What is Vitamin E?

Vitamin E is a compound that is fat-soluble and comes in many forms. It is known for its antioxidant qualities that help to counteract free radicals formed in the human body and is a key ingredient for normal reproduction of cells.

How does it work?

Many organs in the body rely on Vitamin E as an essential vitamin for their correct and efficient functioning. Its role as an antioxidant ensures the slow down of cell damage.

Our bodies contain alpha-tocopherol in significant quantities which is the type of Vitamin E that is commonly found. This is a compound that plays a vital role in human nutrition.

In a healthy body Vitamin E facilitates improvements to the circulatory system by enhancing the ability to clot blood more efficiently. It is also beneficial in the absorption of Vitamin K. Furthermore, the process of red blood cell generation is aided by Vitamin E in the human body. It is also known to reduce serious breathing difficulties. Injuries and scars applied with oil enriched Vitamin E is an ideal way to accelerate healing while preventing scarring. 

Used To Treat

Vitamin E’s main role as an antioxidant is to ward off the destruction of body tissue that result from the build up of free radicals. These harmful free radicals are often the cause of damage to cells, tissues and organs in the body. It is considered to be an essential ingredient in the prevention of aging.

How to take/dosage

The dosage of Vitamin required for each individual differs according their needs. Factors taken into consideration in determining the dosage depends on the individual’s age, weight and the condition being treated. Like all supplements Vitamin E should be taken with food to ensure better absorption as follows:

  • High blood pressure in pregnancy-A dose of 400iu taken daily together with Vitamin C 1000mg
  • Alzheimer’s disease-The dosage for this condition can go up to 2000iu taken daily
  • Liver disease-For children a daily dose of 400-1200iu is given and for adults the daily dose is 800iu
  • Vitamin E deficiency-The daily standard dosage for adults comprise of RRR-alpha tocopherol 60-75iu
  • Rheumatoid arthritis pain-A dose of 600iu to be taken twice a day
  • Infertility in males-200-600iu to be taken daily
  • Beta-thalassemia-A daily dose of 750iu to be taken

Possible side effects

The use of Vitamin E as a daily supplement can be harmful if taken in very high doses. People who have diabetes or heart disease should avoid taking more than 400iu per day. According to studies very high doses of Vitamin E cause serious side effects and can even be fatal on occasion.

One of the dangers of high doses of Vitamin E is that it can cause a serious stroke known as hemorrhagic stroke. It is found that doses of 500-800iu taken daily can increase the likelihood of a hemorrhagic stroke by nearly 22%. At the same time, Vitamin E is also responsible for minimizing the less serious stroke known as ischemic stroke.

Another area of concern with ingesting high doses of Vitamin E on a daily basis is the possibility that it might increase the chances of developing prostate cancer in men.

Other documented effects of high doses of Vitamin E include stomach cramps, diarrhea, mausea, weakness, headache, blurred vision, rash, fatigue, bleeding and bruising.

  • Taking Vitamin E in conjunction with blood thinning medication should be done under the guidance of a medical practitioner
  • No toxic medicines should be taken along with Vitamin E as Vitamin is a fat-soluble compound, it is likely to increase the toxin levels in fatty tissue
  • Vitamin E should never be taken at the same time as iron. Both iron and ferrous sulphate is liable to destroy Vitamin E. These have to be taken separately at different times of the day
  • Patients who suffer from rheumatic complaints, diabetes or overactive thyroid glands should keep within the recommended daily dosage
  • People with high blood pressure should start with a low dosage of around 200ius and gradually increase it to the desired level spread out over six weeks
  • The intake of a minimum dose of Zinc is recommended with Vitamin E
