Benefits of Vitamin E

Vitamin E is generally used to help heal or prevent skin problems. It is also associated with healthy hair. However, it also works behind the scenes in helping to reduce brain diseases such as dementia and Alzheimer’s. Vitamin E is also high in antioxidants which helps to prevent cell damage from free radicals.

A deficiency of vitamin E can cause muscle weakness and nerve damage. Luckily a vitamin E deficiency is rare and when it occurs it’s not caused by a lack of vitamin E in the diet but by other medical problems.
