Vitamin E and Anxiety

Posted by Chantel M. Contributed by US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health

In the study of `Dietary Vitamin E Deficiency Increases Anxiety-Like Behavior in Juvenile and Adult Rats`by Terada Y, Okura Y, Kikusui T, Takenaka A., posted in US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health, researchers found that plasma corticosterone concentrations were higher in the vitamin E-deficient rats in response to the stress of a behavioral test. Based on these results, we conclude that dietary vitamin-E deficiency induces anxiety in adult rats as well as juvenile rats. This might be due to an elevated plasma corticosterone concentration.
