What's Vitamin E And Its Benefits

Why do people take natural vitamin E? Many people use natural vitamin E supplements in the hopes that the vitamin's antioxidant properties will prevent or treat disease. But studies of natural vitamin E for preventing cancer, heart disease, diabetes, Alzheimer's disease, cataracts, and many other conditions have been inconclusive.  


natural Vitamin E is key for strong immunity and healthy skin and eyes. In recent years, vitamin E supplements have become popular as antioxidants. These are substances that protect cells from damage. However, the risks and benefits of taking vitamin E supplementsare still unclear.  So far, the only established benefits of vitamin E supplements are in people who have an actual deficiency. Vitamin E deficiencies are rare. They're more likely in people who have diseases, such as digestive problems and cystic fibrosis. People on very low-fat diets may also have low levels of vitamin E.  How much vitamin E should you take? The recommended dietary allowance (RDA) includes the vitamin E you get from both the food you eat and any supplements you take.  Category  Vitamin E (alpha-tocopherol): Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) in milligrams (mg) and International Units (IU)  CHILDREN  1-3 years  6 mg/day (9 IU)  4-8 years  7 mg/day (10.4 IU)  9-13 years  11 mg/day (16.4 IU)  FEMALES  14 years and up  15 mg/day (22.4 IU)  Pregnant  15 mg/day (22.4 IU)  Breastfeeding  19 mg/day (28.5 IU)  MALES  14 years and up  15 mg/day (22.4 IU)  The tolerable upper intake levels of a supplement are the highest amount that most people can take safely. Higher doses might be used to treat vitamin E deficiencies. But you should never take more unless a doctor says so.  Category (Children & Adults)  Tolerable Upper Intake Levels (UL) of Vitamin E (alpha-tocopherol) in milligrams (mg) and International Units (IU)  1-3 years  200 mg/day (300 IU)  4-8 years  300 mg/day (450 IU)  9-13 years  600 mg/day (900 IU)  14-18 years  800 mg/day (1,200 IU)  19 years and up  1,000 mg/day (1,500 IU)  Because vitamin E is fat-soluble, supplements are best absorbed with food.
