What is Vitamin E?
Like Vitamin C, Vitamin E (also known as alpha tocopherol) has powerful antioxidant properties that help protect the cells of the body from damage by free radicals.
What are the benefits of Vitamin E?
There has been a surge of interest in Vitamin E and a huge amount of recent research shows that Vitamin E, as part of a healthy diet and lifestyle, may help maintain a healthy heart and circulatory system.
The beauty industry has noted its benefits too, and many skin (and sun) care preparations boast their Vitamin E content. Vitamin E is found in only a few foods and these are high in fat, so people following a low-fat diet may also benefit from taking a supplement.
