Vitamin E is a primary, fat-soluble antioxidant that works with other antioxidants to prevent free radical damage to cell membranes, inhibit oxidation and blood clotting, and support cardiovascular health. This high-potency capsule of natural vitamin E in a base of soybean oil provides a convenient, one-a-day dose to guarantee consistent amounts of this important antioxidant for extra support.
Oxidation is a natural and necessary process in which cells are broken down or converted to other forms. Although oxidation reactions are crucial for life, if accelerated, the process can be damaging. Plants, animals and people maintain complex multiple antioxidant systems including vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and dietary antioxidants. Pollution, physical and mental stress, drugs, alcohol and other chemicals can increase oxidation, which generates free radicals that are linked to age-related degenerative conditions including vision problems, heart disease, diabetes, osteoporosis, and Alzheimer’s disease. Vitamin E is a primary, fat-soluble antioxidant that protects the cells. In food, it is found in nuts, seeds, avocado, eggs and leafy greens. It is wise to consume antioxidants from a wide variety of sources to support overall health and add a supplement for a guaranteed consistent amount and extra support.
