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.
Each gelatine capsule provides a full 200iu of natural Vitamin E, and contains no gluten, yeast, dairy or nuts. For those who require a vegetarian or vegan friendly Vitamin E supplement, our Vitamin E Oil is certified by the Vegan Society.
