The most powerful antioxidant on earth

See also

Of all antioxidants on the planet, there is one that is so versatile and so potent that it can be named the most powerful on earth: Vitamin E. Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant which can protect the skin, reduce cholesterol, boost the immune system, and regulate hormones. The moisturizing properties of vitamin E allow it to both protect and heal the skin when applied topically or consumed through foods and supplements. Skin benefits are the most commonly known uses for vitamin E supplements today.

Getting enough vitamin E in your diet is extraordinarily easy to do when you include plenty of key foods in your diet. These foods include nuts such as almonds, peanuts, and sunflower seeds as well as herbs such as basil and oregano. Spinach is a great source of vitamin E as well and is extremely versatile when cooking.

For those who cannot get enough vitamin E in their diet, vitamin E supplements are also available to take orally or topically. When consuming vitamin E supplements, it should be noted that you should not consume more than 1,000 IU per day.
