Abstract Vitamin E (α-tocopherol) is recognised as a key essential lipophilic antioxidant in humans protecting lipoproteins, PUFA, cellular and intra-cellular membranes from damage. The aim of this review was to evaluate the relevant published data about vitamin E requirements in relation to dietary PUFA intake. Evidence in animals and humans indicates a minimal basal requirement of 4–5 mg/d of RRR-α-tocopherol when the diet is very low in PUFA. The vitamin E requirement will increase with an… 
The Challenge of Defining Daily Intake Recommendations: Vitamin E and Polyunsaturated Fatty Acids
TLDR
The evidence on the interaction of vitamin E and the amount needed to protect PUFA from being oxidized and the proposed health benefits of omega-3 PUFA and the recommendations to increase the long-chain PUFA are revisited.
Vitamin E (α- and γ-tocopherol) - determinants and associated outcomes
TLDR
It is observed that nearly 60% of the Northern German population had adequate plasma α-tocopherol levels, and that lipid traits and the intake of vitamin E supplementation were statistically significantly associated with circulating vitamin E levels, however, neither a priori nor a posteriori derived dietary patterns displayed an association with circulating α- and γ-tocaperol levels.
Interaction Between Vitamin E and Polyunsaturated Fatty Acids
TLDR
The efficiency of uptake, transport, and metabolism of vitamin E and PUFA, their interaction, and their consequent relative levels in cells and tissues are important determinants for both physiological and pathophysiological cellular functions and therefore influence the risk for a number of diseases.
Vitamin E: Recommended Intake
TLDR
Low dietary consumption of vitamin E, coupled with compelling evidence that increased intake ofitamin E above current recommendations for the general population may benefit older individuals, is recommended.

Contribution of Dietary PUFAs and Micronutrients
TLDR
The anti-allergic properties of PUFAs, flavonoids and fat-soluble vitamins are explored in order to create an overview and, more importantly, suggest a strategy to target food allergies using these components and combinations thereof.

Colostrum supplementation with n-3 fatty acids and α-tocopherol alters plasma polyunsaturated fatty acid profile and decreases an indicator of oxidative stress in newborn calves
TLDR
It is concluded that a colostrum supplement of n-3 FA and α-tocopherol is safe to administer to newborn calves, reduces oxidant status in the first week of life, and may improve health and performance.

TLDR
A calculation of the vitamin E requirement, using recent nutritional intake data, shows that a reduction in total fat intake with a concomitant increase in PUFA consumption, including EPA and DHA, will result in an increased amount of vitamin E required.
Lipid peroxidation during n−3 fatty acid and vitamin E supplementation in humans
TLDR
It is demonstrated that supplementing the diet with n−3 fatty acids resulted in an increase in lipid peroxidation, as measured by plasma MDA release and lipid peroxide products, which was not suppressed by vitamin E supplementation.

TLDR
A workshop was organized to propose a concept for developing markers of status, functionality, and health in the field of nutritional research, in order to define desirable vitamin E requirements in healthy individuals.

TLDR
This review discusses health aspects where inadequate vitamin E status is detrimental and additional vitamin E has reversed the symptoms and provides suggestions for avenues for research.

TLDR
Gamma-Tocopherol was more effective as an in vivo antioxidant than has been reported for its inhibition of vitamin E-deficiency syndromes and correlated with the integrated amount of pentane produced over the 7-week experiment.
