Metabolic syndrome (MS) is a worldwide medical problem characterized by a cluster of cardiovascular risk factors and metabolic modifications involving peripheral insulin resistance. Nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) represents the liver expression of this pathological condition. Both MS and NASH are characterized by proinflammatory status and increased oxidative stress. According this, we aimed to review the literature for considering a possible role for vitamins as therapeutical support in MS and NASH.
