Vitamin E(100% D-Alpha Tocopherol ) is used by many in fighting auto-immune diseases and some infections.
A recent meta-analysis in the Clinical Nutrition journal has also found that taking Vitamin E significantly decreased primary dysmenorrhea, otherwise known as period pain or menstrual cramps.
Many studies have also found that Vitamin E can help improve hot flashes caused by estrogen deficiency. Vitamin E also has a beneficial effect on bone formation in postmenopausal women.
Health Leads vitamin E is non-refined and non-deodorised. Why is this so important? Refined oils are made by intensive mechanical and chemical processes to extract oil from the seeds. This process removes the natural nutrients.
Vitamin E cannot be high dosed ; The range for supplementation is between 150mg/225iu (for healthy people ) and 400mg/595iu (for those with symptoms or lifestyles suggestive of increased need). These recommendations are broadly consistent with the results of a study which concluded the level of vitamin E most positively associated with reduced mortality was 221mg/330iu.
