Allergic diseases are caused by the immune system's response to innocent antigens called ‎allergens. Recent decades have seen a significant increase in the prevalence of allergic ‎diseases worldwide, which has imposed various socio-economic effects in different ‎countries. Various factors, including genetic factors, industrialization, improved hygiene, ‎and climate change contribute to the development of allergic diseases in many parts of ‎the world. Moreover, changes in lifestyle and diet habits play pivotal roles in the ‎prevalence of allergic diseases. Dietary changes caused by decreased intake of ‎antioxidants such as vitamin E lead to the generation of oxidative stress, which is central to ‎the development of allergic diseases. It has been reported in many articles that oxidative ‎stress diverts immune responses to the cells associated with the pathogenesis of allergic ‎diseases. The aim of this short review was to summarize current knowledge about the ‎anti-allergic properties of vitamin E.‎
