Researchers of the Osaka Shoin Women’s University in Japan studied the relationship between an noncommunicable disease (e.g. hypertension) and the dietary intake of vitamin E (tocopherol), a potent anti-oxidative vitamin. They analysed studies with data from 1,405 males and 2,102 females over 40 (mean ages: 63.5 and 62.4). They found that higher vitamin E intake was significantly associated with lower prevalence of hypertension.
