Alpha-tocopherol is the only form known to meet human requirements. For people over the age of 14, the recommended daily allowance (RDA) of vitamin E is 15 mg. According to a recent review presented at the World Congress of Public Health Nutrition, more than 90 percent of Americans fail to reach the recommended daily allowance (RDA) of vitamin E.

What could be the reason? The study reveals that an estimated 35% of Americans have a cluster of health problems that add up to metabolic syndrome.

Besides allergy-induced asthma, less common types also exist.

For allergy-induced asthma, common triggers are food additives, fog, dust, smoke, and pollen. 3 But more and more, asthma begins in adults due to hormonal changes, viral infections, and moisture.1, 4 Symptoms Diagnosis Therapy.
