Vitamin E protects cells from the damage caused by free radicals formed when food is converted into energy. People are also exposed to free radicals from cigarette smoke, air pollution, and ultraviolet light from the sun. So what can vitamin E do? A lot.
When cells are protected, so are we. Because of this, vitamin E has a huge potential to support overall health and longevity.
The body also utilizes vitamin E to boost immune function and fight off invading bacteria and viruses. It helps to widen blood vessels to keep blood from clotting, and cells use vitamin E to interact with each other and to carry out many other important functions.
