The health benefits of Vitamin E in a few words…
Some of the health benefits of Vitamin E:
“It is… A cancer fighting antioxidant, an exercise supplement helping build and maintain cells, an age slowing skin hydrating – immunity boosting vitamin that reduces cholesterol as well as being a go-to nutrient used in skin lotions and shampoos”
And in a few more words…
Many people are most familiar with vitamin E as a nutrient used in lotions, shampoos and other skin and hair care products. While vitamin E does have a number of benefits when used externally, vitamin E is a required nutrient that the body needs internally to support a variety of functions. Learning how the body uses vitamin E can help a person to understand the importance of consuming this nutrient in food or as a supplement.
Vitamin E helps the body to build and maintain cells. By doing so, the nutrient helps to protect the body from the development of cancer which begins as a result of cell damage. Vitamin E is also an antioxidant. Antioxidants help fight free radicals which can cause cell damage which can lead to cancer. Free radicals are commonly encountered in the body from a variety of sources including as a natural result of the body breaking down food and air pollution. The antioxidant properties of vitamin E are particularly useful as vitamin E is fat soluble and able to work in areas of the body that other antioxidants cannot.
Vitamin E is an important nutrient that helps athletes and others who regularly exercise to perform at a high level. Exercise boosts the body’s metabolism which causes more free radicals to be present in the body. This means that the body needs more vitamin E to deal with the additional free radicals. Vitamin E also reduces muscle pains that can occur during or after strenuous exercise. The ability of vitamin E to assist in the development and protection of cells is also important for preventing and reducing exercise related injuries.
While vitamin E cannot actually slow down time, it can reduce the impact of time on the body. It does this in a number of ways including reducing wrinkles by keeping skin healthy, reducing cardiovascular problems by protecting the heart and circulatory system from damage and promoting muscle health by keeping a person’s blood supply working properly to distribute oxygen and nutrients to all areas of the body.
The body needs a wide mix of nutrients for a number of reasons. Vitamin E not only helps to protect the body’s cells from damage, it also helps to protect other nutrients from damage caused by free radicals. For example, vitamin A is particularly prone to free radical damage, meaning the body cannot efficiently utilize vitamin A without vitamin E. By protecting other nutrients from damage by free radicals, vitamin E helps the body to store and process the nutrients needed for a variety of bodily functions.
Vitamin E is naturally present in a number of foods, especially nuts, sunflower seeds and avocado. However, it is difficult for a person to eat enough of these foods to meet the recommended daily amount of vitamin E. This is why many people choose to take a vitamin supplement in order to get the proper amount of vitamin E to support a healthy lifestyle.
