Several studies report significant reductions in hot flushes with vitamin E supplementation. A number of clinical trials, from as early as the 1940's, reported that vitamin E controlled flushing in more than 50% of the cases. It is thought that vitamin E may act as an oestrogen substitute, thereby regulating hot flushes. Its role also appears to be one of regulating the functioning of the hypothalamus, the temperature regulating gland of the body. Vitamin E also has additional beneficial effects for the cardiovascular system as well as being an antioxidant.
High vitamin E intake is associated with lower incidence of abnormal cells and cellular damage within several areas of the body. Vitamin E is also important to the health of all of the body's connective tissue primarily through its role in collagen synthesis, free radical scavenging, detoxification, immuntiy and inhibition of inflammation
Signs of vitamin E deficiency: The single biggest sign of a vitamin E deficiency is dry skin and vaginal dryness; also menstrual problems.
