Vitamin E has a variety of positive effects on our health. Particularly noteworthy is its antioxidant effect. Antioxidants are substances that protect our cells from so-called free radicals, which are increasingly released in the body during inflammatory processes, for example. Vitamin E is one of the most important protective vitamins and is present in every cell of the body. It intercepts radicals that attack the fatty acids of the body’s cells. Thus, it makes a great contribution with regard to the protection of the vessels and against arteriosclerosis.
In the human body, vitamin E is found in the liver, adipose tissue, adrenal glands, skeletal muscles, heart, and, in men, in the testicles. Vitamin E thus helps to protect cells from oxidative stress and is found in vegetable oils and spreadable fats made from them, nuts, and whole-grain products.
* Food supplements cannot replace a varied, healthy diet.
* Before any type of treatment, a consultation must be held with a doctor to obtain information about any vitamin deficiency, if necessary.
