Tocopherols, tocotrienols, Vitamin E

Vitamin E is a fat-soluble vitamin essential for the functioning of the body due to its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory action, which help the immune system, skin and hair and can prevent diseases such as atherosclerosis and Alzheimer’s.

  • Origin: Plant Based, Animal Product, Synthetic
  • Source: Fish, Wheat Germs, Peanuts, Almonds, Hazelnut, Sunflower Seeds, Avocado, Fruits
  • Type: Vitamin
  • Age Range: Adults, Seniors
  • Toxicity: May be toxic in high doses
  • Outcomes: Immunity, Specific Conditions, Immune Booster, Fatty Liver Condition

What are Vitamin E benefits?

Vitamin E is one of the nutrients that act as an antioxidant in the body, consisting of eight molecules and divided into two categories: tocopherols and tocotrienols. Vitamin E is usually found in natural foods, such as nuts, seeds, vegetable oils, fruits, and vegetables. It is also worth mentioning that because it is a fat-soluble vitamin, vitamin E performs several functions in the body, bringing the following benefits according to studies: improved heart and eye health, better skin health, improved immune system, reduced risk of bone fractures, especially in the elderly, protection against age-related cognitive decline, and relief of osteoarthritis symptoms, among others.

Immunity Vitamin E and Immunity

The immune system is made up of cells, tissues and organs that act in the organism's defense against the harmful effects of external microorganisms. The supplements indicated for immunity act as strengthening agents of this system, increasing the antibodies production and, consequently, its defense activity.
  • Immune Booster

    The immune system is responsible for defense against infectious agents, and is composed of leukocytes, macrophages, and lymphocytes. When immunity levels are low, the body is more likely to become infected with viruses, bacteria, and others. People who are easily infected can have low immunity for various reasons, such as family history diseases, poor diet, or absorption difficulties in some body function. Maintaining the intake of substances that strengthen immunity is to prevent diseases and prepare the body for any possible infection. To do this, it is important to turn your attention to what is ingested, exercise habits, and supplementation.

Specific Conditions Vitamin E and Specific Conditions

Specific body conditions categorize precise areas of our body, such as: Respiratory allergies; Liver; Eye health; Blood pressure; Cholesterol and triglycerides; and Blood glucose control. These areas require specific attention because they are delicate functions related to other parts of the body. Respiratory allergies, for example, are linked to the immune system, and to present an effective nutraceutical, we keep our scientific base up to date.
  • Fatty Liver Condition

    Normally we don't imagine fat in some organ but always in our belly as something we should lose, however, the fatty liver exists and can be a barrier for those who wish to lose weight. For fat to settle in the organ, it means that the body is not doing well. The hepatic steatosis, or fatty liver, is common in people who have a high level of overweight and obesity, diabetes, altered cholesterol and triglycerides, high blood pressure, and other heart diseases. Because it is something that is diagnosed late, keeping supplements that help prevent it is an option for those who want to invest in their health.
