Guard your cells against the damaging effects of free radicals with the antioxidant protection of Swanson Full Spectrum E with Tocotrienols, our most complete vitamin E supplement ever!
Whenever we hear about a vitamin, we tend to think two things. Firstly, if it's a vitamin - we're going to need it, right? And secondly, if it's a vitamin, aren't I already getting it from my diet?
The answer to both questions should undoubtedly be yes but while you certainly do need it, there is definitely a chance that you aren't yet getting it.
Vitamin E is an essential fat-soluble vitamin most commonly found in liver, nuts, vegetable oils and some fruits and vegetables. We need it because it plays a vital role in several key body functions. By working as an antioxidant, it helps to protect cell membranes from the damage that is caused by toxic free radical cells and the subsequent oxidation of LDL cholesterol.
Much like its sister Vitamin B, Vitamin E is something of an umbrella name - it actually comprises of a group of eight compounds known as Tocopherols and Tocotrienols. These are all the naturally occurring forms of the Vitamin. Until now though, in the world of nutritive supplementation, there has been relatively little research into the exciting properties of those Tocotrienols.
We need Vitamin E for several essential daily functions:
So how do we know if we need more Vitamin E in our diet and is it something that we should really leave to chance? The National Institutes of Health recommend that adult men and women get at least 22.4 IU of Vitamin E daily. Women who are pregnant or lactating need at least 28.4 IU daily.
