Health Benefits of vitamin E
Vitamin E, referring to all compounds exhibiting biological activity of alpha-tocopherols, is an antioxidant that helps protect against cell damage. It is located in cell membranes, where it protects fatty acids against oxidation and thus helps maintain cellular functions. This yields a number of universally recognized health benefits.
Studies have shown the beneficial effects of vitamin E in various health areas, such as heart, brain and cognitive function, immunity, metabolic support and eye, liver and skin health. Vitamin E also reduces the probability of pregnancy-related disorders.
Although recommendations vary from country to country, most populations have an insufficiency of vitamin E. Regular intake of vitamin E supplements can be recommended if a person’s vitamin E blood levels are not optimal, or in order to maintain a good vitamin E status.
