The term vitamin E refers to several fat-soluble compounds. These are also called tocopherols. In nature, only plants produce tocopherols. Vegetable oils and nuts in particular are good sources of vitamin E.
Vitamin E - protection for cells and blood vessels
Like vitamin C, vitamin E also belongs to the group of antioxidants and is known as a free radical scavenger. Free radicals are aggressive oxygen compounds that are produced in the body during a wide variety of metabolic processes and attack our cells. The body has its own protective system, but it can be overwhelming. Vitamin E can provide good support here and our cells protection. Vitamin E helps protect cells from oxidative stress. Vitamin E can also prevent the oxidation of the "bad" LDL cholesterol. Oxidized LDL cholesterol damages the vessel walls. Vitamin E is also important for maintaining the proper functioning of nerves, muscles and blood.
Nutritional supplements: Your daily vitamin E requirements
The German Society for Nutrition recommends taking 11-15 mg of vitamin E per day, depending on age and gender. In certain life situations that are associated with increased oxidative stress, such as high physical stress, diabetes or chronic inflammation, the vitamin E requirement can be increased (1). Since vitamin E is always absorbed through fatty foods, it is particularly important in the case of a long-lasting low fat diet care should be taken to ensure adequate vitamin E intake (1).
