Want An Anti-aging Vitamin or Want to fight Alzheimer's? Vitamin E Has Great Promise! Read Why.

Vitamin E is an essential vitamin which helps combat the effects of aging on our skin. Nutritionists say there are two types of vitamins: water-soluble (able to be dissolved) and fat-soluble. Vitamin E is a fat-soluble vitamin. Vitamin E is a very good antioxidant and this is important. During natural cellular activity by-products these free radicals are formed and these are known to cause tissue and cellular damage. They may also add to the causes of cancer and cardiovascular diseases. Vitamin E protects not only cell membranes, but also other fat-soluble parts like low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol from the damaging effects of free radicals. Vitamin E also aids in proper blood clotting and improves wound healing.
