Health Benefits of Vitamin E

One vitamin that dissolves in fat is vitamin E. It can be found in a wide variety of foods, such as fruits, vegetables, meat, poultry, eggs, and cereals. An essential vitamin for many bodily organs’ correct operation is vitamin E. Moreover, it is an antioxidant. The vitamin E found in foods naturally (RRR-alpha-tocopherol) is not the same as the synthetic vitamin E found in supplements.

Health benefits of Vitamin E are:

1. Alzheimer’s illness: Alzheimer’s disease does not appear to be prevented by oral vitamin E supplements. However, taking vitamin E in addition to some anti-Alzheimer medications may help slow down memory loss in those who already have the disease.

2. Beta-thalassemia: A blood condition that lowers haemoglobin (a protein) levels in the blood. Children with this blood disorder seem to benefit from oral vitamin E.

3. Cramps during menstruation (dysmenorrhea): It appears that taking oral vitamin E for two days prior to the onset of bleeding and for three days following the onset of bleeding can lessen discomfort and menstrual blood loss.

4. G6PD deficiency: This is an inherited disorder that results in the breakdown of red blood cells in response to stress. Taking vitamin E orally, either by itself or in conjunction with selenium.

5. Internal bleeding (intracranial haemorrhage) in the skull: This needs oral vitamin E administration appears to lower the incidence of skull bleeding in premature babies.

6. Bleeding into or near the brain’s ventricles, which are fluid-filled sections (intraventricular haemorrhage): Vitamin E given orally to premature babies lowers the chance of brain haemorrhage. However, giving these babies large doses of vitamin E may raise their risk of developing sepsis, a dangerous blood infection.
