Vitamin E and Joint Health

Vitamin E or D-Alpha Tocopherol Succinate is an antioxidant, a nutrient that may protect cells against the damage caused by free radicals.

When the body breaks down food or is exposed to radiation or tobacco, it creates free radicals. Studies show that the buildup of these free radicals is responsible for the aging process and may lead to arthritis, heart disease, and cancer.

Vitamin E also plays a pivotal role in managing the immunity system and metabolism.

Vitamin E can be found in leafy greens, vegetable oils, seeds, nuts, and margarine. Some cereals are fortified with vitamin E, meaning vitamin e has been added to them.

People suffering from cystic fibrosis, Crohn’s disease, and liver disease may need additional vitamin E.

Vitamin E is also available in many natural health supplements.
