This Essential Vitamin For You Health And Wellbeing

Vitamin E  

By Ange Fonce

Vitamin E has earned itself a reputation from spicing up your sexing life to banning wrinkles and old age. 

And one of the most important functions of this vitamin is its antioxidant properties

Vitamin E is an essential fat soluble vitamin that includes eight naturally occurring compounds in two classes designated as tocopherols and tocotrienols.

Vitamin E is an effective chain breaking lipid soluble antioxidant in biological membranes and aids in membrane stability.

Vitamin E is the generic name for tocopherol and is available in four different forms.... it is a fat soluble antioxidant which can be obtained only as a food supplement. 

The most widely known health benefits of vitamin E are protection against toxins such as air pollution... premenstrual syndrome... eye disorders such as cataracts and neurological diseases such as Alzheimers disease and diabetes.

The health benefits of vitamin E come from its antioxidant properties.

Antioxidants remove free radicals such as the unstable compounds that damage the cell structure and immunity levels improve when vitamin E is consumed... another important benefit of vitamin E is that it reduces cholesterol and the risk of developing cancer... vitamin E thins the blood which is another significant health benefit... in other words it prevents the blood platelets from clumping and high levels of vitamin E reduce the risk of sunstroke and coronary artery disorder or heart disease.

Another widely known health benefit of vitamin E is in skin care and hair care owing to its antioxidant properties vitamin E promotes the circulation of blood to the scalp... vitamin E helps alleviate fatigue and strengthen capillary walls while nourishing the cells.

Vitamin E oil is extremely versatile... a major benefit of vitamin E oil for the skin is that it helps the healing process. 

As vitamin E is absorbed by the epidermis layer of the skin it can be used for treating sunburn or protecting you from the sun... another wonderful benefit of vitamin E oil is that it can be used to treat scars... acne and wrinkles because it speeds up cell regeneration this creates an anti ageing effect which makes the skin look younger... vitamin E oil benefits the skin by helping it retain its natural moisture content... vitamin E oil makes dull looking dry skin look healthier and fresher... you can apply a few drops of vitamin E oil to your nails and cuticles which is an effective way of treating the skin.

In the therapeutic use of this nutrient the dosage is usually increased considerably... yet the toxicity level must be kept in mind.

When More Vitamin E May Be Required... 

When your food regime is high in refined carbohydrates... fried foods and fat or you are taking a birth control pill or hormone replacement therapy then a supplement of vitamin E might be called for. 

People suffering from pre menstrual cramps... menopausal hot flushes... after a stroke or suffering from a heart disease might benefit from vitamin E. 

It might also be beneficial to relieve painful or swollen joints... if you are exposed to pollution and that is just about all of us or suffer from poor circulation or from Dupuytrens disease which is a thickening of the ligaments in the hands.

The Enemy Of Vitamin E... 

Vitamin E is lost in food processing which includes milling... cooking... freezing... long storage periods and when exposed to air.

Vitamin E should not be taken together with inorganic iron supplements as it may destroy the vitamin while organic iron such as ferrous gluconate and ferrous fumarate does not affect the vitamin.
