of 15 mg/day and an estimated average requirement (EAR) of 12 mg/day of Vitamin E and applied this standard to all populations with a minimum of 14 years of age.  It was found that 82% and 61% of mean and median data points were below the RDA and EAR respectively.

There has been an increased interest in Vitamin E research as of late.  It is believed, that a change in dietary food consumption in developing countries worldwide is a contributing factor to the reduction in Vitamin E status.

Further research is warranted.
