Natures Aid Vitamin E 200iu Natural Form is a 200iu strength Vitamin E supplement in an easy to swallow softgel capsule. Vitamin E is a fat soluble Vitamin, most commonly found in nuts, seeds, vegetable oils and green leafy vegetables. It is often used as a natural preservative, as it works as an antioxidant - protecting against oxidative stress.
There are two forms of vitamin E used in food supplements, D-alpha tocopherol, and DL-alpha tocopherol. D-alpha tocopherol, is the natural form of Vitamin E, at Natures Aid, the Vitamin E supplement is made using exclusively this natural form.
As well as food supplements, Vitamin E is often found in face creams and body oils because of its anti-oxidant action, but what exactly does this mean? Oxidative stress is the damage which can occur to body cells if levels of substances known as free radicals start to build up. Free Radicals are unstable molecules which can damage our body cells. They are caused by smoking, UV light and heating cooking oils to high temperatures. Free radicals are also found in processed foods like bacon, sausages and salami. Anti-oxidant nutrients like Vitamin E can help to protect the cells of the body by neutralising free radicals, and thus protect body cells against oxidative stress.
Take 1-2 softgels per day with food. Do not exceed the recommended intake.
