    Effect of vitamin E-deficiency on regeneration of the sciatic nerve.


    Cecchini T, Cuppini R, Ciaroni S, Del Grande P.


    Istituto di Scienze Morfologiche, Universita di Urbino, Italy.


    The regeneration of the sciatic nerve fibres was studied in both normal
    and
    vitamin E-deficient rats at 30 and 60 days after crush. The vitamin E
    is
    involved in one of the most important mechanisms of protection against
    peroxidation of plasma membrane lipids; the plasma membrane plays
    certainly a
    role in nerve regeneration. Both the diameter and the total number of
    myelinated nerve fibres was calculated at different times. The number
    of
    myelinated fibres in the undenervated deficient animals was lower than
    that
    found in the undenervated normals animals. Following the nerve crush,
    in normal
    animals after two months the number of myelinated fibres exceeded the
    number
    found in undenervated normal animals, whereas in the deficient rat
    nerves it
    was significantly lower than in the corresponding controls and moreover
    it did
    not even reach the number found in the nerves of undenervated deficient
    rats.
    Finally, the caliber distribution of myelinated fibres in undenervated
    and
    denervated deficient rats shows a relative percent increase in the
    number of
    greatest axons and a decrease in smaller axons. This result confirm the
    vitamin
    E to be an important factor of the normal process of nerve
    regeneration.

  2. Iron destroys vitamin E causing what is generally known as .. "iron
    deficiency the most prevalent deficiency in the world .. " .. when in
    fact there is PLENTY of iron .. but no vitamin E ..

    Many medicinal drugs destroy vitamin E and cause anemia.
