Vitamin E is one of the most underrated victims in keeping us healthy. There are certain compounds within this vitamin that help improve many aspects of our health, both through oral and topical use.
A fat-soluble vitamin, it’s found in many of the foods we consume, including oils, cereals, meats, fruits and vegetables, and in various supplements. The compounds that make it so effective are tocotrienols and tocopherols, which also determine the type of vitamin E you’re getting.
It’s important to note that not all forms of this vitamin are the same, and typically, the average American diet is deficient in tocotrienols, which is why we make sure to offer it through our herbal supplements.
Let’s look at some of the benefits of vitamin E and how it may help you:
1. Antioxidants that fight free radicals
As you might have noticed, we’re fans of antioxidants in general, and why wouldn’t we be? These compounds, whether they’re individual vitamins, minerals, or sourced from various herbs, help fight free radicals in the body.
Because vitamin E is fat-soluble, your body stores it, it’s incredible how stores of vitamin E can be used when needed, and that you can take a safe amount through whichever source you prefer.
These free radicals enter our bodies through environmental exposure, many of the foods we eat, and other damaging habits such as smoking and drinking—and vitamin E is a great way to combat their adverse effects.
2. Healthier longer cell life
Among the many effects of free radicals, cell damage and aging are a few. Free radicals though naturally occurring, can be quite damaging. They break down collagen, possibly lead to abnormal cell division and mutation, and many other potentially dangerous effects that vitamin E may have the potential to stop. Simply put, vitamin E leaves you healthy at the most basic cellular level.
3. Excellent for skin and hair
Apart from helping improve your health, it also works to give you gorgeous hair and skin. Used as a supplement and in your daily life, this magic vitamin may work wonders on your hair because it fights sun damage and environmental damage too. You can expect to see a glow and healthy look, stronger, shinier hair, and beauty from the inside out.
Are you getting enough Vitamin E in your diet?
As we mentioned, the average American diet lacks variation in the type of vitamin E it offers. We mostly have access to tocopherols, which, while incredibly healthy in their own way, are not sufficient on their own.
You need a healthy dose of tocotrienols for the many benefits they provide you, acting as antioxidants, anti-inflammatories, and much more.
Your health is the most valuable asset you possess. Without it, nothing else matters. Unfortunately, most diets are not rich in essential nutrients and vitamins. Alongside trying to eat healthily, focus on alternative sources of nutrition, including supplements that you can order online through our online store.
