Dietary Reference Intakes for Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Selenium, and Carotenoids

This volume is the newest release in the authoritative series issued by the National Academy of Sciences and Health Canada on dietary reference intakes (DRIs), the quantitative estimates of nutrient intakes to be used for planning and assessing diets for healthy people.

This book discusses in detail the effects of vitamin C, vitamin E, selenium, and beta-carotene and other caroteniods on human physiology and health. The expert panel also explores the evidence relating these substances -- loosely termed dietary antioxidants -- to the reduction of risk of chronic disease, including a research agenda for using biomarkers to confirm the relationship between antioxidant intake and disease.

The book explains how DRIs -- which include Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA), Adequate Intake, and other measures -- are derived for men and women throughout their life stages. This volume reflects several important new insights: a revised approach to estimating vitamin E requirements and a complete review of the literature to allow a determination of RDAs and upper levels (or maximum intakes) for vitamin C, vitamin E, selenium, and beta-carotene and other carotenoids. This book will be important to professionals in nutrition research and education.
