NutraKey Vitamin E
Vitamin E is stored in the adrenal and pituitary glands, red blood cells and platelets, testes, and ovaries. Vitamin E is a major antioxidant & the primary defense against lipid peroxidation (cell damage). Excessive free radical damage leads to a plethora of problems, including premature aging, artery damage, etc. It is important to maintain antioxidant levels to ensure your body can neutralize damaging free radicals. Vitamin E is particularly important in protecting the body's cells from free radical/oxidative damage. These protective benefits are achievable with supplemental intakes higher than what is normally consumed in the average diet.
Benefits Of Using Vitamin E:
- Powerful Essential Antioxidant
- Promotes Healthy hair & skin
- Plays a Role in Metabolic Function & Protein Metabolism
- Protects the body from Free Radical Damage
- Essential to Cardiovascular Health
- Protects Cell Membranes
Vitamin E plays an important role in protecting the body tissues from damaging reactions caused by free-radicals, which arise from many normal metabolic functions. Free-radicals are molecules that are energized at the loss of an electron. They become energetic and unstable and will react with any other molecule to acquire another electron. Free-radicals are responsible for many types of cancer, DNA damage, and blood clots. Vitamin E is a strong antioxidant and it helps prolong the life of red blood cells, it plays an essential role in cellular respiration. It protects biological membranes such as those found in the nerves, muscles, and cardiovascular system.
It helps the body effectively use and store vitamin A and protects B-complex and vitamin C from oxidation reactions Natural versus Synthetic Vitamin E Alpha-tocopherol is the scientific name for the form of vitamin E that our bodies use. There are a variety of vitamin E types such as beta, gamma, and delta tocopherols (aka" mixed" tocopherols) which exist in nature along with alpha-tocopherol. Vitamin E comes in either a D or L form. The form that exists in our food and the form that our bodies need is the D form: D-alpha tocopherol. The L form does not work in our bodies.
