Vitamin E softgel with 400 IU natural vitamin E for antioxidant protection and cardiovascular support.
Vitamin E is one of the body’s most important antioxidant nutrients. Antioxidants protect healthy cells from
oxidative and free radical damage. Free radicals are unstable chemicals formed in the body during
metabolism and from exposure to environmental sources. Free radicals are necessary for energy metabolism
and immune function, but when an excessive number of free radicals are formed, they can attack healthy cells,
especially cell membrane lipids and proteins. Vitamin E is an especially valuable antioxidant in the cell
membranes, where it prevents oxidation of unsaturated fatty acids by trapping free radicals. This helps
stabilize and protect cell membranes, especially red blood cells and tissues sensitive to oxidation, such as the
lungs, eyes, and arteries. Vitamin E also supports the liver and other physiological processes. Related to
its antioxidant properties, vitamin E is important for normal immune function, and many studies show that it
prevents lipid peroxidation of blood lipoproteins, such as LDL-cholesterol.
