Vitamin E and Chronic Inflammation
Posted Wednesday, December 10, 2008

Up to half of everyone's body mass is made up of skeletal muscle, and chronic inflammation of these muscles is a seriously debilitating affliction for many people. According to new research from scientists from the University of Illinois, Vitamin E may be able to play an important part in reducing inflammation-related stress.

The target of this study was to determine if vitamin E could help prevent protein oxidation, a process that is related to reduced cardiac and skeletal muscle strength. It was found that the solution did in fact reduce the amount of lipopolysaccharide (LSP) induced oxidation in animal research, and it worked to bolster muscle strength as well. These new findings are to be published in the December issue of Experimental Physiology, and you can check out further detail about the study from Science Daily press release.
