Vitamin E is a well known and potent antioxidant, it can be taken with other antioxidants such as vitamin C and vitamin A as they boost and support each other’s antioxidant functions. Antioxidants play a key role in limiting damage to your cells caused by free radicals.
Vitamin E works synergistically with vitamin C and is known as ‘Vitamin E recycling” (where the antioxidant function of oxidized vitamin E is continuously restored by other antioxidants). As an antioxidant, vitamin E needs to be recycled once it has done its work, before it can function correctly again and continue to fight tissue damage. Glutathione and CoQ10 also help recycle tocopherol. Vitamin E protects vitamin A and essential fatty acids from oxidation in the body’s cells, helping to prevent breakdown of tissue.
Vitamin E along with vitamin C play complementary roles in skin health. Both nutrients protect the skin from sun damage – both work together to help maintain healthy collagen that is so important to skin strength. Vitamin C helps produce collagen, while vitamin E maintains correct crosslinks between collagen fibers and helps protect against lipid peroxidation. Having both nutrients in the skin helps protect it.
Vitamin E (as d-alpha tocopherol) 400 IU, Proprietary Blend 432 mg (d-gamma tocopherol, d-delta tocopherol and d-beta tocopherol).

Do not exceed the recommended daily dose. Keep out of reach of young children. Nutritional supplements should not replace a varied and balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle. Check with simultaneous intake of medicines with your physician or healthcare professional. No long-term use without professional advice.
Note: Ferrous sulphate, a commonly used iron compound, damages vitamin E and, therefore, should not be taken at the same time. Other forms of iron, such as ferrous fumarate or ferrous gluconate, do not have the same negative effect. As vitamin E is a blood thinner, if you are taking anticoagulants (blood thinners) you should check with your doctor to see which is the correct amount of vitamin E for you.
