Vitamin E 1300 IU Oil
- Prevents Free Radical Damage
- Prevents The Oxidation Process Of Fats
- For Disorders Involving Nerves And Muscles
Vitamin E is an antioxidant known for being extremely effective at what it does and at being very fat soluble. It is able to protect healthy cells from sustaining damage from free radicals which may seek to harm them.
One little known fact is that Vitamin E is not a single agent, but it is actually a name given to a variety of different compounds which are individually part of a family of Tocopherols and Tocotrienols. Each of these compounds has its own job and its own level of importance in the body.
In fact, the Vitamin E which is found naturally comes in not 1, but 8 different forms which each have their own importance in the body's biological processes. Since of the 8 forms of Vitamin E half are Tocopherols and the other half are Tocotrienols, this product contains large quantities of alpha, delta, and gamma Tocopherols and a few beta.
Alpha-Tocopherol is the most effective of these forms in terms of its tendency and ability to be absorbed by the body. It is located throughout the human blood stream and is known for being both the most active type of Vitamin E in the body and also the only naturally occurring kind of Alpha-Tocopherol. There is some research which remarks on the possibility for the effectiveness of Alpha-Tocopherol to be increased when in the presence of other tocopherols; however this research has yet to be proven for certain. As far as the comparison between natural and synthetic forms of Tocopherols, the competition isn't even close. Natural Tocopherol beats out synthetic Vitamin E in terms of retention as well as absorption every time.
Vitamin E can be found in many different skin creams because it is known for promoting skin health and elasticity. It can even increase the healing rate when a burn or cut has been sustained if it is applied in a timely manner. Vitamin E does not only protect the skin on the outside though, it also protects it at a deeper cellular level by keeping cell membranes well protected and giving them a defense against oxidation.
Vitamin E is absorbed into the blood via the lymph, which in turn takes it from the stomach just as is the case with bile and fats. Once it is in the blood, it can be transferred to the liver to be stored for later use. There the Tocopherols can use the liver as a base to send out agents to prevent free radicals from harming the body. As it is found in various supplements, Vitamin E is actually just Alpha-Tocopherol Acetate which above all, allows it to continue its antioxidant functions despite how it is absorbed and digested.
Vitamin E is a relatively common dietary supplement and is sold as such. It can even be derived naturally from a few different foods. Sometimes it is even present in foods as an additive. It is often prized particularly for its effectiveness as an antioxidant.
Free radicals are merely molecules with unshared electrons. These electrons are known for retaining a high level of energy and react very quickly with Reactive Oxygen Species, which are sometimes referred to as ROS for short. These ROS are formed during the simple metabolic process of transforming food into energy, and it is the job of the antioxidant to protect cells from the harmful effects of ROS. These molecules are also produced in the body as a result of exposure to cigarette smoke air pollution, and high levels of ultraviolet radiation from the sun.
This type of antioxidant works by stopping the production of ROS that occur when fats are being oxidized. There are a few different chronic diseases that are associated with free radicals and at this moment, scientists are studying whether the ability of Vitamin E to hinder these processes may actually have the capacity to prevent these diseases from occurring in the first place.
It is no surprise that Vitamin E also has a connection to immune system fortification given its importance as an antioxidant. However, it also has a link to various other types of metabolic processes including gene expression and cell signaling.
Health Benefits Provided By Vitamin E Oil 1300 IU/g
The most important role that Vitamin E has in the body is to keep up the integrity of cellular structure and prevent damage to the skin while also promoting healing of the skin after it has already been damaged. Vitamin E is also revered for its ability to prevent or at least slow down the oxidation process of fats and other types of nutrients.
Vitamin E is not only able to protect the skin, but also provides a protective membrane around the eyes, liver, testes, and breast; the parts of the body that are most prone to oxidation.
One thing that seems to be true for most antioxidants is that they tend to work well with other antioxidants. This means that when taken in conjunction with Vitamin C, Beta-Carotene, etc., the effects of each antioxidant will actually be magnified.
Vitamin E may have a strong effect on the elasticity of the skin, but it also has this same effect on arterial elasticity. This means that blood can flow, free of obstruction, and keep the arteries from being clogged.
One particularly threatening aspect of oxidation is its potential to deconstruct and damage DNA, but this troubling aspect can be prevented when Vitamin E is present.

Vitamin E Oil 1300 IU/g should be taken in a serving size of 1/16 tsp along with a meal and a large glass of water. A serving of this size will give slightly more than 1200% of the FDA recommended daily value for Vitamin E.
INGREDIENTS & FURTHER INFORMATION
Vitamin E Oil 1300 IU/g Side Effects
Even if suggested serving sizes are ignored, the possibility of any side effects resulting from Vitamin E overdose is quite low. However, if you happen to be taking medications with anticoagulant capabilities, or if you have been diagnosed with diabetes or any other blood disorder, this product should not be consumed in excess as it may cause these types of medications to have their effects magnified, which may be dangerous. If you are currently taking any medication it is best to discuss taking this supplement with a doctor beforehand as you might like to know what drug interactions Vitamin E will have. Also, taking Vitamin E too much in excess may cause adverse side effects such as nausea, vomiting, gastrointestinal discomfort, bleeding, poor blurry vision, skin rash, gastrointestinal discomfort, cramps, and even stroke. However as stated above, as long as suggested serving sizes are adhered to everything should be fine, and even at high levels, risk of side effects is startlingly low.
