Vitamin E is an antioxidant that helps to protect the cells from damage. It is an essential nutrient that occurs naturally in many foods, however, most will supplement with a multivitamin as it is often removed with over processing of foods. It is fat soluble, so the body stores it and uses it when it is needed.
As an antioxidant, it helps to cleanse away free radicals which are produced as a by-product of fuel converting to energy in the cells. Free radicals can also come from tobacco smoke, direct sunlight, air pollution and other external sources.
If you have a client base focusing around beauty, vitamin E is a natural way to support healthy skin, in both appearance and health. In addition, vitamin E can support the healing of acne, psoriasis and have an anti-ageing effect.
Natural vitamin E is often listed as d-alpha-tocopherol on food labels, however, it can also be produced synthetically. The synthetic form of vitamin E is often referred to as dl-alpha-tocopherol on food labels.
As we age, the response of our immune system starts to decline. It has been suggested that vitamin E can help slow down this process during ageing, improving overall immunity within the elderly.
