Vitbox - Vitamin E


Vitamin E is a group of several fat soluble compounds which the human body cannot make itself. It aids the body with:

  • Diseases: Studies have shown people who consume more vitamin E had lower incidence of serious diseases, such as cancer, dementia and cardiovascular diseases.
  • Dryness & wrinkles: Vitamin E helps to protect cell membranes from damage from free radicals. Free radicals also damage collagen, causing dryness and wrinkles, which vitamin E can help to fight.
  • Immune system: Vitamin E aids in normal function of the immune system, and deficiencies increase the chances of infectious diseases.

A review of global studies suggested that actual vitamin E intake is lower than the daily suggested intake. The review states that 79% of the studied populations had vitamin E levels lower than a threshold suggested to have beneficial effects.
