Vitamin E

Vitamin E is a fat-soluble nutrient found in many foods, essential for overall health.

Benefits of vitamin E

It offers antioxidant protection and promotes a healthy whole-body inflammatory response, which can promote heart, brain, and immune health.

  • Vitamin E plays an important role in maintaining the barrier function of the skin. 
  • It appears to enhance the penetration and resorption of skin lipids.
  • Gamma tocopherol helps supply potent protection against cardiovascular disease, cancer, and even neurodegenerative conditions. 
  • Gamma tocopherol has superior anti-inflammatory and gene regulatory activities. 
  • However, alpha-tocopherol remains a potent antioxidant.
  • Furthermore, vitamin E has been shown to modulate allergies. Low maternal intake during pregnancy is linked with breathing problems in children, and supplementation may improve symptoms of seasonal allergies.

Vitamin E for skin

Topical application of the gamma tocotrienol form of vitamin E regulates gene signals in the skin to reduce common causes of skin deterioration. 

As you may not know, gamma tocopherol is the form of vitamin E most prevalent in our natural diets. In addition to its impressive antioxidant capacity, gamma tocopherol possesses key functions critical to our well-being. 

It is now recognized that gamma tocopherol, like alpha tocopherol, is retained in the body and delivered to tissues. Gamma tocopherol has far more powerful anti-inflammatory actions than the alpha form does. 

More so, it is more potent at inhibiting certain inflammatory cytokines in cell culture and in living animals. It can inhibit production of stress-related “heat shock proteins” that result from inflammatory stimuli.
