PurposeTo evaluate the effect of oral vitamin E supplementation on all-cause mortality in apparently healthy people.MethodsA systematic review and meta-analysis was conducted on randomised controlled trials (RCTs) with ≥6 months of follow up investigating the effect of vitamin E supplementation on healthy adults in developed countries. Electronic databases (MEDLINE, EMBASE, and Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials) and reference lists of trial reports were searched for RCTs published… 
Supplemental Vitamins and Minerals for Cardiovascular Disease Prevention and Treatment
TLDR
Despite the high supplement use by the general public, there is no evidence to support the routine supplementation of oral multivitamins and multi/minerals (OVMN) for CVD prevention or treatment.
Evidence for beneficial effects of vitamin E
  • E. Niki
  • Medicine
    The Korean journal of internal medicine
  • 2015
TLDR
Vitamin E should benefit subjects experiencing oxidative stress due to free radicals when administered at the correct time and for an appropriate duration when administered on a case-by-case basis.
Higher Dietary Non-enzymatic Antioxidant Capacity Is Associated with Decreased Risk of All-Cause and Cardiovascular Disease Mortality in Japanese Adults.
TLDR
Higher dietary NEACs from ferric reducing antioxidant power (FRAP) and oxygen radical absorbance capacity (ORAC) were associated with lower risk of all-cause mortality and mortality from CVD in Japanese adults.
Clinical Advances in Immunonutrition and Atherosclerosis: A Review
TLDR
The evidence obtained from epidemiological, dietary intervention and supplementation studies in humans supporting the role of immunonutrient supplementation and its effect on anti-inflammatory response in atherosclerotic disease is focused on.
Practice patterns in NAFLD and NASH: real life differs from published guidelines
TLDR
It is concluded that NASH is underdiagnosed in gastroenterology and hepatology practices, highlighting the need to refine noninvasive diagnostic tools.
Vitamin E: Emerging aspects and new directions
TLDR
New insights are presented on the mechanisms of reduction of the cardiovascular risk, immunomodulation and antiallergic effects, neuroprotection properties in models of glutamate excitotoxicity and spino‐cerebellar damage, hepatoprotection and prevention of liver toxicity by different causes and even therapeutic applications in non‐alcoholic steatohepatitis.
Vitamin E function and requirements in relation to PUFA
TLDR
It will be prudent to assure an adequate vitamin E intake to match the increased PUFA intake, especially as vitamin E Intake is already below recommendations in many populations worldwide.
Vitamin E derivatives: a patent review (2010 – 2015)
  • M. Koufaki
  • Medicine, Biology
    Expert opinion on therapeutic patents
  • 2016
TLDR
This review includes the patent literature from 2010 – 2015 related to vitamin E derivatives and it is focused on 2-, 5- or 6-substituted chroman analogues.
Management of NAFLD: a stage-based approach
TLDR
Treatment goals in patients with NAFLD vary depending on the disease stage owing to differential risk of progression and the particularities of an individual's comorbid disease, but other therapies should be targeted to those most likely to benefit.
Polyphenols in human nutrition: from the in vitro antioxidant capacity to the beneficial effects on cardiometabolic health and related inter-individual variability – an overview and perspective
TLDR
The phenomenon of inter-individual variability in response to consumption of polyphenols is of relevance for supplementation with antioxidant (pro)vitamins and will potentially lead to personalised dietary recommendations.

Effects of vitamin E on stroke subtypes: meta-analysis of randomised controlled trials
TLDR
In this meta-analysis, vitamin E increased the risk for haemorrhagic stroke by 22% and reduced the risk of ischaemic stroke by 10% and indiscriminate widespread use of vitamin E should be cautioned against.
Efficacy of vitamin and antioxidant supplements in prevention of cardiovascular disease: systematic review and meta-analysis of randomised controlled trials
TLDR
There is no evidence to support the use of vitamin and antioxidant supplements for prevention of cardiovascular diseases.
Mortality in randomized trials of antioxidant supplements for primary and secondary prevention: systematic review and meta-analysis.
TLDR
Treatment with beta carotene, vitamin A, vitamin E, and vitamin E may increase mortality and the potential roles of vitamin C and selenium on mortality need further study.
Vitamin E and all-cause mortality: a meta-analysis.
TLDR
Based on the present meta-analysis, supplementation with vitamin E appears to have no effect on all-cause mortality at doses up to 5,500 IU/d.
Antioxidant supplements for prevention of mortality in healthy participants and patients with various diseases.
TLDR
No evidence to support antioxidant supplements to prevent mortality in healthy people or patients with various diseases is found and future randomised trials could evaluate the potential effects of vitamin C and selenium for primary and secondary prevention.
Drugs for preventing lung cancer in healthy people.
TLDR
There is currently no evidence to support recommending vitamins such as alpha-tocopherol, beta-carotene or retinol, alone or in combination, to prevent lung cancer.
Efficacy of Antioxidant Vitamins and Selenium Supplement in Prostate Cancer Prevention: A Meta-Analysis of Randomized Controlled Trials
TLDR
The findings indicate that antioxidant vitamins and selenium supplement did not reduce the incidence and mortality of prostate cancer, and these data provide no support for the use of these supplements for the prevention of prostatecancer.
Meta-Analysis: High-Dosage Vitamin E Supplementation May Increase All-Cause Mortality
TLDR
This meta-analysis of 19 randomized, controlled trials involving more than 135000 participants found that high-dosage vitamin E supplementation (400 IU/d for at least 1 year) increased all-cause mortality.
Use of antioxidant vitamins for the prevention of cardiovascular disease: meta-analysis of randomised trials
TLDR
The results, combined with the lack of mechanistic data for efficacy of vitamin E, do not support the routine use of vitamins E, and a salutary effect was seen consistently for various doses of vitamins in diverse populations.
Effect of supplemental vitamin E for the prevention and treatment of cardiovascular disease
TLDR
There is good evidence that vitamin E supplementation does not beneficially or adversely affect cardiovascular outcomes.
