Vitamin E Info

Vitamin E is a collection of fat soluble compounds called tocopherols and tocotrienols. The major forms are designated alpha, beta, delta and gamma-tocopherols or tocotrienols.

To date the alpha-tocopherol form has been mainly used to produce vitamin E supplements, however recent research has highlighted the superior benefits of following nature’s blueprint and using mixed tocopherols and tocotrienols.

Natural forms of vitamin E are more readily absorbed by the body than synthetic forms.

Vitamin E Benefits

Vitamin E is an antioxidant with important protective activity against damage to cell membranes from free radicals due to air pollutants and chemical toxins. As well as helping maintain cell membrane integrity, vitamin E enhances immune function. It supports cardiovascular health by protecting artery walls and reducing plaque development due to the harmful effects of oxidated LDL-cholesterol.

Vitamin E used either internally or topically can be an effective treatment for wounds and skin conditions such as eczema or dermatitis. Vitamin E is an important nutrient in sperm health and fertilisation. Babies born prematurely usually have low levels of vitamin E, as do women with preeclampsia. Vitamin E also supports eye health, hormonal balance in women and age-related memory function.

Vitamin E Side Effects

Moderate doses are safe during pregnancy and breastfeeding when taken as directed. Caution if taking anticoagulant medication such as warfarin.

Product Reviews

  • Didn't work for me

    star

    I tried this product because of the numerous exhausting hot flushes I was having at night-time. However, it didn't stop the hot flushes, and it had adverse side effects for me. My skin and hair became very dry, and I had to drink a lot of water as I felt dehydrated. It is a good diuretic, and clears your skin up, if that is what you are after. So then I tried Black Cohosh, but that made my heart go funny. Then I tried very low dose progesterone, and that stopped the hot flushes. But made me bloated and increased my appetite. Currently I have found that Go Healthy Meno-Free helps me sleep, but the Black Cohosh in it makes my heart a bit funny, so I cannot take it regularly. So I am trialling something else at present...

  • Great product

    star

    I am taking this to manage my fibroids together with green tea extract, and I can see immediate results. The pain has decreased and my periods are lighter now. I tried other DIM products and they didn't work for me. I feel that this one is very gentle, but effective. I will be ordering more.
