DSM hosted a satellite symposium alongside the 12th European Nutrition Conference FENS last week, to discuss the role of micronutrients, including vitamin E and omega-3s, in a targeted approach to address the risk factors in metabolic syndrome. The condition has high prevalence around the globe and encompasses numerous health risks, such as obesity, high blood pressure, and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. A recent study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition for instance, examined vitamin E absorption in adults with metabolic syndrome and demonstrated that they absorbed and transported vitamin E in the circulation only very poorly.
