Is Vitamin E Good For Diabetics?

Vitamin E is a fat-soluble antioxidant that protects cell membranes from damage caused by free radicals. But, is Vitamin E good for diabetics? Let’s find out.

Delaying the onset of Type-2 diabetes: According to a study, Vitamin E improves oxidative stress, which plays a key role in the development of diabetes. Including Vitamin E in one’s diet thus helps in delaying the onset of diabetes in individuals at risk.

Reducing the risk of cardiovascular events in Diabetics: Diabetes is a risk factor for heart disease.  The American Heart Association recommends the consumption of foods that are rich in antioxidant vitamins for heart health. Vitamin E is the most prevalent naturally occurring antioxidant, thus making it a great food for heart health.

Prevents clogging of arteries: Diabetics are known to be prone to atherosclerosis or hardening of arteries. Consumption of Vitamin E prevents the oxidation of LDL cholesterol, which is the basis for a buildup of cholesterol in arteries. This way, Vitamin E prevents the clogging of arteries.

Slowing down the development of complications: Diabetics are always at a higher risk of developing cataracts. According to the American Optometric Association, vitamin E reduces cataract formation. Type 2 diabetes is also a risk factor for Alzheimer’s disease. In a study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, it was shown that vitamin E can slow down the progression of Alzheimer’s.
