Vitamin E is a very popular organic compound because of its outstanding antioxidant properties, but do we know what it means for a substance to have antioxidant properties? Why is this concept so fashionable? What is vitamin E? What beneficial effects can vitamin E have on our bodies and, in particular, on our skin?
In this article, we will answer these and other questions related to the benefits of vitamin E. We will also present the formula and the advantages of taking Vitamin E Complex, an innovative food supplement from Nutralie that is ideal for strengthening the presence of vitamin E in our diet, as well as for boosting the protection of our cells.
Vitamin E: a fat-soluble nutrient that is essential in our diet
Vitamin E is an essential fat-soluble nutrient in the human diet. Its health benefits include, above all, its contribution to protecting cells against oxidative damage, as endorsed by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA). It is, therefore, preferable to take it into account in our eating habits. As we shall see, it plays a crucial role in protecting our skin as an antioxidant.
What does it really mean that vitamin E is an antioxidant?
Cellular oxidation is a chemical process that takes place in our bodies and, just as it is essential for human survival, it is also a key factor in ageing. In fact, cellular oxidation, by weakening our cells, is the main cause of skin ageing, as it damages our dermis and epidermis during this process.
Antioxidants, on the other hand, as their name suggests, are substances that prevent or delay certain cellular oxidation processes by neutralising free radicals. This is the case with vitamin E, for example. Its action in our body thus contributes to counteracting the effects of cellular oxidation on our skin. If we want to combat skin ageing, vitamin E is undoubtedly our vitamin of choice.
The presence of vitamin E in our daily diet
Having said all this, the question you are probably wondering about now is how to make vitamin E part of our diet, in the right doses. As we shall see below, there are many and varied ways of ingesting the necessary and beneficial amounts of vitamin E for our bodies.
Firstly, to boost vitamin E, we can choose to eat certain specific foods, such as virgin olive oil, olives, nuts, avocado and green leafy vegetables such as spinach, chard and broccoli. All these foods are highly recommended because of their vitamin E content.
Food supplements: a very effective way of supporting vitamin E intake
We can also ensure the presence of vitamin E in our bodies, or boost it, with the help of food supplements. Food supplements are an important support for a varied and balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle. In this particular case, it is worth noting that we have a specific supplement which guarantees the necessary dosage of vitamin E. This is Nutralie’s Vitamin E Complex.
Vitamin E Complex by Nutralie: discover the formula of this potent antioxidant
Vitamin E Complex by Nutralie is a very powerful antioxidant, with maximum natural absorption, which protects our cells through the effect of up to eight molecules of tocopherols and tocotrienols. Tocopherols represent the most natural and vitamin-active form of vitamin E, while tocotrienols, on the other hand, have, according to several scientific studies, even higher absorption than tocopherols.
The Vitamin E Complex formula therefore includes a full spectrum of vitamin E, thanks to the action of tocopherols and tocotrienols, mixed in all their variants: alpha, beta, gamma and delta.
It is also important to note, with regard to its composition, that Nutralie Vitamin E Complex has been produced under a controlled and certified process that has been guided by the strictest quality protocols, from the origin of its components to the final product.
How many doses of Vitamin E Complex should I take daily?
Vitamin E Complex is a packaged food supplement comprising 60 softgels. According to experts, it is advisable to take one capsule of Vitamin E Complex a day, with a little water. Please note that this figure should not be interpreted as a guideline only. It is important not to exceed the recommended daily dose, i.e. one capsule of Vitamin E Complex per day. Too much vitamin E can also have negative effects on the body.
Pregnant and breastfeeding women should first consult a health professional before taking Vitamin E Complex, as with any other food supplement.
It should also be noted that it is best to keep the container tightly closed, in a cool, dry place, and, of course, out of the reach of young children.
Benefit from the beneficial effects of vitamin E
As we have seen, vitamin E is a substance with beneficial effects for our bodies and, in particular, for skin care. Its antioxidant properties contribute, as the European Food Safety Authority has shown, to the protection of cells against oxidative damage. It is therefore important to incorporate vitamin E into our diet as far as possible.
To get the necessary dose of vitamin E, we can prioritise certain very specific foods in our eating habits, such as olive oil, olives, nuts, avocado and green leafy vegetables (spinach, chard, broccoli, etc.). At the same time, we can also choose to take food supplements designed to boost vitamin E, such as Nutralie’s Vitamin E Complex.
