Solgar Natural Source Liquid Vitamin E Oil. Mixed tocopherol complex with safflower and sunflower oils. Vitamin E is an important, essential nutrient that is crucial for good health. It is the body's primary, fat-soluble antioxidant and appears naturally in several variant forms, called tocopherols. It is found in most vegetable oils, wheat germ, raw seeds and nuts, eggs, leafy vegetables and legumes. Vitamin E supports various bodily functions, including nutritional support for the skin, and the immune system. As an antioxidant, it helps fight cell-damaging free radicals that cause oxidative stress in the body, which may contribute to the premature aging of cells. This formulation provides natural Vitamin E in a convenient dropper dosage form. Provides d-Alpha, d-Beta, d-Delta and d-Gamma tocopherol. Suitable for vegans. Sugar, dairy, yeast, salt and starch free. 5 drops (0.25ml) provides 100IU Vitamin E. 59.2 ml.
How does a deficiency of Vitamin E display in the body?
The first sign of a deficiency is the rupture of red blood cells, which have become increasingly fragile. The absorption of fat and fat soluble vitamins is reduced with a deficiency of Vitamin E. The result may be cystic fibrosis, blockage of the bile ducts and chronic inflammation of the pancreas.
Is Vitamin E an Antioxidant?
Vitamin E is not only an antioxidant, it is also of great importance in energy production. It is necessary for the proper focusing of the eyes in middle aged people. It is an antioxidant that helps prevent cancer and cardiovascular disease. It improves circulation, repairs tissue and is useful in treating fibrocystic breasts and PMT. It also promotes normal clotting and healing, reduces scarring from some wounds, reduces blood pressure, aids in preventing cataracts, improves athletic performance and aids in leg cramps. Vitamin E also prevents cell damage by inhibiting lipid peroxidation and the formation of free radicals. It retards aging and may prevent age spots as well.
The body needs Zinc in order to maintain the proper levels of vitamin E in the blood.
