Vitamin E Oil
Vitamin E Oil is a fat-soluble vitamin that exists in eight different forms. Each form has its own biological activity, the measure of potency or functional use in the body.
Alpha-tocopherol is the most active form of Vitamin E in humans, and is a powerful biological antioxidant. Antioxidants such as Vitamin E act to protect your cells against the effects of free radicals, which are potentially damaging by-products of the body’s metabolism.
Free radicals can cause cell damage that may contribute to the development of cardiovascular disease and cancer.
