FAQ - Is vitamin E good for your heart?

Vitamin E is taken by many people; however, recent clinical trials have suggested that it is not effective in reducing the risk of heart disease, at least in patients who’ve already had one heart attack. There have now been two clinical trials involving more than 20,000 patients with placebo or 400 units of vitamin E a day. There was no benefit of vitamin E in either trial. For that reason, I do not normally recommend vitamin E.
