According to an article from Reuters, Vitamin E reduces the risk of a heart attack by 75%. That information is according to Bristish researchers from Cambridge University.

A team of Cambridge University scientists has made a study in 2,000 patients with heart problems. Professor Morris Brown said that they have discovered that Vitamin E is beneficially good. He said, too that he recommends it to patients with angina and those who are at risk of heart disease.

Along with their regular medication, one half of the 2,000 patients in the 18-month trial have been given Vitamin E while the other half have taken placebo tablets. The number of heart attacks in the Vitamin E group has only been quarter of that in the placebo group. They have concluded that Vitamin E cuts heart attacks by 75 percent.

Professor Brown has said that the result is more exciting than aspirin. The average benefit from taking aspirin is in the order of a 25 to 30 percent reduction, he has said as well.

The article also mentions that Vitamin E helps prevent cholesterol build up so it protects the heart naturally.
