Vitamin E (46 products)

 

Vitamin E is important for proper functioning of many of the body's organs. It helps to maintain healthy skin, good vision, and correct functioning of the immune system.

 

Vitamin E is fat-soluble, with the body storing it in the liver and fat tissue when not being used. It is also an antioxidant that can help protect cells within the body by reducing free radical damage.

 

Researchers have investigated the use of a Vitamin E supplement as treatment for a variety of degenerative diseases, including:

  • hardening of the arteries
  • high blood pressure
  • heart disease
  • cancer

 

Vitamin E may help people with higher environmental or lifestyle exposure to free radicals.

 

Free radicals are increased by:

  • cigarette smoking
  • exposure to air pollution
  • high exposure to ultraviolet rays from sunlight

 

Vitamin E capsules are the easiest way of supplementing E. Vitamin E capsules for the skin can be taken internally or broken open and applied directly to the skin.

 

Many face and body creams will contain pure Vitamin E oil for healing scars and skin rejuvenation.

 

Dietary sources of Vitamin E include vegetable oils, nuts, green leafy vegetables, the fats of meat, poultry and fish and fortified cereals.

 

The naturally-occurring d-alpha-tocopherol is the most biologically active form. The best Vitamin E supplement should contain naturally sourced Vitamin E, preferably in a mixed tocopherol combination. Vitamin E dosage will range from 100iu to 1000iu.

 

People on blood thinning medicines such as warfarin and some cholesterol medicines need to be careful when supplementing Vitamin E.
