What is Vitamin E?
Vitamin E is a fat-soluble vitamin, which is a powerful antioxidant. Antioxidants are substances that help remove potentially-harmful substances called “free radicals” from our body. For this and other functions, we need ample vitamin E for our body to function normally.
6 top functions of Vitamin E
1. Balances cholesterol levels: Vitamin E can fight free radical damage, which leads to cholesterol oxidation. It also slows down the hardening or thickening of arteries.
2. Repairs damaged skin: Vitamin E increases the moisture and flexibility of your skin. By keeping your skin healthy, it makes you look younger and feel better. It also helps treat sun burn.
3. Keeps hair shiny and healthy: Being a powerful antioxidant, it reduces damage to the hair. Vitamin E rich oils retain moisture in the scalp and prevent dryness.
4. Improves vision: When taken with protein, vitamin C, beta carotene and zinc, vitamin E is effective in reducing the risk of age-related macular degeneration leading to loss of vision. So, top-up your vitamin E reserves regularly from good food sources.
5. Improve cell health: Vitamin E can boost your energy and reduce muscle sourness. By promoting blood circulation, it further reduces fatigue and nourishes your cells.
6. Ensures proper growth and development of the baby during pregnancy: It helps in fighting inflammation and helps in proper development and growth of the child by building healthy cells. The earlier the sources of vitamin E are consumed the better it is for the developing foetus. Sometimes pregnant women are supplemented with vitamin E capsules.
