Benefits of Vitamin E:
Antioxidant Protection: Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that helps protect cells from damage caused by free radicals, which can contribute to aging and chronic diseases.
Heart Health: It may help prevent the oxidation of LDL (bad) cholesterol, reducing the risk of plaque buildup in arteries and promoting cardiovascular health.
Skin Health: Vitamin E is commonly used in skincare products due to its moisturizing and nourishing properties. It may help improve skin texture, reduce dryness, and protect against UV damage.
Eye Health: It plays a role in maintaining healthy eyesight and may help reduce the risk of age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and cataracts.
Immune Function: Vitamin E supports immune function and helps the body fight off infections.
Brain Health: Some research suggests that vitamin E may help protect against cognitive decline and reduce the risk of conditions like Alzheimer’s disease.
Inflammation: It has anti-inflammatory properties and may help reduce inflammation in the body, associated with various chronic diseases.
Dosage of Vitamin E:
The recommended daily allowance (RDA) for vitamin E varies depending on age and sex. The following are the RDAs in milligrams (mg):
Infants 0-6 months: 4 mg
Infants 7-12 months: 5 mg
Children 1-3 years: 6 mg
Children 4-8 years: 7 mg
Children 9-13 years: 11 mg
Adolescents and adults (14 years and older): 15 mg
It’s important to note that these are general recommendations for healthy individuals. Higher doses may be prescribed for certain medical conditions under the guidance of a healthcare professional.
Side Effects of Vitamin E:
When taken within the recommended dosage, vitamin E is generally safe for most people. However, high doses (above 1,000 mg per day) can increase the risk of bleeding, particularly in individuals taking blood-thinning medications. Some potential side effects associated with excessive vitamin E intake include nausea, diarrhea, stomach cramps, fatigue, and an increased risk of hemorrhagic stroke.
It’s worth mentioning that getting vitamin E from food sources is generally safe and preferable to relying solely on supplements. Good dietary sources of vitamin E include nuts and seeds, spinach, broccoli, vegetable oils, and fortified cereals.
