How Vitamin E Can Help Arthritis and Joint Pain

By    |   Saturday, 19 September 2015 01:04 AM EDT

Arthritis is a leading cause of disability in the United States, but vitamin E can help to lessen joint pain and get patients moving again.

Studies showed that Vitamin E reduced pain more than a placebo or a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug, such as aspirin or ibuprofen, according to Prevention.

The University of Maryland Medical Center said that while that is the case, vitamin E does not reduce inflammation, only the pain.

Vitamin E used to be known as a “cure-all,” according to the Arthritis Foundation. Further research, however, has been unable to show arthritis, cancer, and heart disease as preventable with the supplement.

Prevention advises those who take vitamin E to have an intake of 100-400 IU every day, although the Arthritis Foundation suggests only 22.4 IU daily for the average person.

The average healthy individual typically does not have a problem with getting sufficient vitamin E, according to the Arthritis Foundation. Individuals with Crohn’s disease, cystic fibrosis, or liver disease, however, may need extra amounts.

The supplement is found naturally in vegetable oils, canola, almonds, sunflower seeds, peanut butter, spinach, and broccoli, the foundation reported.

Those who are interested in vitamin E should consult a doctor, especially if taking aspirin or a blood thinner, prior to beginning to take it because it may cause adverse interactions. Some people should not take more than 800 IU of vitamin E every day because cholesterol drugs such as statins and niacin may not work as effectively, according to Prevention.

The Arthritis Foundation also said high amounts of vitamin E can increase bleeding, and it advises to not mix it with nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, such as aspirin. High dosages of vitamin E should also be avoided while undergoing chemotherapy and radiation treatments.

The University of Maryland said vitamin E may interact with anti-depressants and anti-anxiety medications.

Everyday Health also indicated that supplements aren’t regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration so patients should do thorough research before making a decision.
