Vitamin E is good for more than just moisturizing the skin. It acts as an antioxidant by protecting your cells and neutralizing free radicals.

Vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant, plays a crucial role in maintaining optimal health and well-being. This vitamin is renowned for its ability to protect cells from oxidative stress, support a robust immune system, and contribute to overall skin and eye health.

Vitamin E is also critical for brain health. A study by Dutch researchers found that patients who incorporated vitamin E into their diets cut their risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia by about 25 percent. In another study, vitamin E was shown to slow the decline of Alzheimer’s in those patients who already had the disease.
