Scientist discovered Vitamin E
about 80 years ago but only in the past few decades have we fully realized its potential as an effective antioxidant. Vitamin E is known to help prevent or slow
the development of many diseases including Alzheimer's disease and cancer and is also used as a topical cream to promote the healing of skin. Suggested dosage
Specifically , vitamin E may help to:
• Prevent or delay heart disease and related complications. Vitamin E's ability to protect against cardiovascular disease has
been intensively studied and was initially thought to be very promising. The vitamin appears to prevent the oxidation of LDL ("bad") cholesterol, the first step
in the development of atherosclerosis, a buildup of plaque in the arteries that inhibits normal circulation.
• Protect against prostate and other cancers. As an antioxidant, vitamin E helps to safeguard cell membranes from the damaging
effects of free radicals that can play a role in the development of cancer. The vitamin may also help fight cancer by boosting the immune system.
• Slow the progression of Alzheimer's disease and dementia. No one knows exactly what causes this progressive loss of memory
and nerve function, but one theory is that over time, free radicals gradually damage nerve fibers. Columbia University researchers reported that very high doses
of vitamin E (2,000 IU a day) slowed the progression of Alzheimer's disease. In fact it proved as effective at this as selegiline, a prescription drug commonly
used to treat Alzheimer's.
• Promote healing of burns, eczema, and other skin problems. When applied to the skin, vitamin E-containing creams or oils are
believed to promote healing, protecting cells from free-radical damage and reducing itchiness. Many people use such products to ensure optimal skin health.
Forms of Vitamin E
I take one 400 IU softgel
daily for health maintenance as well as to ensure clean and clear skin and healthy hair.
I suggested to my brother that he take Vitamin E and Fish Oil (Omega-3)
to clear up his complexion and his skin looks great now! I also suggested an multivitamin
since his eating habits likes much to be desired.
I recommend Wonder Laboratories for the
overall best quality and price when considering vitamins, herbs and supplements.
