The top 6 benefits of Vitamin E
- Fights free radicals. Free radicals break down healthy cells in our bodies, which can lead to different types of diseases. Certain molecules of vitamin E which have powerful antioxidants fight inflammation in the body and reduce free radical damage. This can slow, even stop some conditions from forming.
- Helps thicken hair. Vitamin E oil helps keep the natural moisture in your skin (including scalp) and it promotes circulation to your scalp which promotes healthy hair growth. Try adding a few drops to your hair to brighten it up, or if its feeling on the dry side.
- Repairs damaged skin. Vitamin E strengthens the capillary walls which improves moisture and elasticity in the skin. An excellent natural anti-ageing nutrient. Vitamin E is absorbed by the epidermis layer of the skin and can speed up cell regeneration which can help reduce the appearance of scars and acne. Look out for it in your face creams!
- Improves vision. To help improve vision vitamin E needs to be taken alongside vitamin A (see my last blog on Vitamin A) zinc and vitamin C. When taken alongside vitamin A it can help improve healing time and vision after laser eye surgery. It can also help reduce age related macular degeneration.
- Helps balance cholesterol. Certain molecules of Vitamin E can help fight cholesterol oxidation. Cholesterol is required by the body to assist with the function of everything from cells to hormones, so we want it to be at a healthy level and not let it oxidation occur.
- Balances hormones. Vitamin E balances the hormones in our bodies naturally which keeps our body functioning optimally. Supplementing with vitamin E a few days before your period can help reduce cramping and keep your cycle regular. It also can help during menopause by alleviating the symptoms and reducing stress in the body.
