Default Vitamin E May Help Fatty Liver Disease

Vitamin E Helps Sick Livers (from energytimes.com)

More and more Americans are developing nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), liver inflammation and damage caused by excess fat deposits. There are no currently approved treatments for this condition, also known as fatty liver disease. But there is good news: Vitamin E may help, according to a study in the May 6 issue of New England Journal of Medicine.

Researchers at the Saint Louis University Liver Center gave either 800 IU of natural vitamin E or a placebo to 247 people with NASH. After 24 months 43% of those in the vitamin E group showed significant improvement, compared with 19% in the placebo group.
