Vitamin E - Tocopherol:
Vitamin E, also called Tocopherol, is a powerful antioxidant that protects
your body from free radicals that speed up the ageing process and damages your
cells. Your body does not store Vitamin E for very long so regular intake of
Vitamin E is important.
Vitamin E is found in many foods so it is rare
that a deficiency of this vitamin is possible if you eat normal, healthy, meals.
However, Vitamin E is destroyed by cooking and freezing so if you only eat
frozen meals that have been micro waved, it is possible that you are not getting
enough Vitamin E.
Vitamin E is very good for your skin, is an
anticoagulant, assists in controlling body temperature, supports the activity of
vitamin A and helps to keep your heart and blood vessels healthy.
