  • Vitamin E possesses very strong antioxidant activities. It works by donating electrons to unstable free radicals, the body’s by-products of ageing. Chronic diseases related to old age or also known as degenerative diseases, can be free radical induced. Common degenerative diseases include Alzheimer’s diseases, arthritis, macular degeneration, cataracts, and prostate enlargement.
  • Vitamin E can protect against peroxidation of poly unsaturated fatty acids and cholesterol. Lipid peroxidation leads to damaged and obstructed blood vessels, increasing the risk for atherosclerosis and many other cardiovascular diseases.
  • In the blood, Vitamin E is involved in the formation of red blood cells and the synthesis of hemoglobin. Deficiency of hemoglobin can lead to anemia, a disease characterized by pallor, easy fatigability, weakness, lightheadedness, and shortness of breath.
  • Natural Vitamin E is a very powerful skin vitamin. It nourishes the skin and helps protect it against the damaging UV radiation from the sun. Over exposure to the sun’s UV radiation is a major cause of sun burn and skin cancer. For this reason, Vitamin E lotion and creams are widely used by people who regularly go to the beach.
