Humans and most animal species require vitamin E, which functions primarily as an antioxidant in protecting cells which, without enough, are very susceptible to free radical damage which results in accelerated degeneration and disease as well as faster overall aging. Useful in a wide range of conditions, its principal use has been in the protection against heart disease, cancer, and strokes.
Contrary to a couple of skewed, then sensationalized studies in the past several years, the safety of supplemental Vitamin E has been well established for decades. Vitamin E has been studied and used for well over 60 years with literally thousands of citations in the scientific literature. There’s an abundant amount of solid evidence demonstrating it’s benefits, including large scale trials that report 400 to 800 I.U. of natural Vitamin E can reduce heart attacks.
