Evion Capsule 600mg 10×10’s
Evion Capsule 600mg 10×10’s treat Vitamin E deficiency which is characterized by eye disorders, anaemia, muscle weakness, and poor nerve functions. As a nutritional supplement after surgery, in malnourished individuals, or when the body’s requirement is increased.
Vitamin E is fat-soluble, so dietary supplement products are usually in the form of the vitamin, esterified with acetic acid to generate tocopheryl acetate, and dissolved in vegetable oil in a soft gel capsule. For alpha-tocopherol, amounts range from 100 to 1000 IU per serving. Smaller amounts are incorporated into multivitamin/mineral tablets. Gamma-tocopherol and tocotrienol supplements are also available from dietary supplement companies. The latter are extracts from palm or annatto oils. If used in a liquid form, the dose should be measured using a measuring device so that the correct dose is given.
In the United States, vitamin E supplement use by female health professionals was 16.1% in 1986, 46.2% in 1998, and 44.3% in 2002, but decreased to 19.8% in 2006. Similarly, for male health professionals, rates for the same years were 18.9%, 52.0%, 49.4%, and 24.5%.
The authors theorized that declining use in these populations may have been due to publications of studies that showed either no benefits or negative consequences from vitamin E supplements. Within the US military services, vitamin prescriptions were written for active, reserve, and retired military, and their dependents, were tracked over years 2007–2011. Vitamin E prescriptions decreased by 53% while vitamin C remained constant and vitamin D increased by 454%.
