Vitamin E levels linked to level of depression

Australian researchers have found that sufferers of major depression tend to have lower levels of vitamin E but they arenít sure whether this is due to poor diet or depression itself. There is an inverse relationship between vitamin E levels and depression level. The researchers believe that the reduced levels of vitamin E in the blood may be a marker of increased physiological stress as experienced in depression. The benefits of nutritional supplements of the vitamin on depression are yet to be determined.
