Which Vitamin can protect you from the free radicals?

Click here to explore our formulas with Vitamin E


Vitamin E is a fat-soluble vitamin that serves as an antioxidant in the body. It exists in several forms, with the most biologically active form being alpha-tocopherol. Vitamin E is known for its role in protecting cells from damage caused by free radicals. Free radicals are unstable molecules that can damage cells and contribute to aging and various chronic diseases.


Key functions of vitamin E include:
  1. Antioxidant Protection: Vitamin E protects cell membranes from oxidative damage by neutralizing free radicals. This antioxidant activity helps maintain the integrity of cell membranes and protects the body's cells from oxidative stress.
  2. Immune System Support: Vitamin E is involved in supporting the immune system. It enhances the activity of certain immune cells and helps in the defense against infections.
  3. Skin Health: Vitamin E is often associated with skin health. It is believed to contribute to skin hydration and may have a role in protecting the skin from UV radiation.
  4. Cardiovascular Health: Some studies suggest that vitamin E may have a protective effect on the cardiovascular system by preventing the oxidation of LDL cholesterol, a process that is linked to the development of atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries).
  5. Anti-Inflammatory Effects: Vitamin E may have anti-inflammatory properties, and it is being studied for its potential role in reducing inflammation in various conditions.
Sources of vitamin E include nuts, seeds, vegetable oils (such as wheat germ oil and sunflower oil), green leafy vegetables, and fortified foods. While vitamin E is important for health, excessive supplementation can have adverse effects, and it's generally recommended to obtain nutrients through a balanced diet.

As with any supplement, it's advisable to consult with a healthcare professional before taking vitamin E supplements, especially if you have existing health conditions or are taking medications.
