    The basics

    Vitamin E is a fat-soluble vitamin that comes in two types of nutrients – tocopherols and tocotrienols. It's primarily known for its strong antioxidant properties, helping to protect the body's cells from damage caused by oxidative stress. Found in a variety of foods, but particularly oils like wheat germ and rice bran, Vitamin E is a vital nutrient that our bodies need to maintain good health.

    The Science

    Vitamin E's primary function is its role as a lipid-soluble antioxidant. It is integrated into the cell membrane, protecting polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs), like omega-3, from peroxidation by free radicals. This is crucial because PUFAs are vital cell membrane components, and their oxidation can lead to cell damage or death.
    Moreover, Vitamin E can also inhibit protein kinase C (PKC) activity, an enzyme involved in cell proliferation and differentiation, thus playing a potential role in preventing diseases such as cancer.

    Tocotrienols, a specific type of Vitamin E, have been shown to possess antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anticancer, neuroprotective, skin-protective and cholesterol-lowering properties, which are often superior to tocopherols. This is likely due to their better distribution in the lipid layers of the cell membrane.

    However, it's worth noting that tocotrienols are less studied than tocopherols, so while early research is promising, more studies are needed to understand their role and benefits fully.

    How will I know its working?

    You may experience improvements in skin health, including more radiant, resilient skin. It's harder to discern the internal benefits, but knowing you're supplying your body with a potent antioxidant to neutralise harmful free radicals is beneficial.

    When to take it?

    Take 1 tablet daily with food and water, unless specified otherwise on the sachet.
