Vitamin E has been getting a lot of attention in recent years, thanks to the valuable nutritional support it delivers for a strong heart and cardiovascular system, but it's more than just a heart-health vitamin.
Antioxidants are very much the supplement 'du jour', and with good reason. But are they becoming little more than a byword for the next big superfood you 'should' be eating? How can we even tell what is an antioxidant and what isn't these days? The reality is that antioxidants are everywhere. They exist in colour pigmentation as much as they exist in enzymes. But it is in the vitamins upon which we depend so much that they truly flourish.
Of course, you've heard of vitamin E before but can you honestly say you knew what it was? Well it turns out that, amongst other things, it is one of those mysterious antioxidants you've heard so much about.
This fat-soluble vitamin is found mostly in healthy fats, oils and nuts. It offers valuable nutritional support to help you maintain a strong heart and healthy cardiovascular system.
Also important in helping your body to produce red blood cells, and utilise vitamin K properly, Swanson Natural Vitamin E is the supplement you didn't even realise you were missing.
Symptoms of a serious vitamin E deficiency are unpleasant. They include:
If that deficiency is allowed to continue it can even cause more serious issues such as liver and kidney failure. And while most people will never reach this stage of deficiency, there is an alarming number of us who aren't getting enough.
Vitamin E is made up of eight naturally occurring nutrients. These are known as tocotrienols and tocopherols (four of each). And while each of these nutrients is a fat-soluble antioxidant, they all affect us in slightly different ways.
Chief amongst this group is the alpha-tocopherol. It possesses a unique ability to battle the effects of toxic free radicals on both the heart and the cardiovascular system as a whole. And because it is fat soluble, it offers protection against damage to the fats (lipids) that line every one of the cells in our body.
That's important because when the membrane fats become damaged, our cells aren't able to function properly. Swanson Natural Vitamin E offers a simple and effective way to bolster that all too important antioxidant support without necessarily having to make sure you're getting enough seed, fats or oils everyday.
