As an antioxidant, vitamin E has always been regarded as an important substance in the human body. It can alleviate various problems caused by aging. However, Japanese scientists recently discovered through experiments on mice that it can reduce bone tissue in animals and reduce bone tissue density.
A recent study by Japanese scientists found that vitamin E is associated with osteoporosis in animals, which may change perceptions of certain nutrients.
The researchers fed the mice for 8 weeks at a much higher rate than the normal vitamin E intake of the mice, and found that the bone density of the experimental mice was significantly reduced. The study was published in the journal Nature Medicine.
The research team led by ShuTakeda of Keio University in Japan said: “Vitamin E promotes the division of bone-degrading cells in the body. Under normal circumstances, bone-producing cells and bone-promoting cells cooperate to ensure the health of human bones. “”
Osteoporosis is a disease that causes thinning of bone tissue and a decrease in bone density. This disease is more common in the elderly and women because they are often more prone to fractures.
Vitamin E is found in a variety of foods such as vegetable oils, nuts and leafy vegetables. It is an important antioxidant that enhances human health and alleviates various diseases caused by aging.
