The Benefits of Vitamin E

Antioxidant - Vitamin E is important as a protective measure against free radicals by scavenging free radicals before they attack cells and by concentrating in the cell membranes to protect against free radical attack.
Blood circulation - has been shown to be beneficial in cases where there is an inadequate supply of blood to the calf muscles which causes debilitating pain.
Blood clots - may prevent and dissolve blood clots.
Endurance - has been shown to alleviate fatigue and supply oxygen to the body to give a greater endurance.
Healing - it can prevent thick scar formation and accelerate the healing of burns.
Blood pressure - vitamin E has been shown to reduce blood pressure.
Heart disease - recent studies have shown that vitamin E supplementation significantly lowers the risk of heart disease for example the Cambridge Heart Antioxidant Study found evidence to support the use of alpha-tocopherol in preventing non fatal myocardial infarction (heart attacks) in patients with angina and coronary atherosclerosis.
Vitamin E is the most powerful antioxidant vitamin but in addition to this it is also involved in:
Cell respiration - maximises the availability of oxygen to organs and muscles.
Reproduction - essential for a healthy reproductive system.

Skin - helps with condition and regeneration.
