Vitamin E helps reduce free radical damage to body cells
Vitamin E is a fat-soluble vitamin and is involved in many processes in the body. Its most important function is that of an anti-oxidant to scavenge free radicals. Free radicals form as a result of normal body processes as well as exposure to environmental toxins such as cigarette smoke, air pollution, and ultraviolet radiation from the sun; and can cause damage that shortens the life of the cells. Prolonged or excessive exposure to free radicals has been implicated in many conditions, such as cardiovascular disease, degenerative diseases and accelerated ageing in general.
Vitamin E may help reduce free radical damage and slow the ageing process of cells, and thus help promote general health.1
Supports a healthy immune system
Even though Vitamin C is the first vitamin people think of to support the immune system, research has now established that the body also needs vitamin E to support the immune system so that it can fight off invading bacteria and viruses.2 Vitamin E is thought to support the immune system through its antioxidant function. Significant oxidative stress can damage immune cells, and deprive the body of the tools to repair them. Damaged immune cells die, which means the immune system cannot eliminate the pathogens and an infection can become chronic. By supplementing with vitamin E, it is possible to save immune cells from dying due to oxidative stress.3,4
Further research shows that the elderly could benefit from supplementing with vitamin E to support their immune system. Studies show that a daily intake of 200mg of vitamin E can improve the immune response to various vaccines in healthy subjects with no adverse effects.5
Enhanced resistance to viral diseases, again in the elderly, has been associated with a reduced number of infections over a three-year period.6 Research also found that men over 65 years of age, who lived in the city and smoked 5-14 cigarettes per day, and took Vitamin E daily, had a significantly decreased risk on the common cold.7
Several studies have demonstrated that vitamin E supports wound healing, and enhances the rate of wound closure, especially in the elderly.8
