Vitamin e is a fat-soluble vitamin that has antioxidant properties necessary for normal animal growth and reproduction. Vitamin e has a broad role in the prevention and treatment of cardiovascular disease, cancer, diabetes and other complications, central nervous system disorders, movement disorders, skin diseases and so on. The functions of vitamin e as follows:
1. Anti-aging: Vitamin e anti-aging principle and anti-free radicals are inseparable. The efficiency of vitamin e against free radicals and lipid peroxidation are high.
2. Enhance Immunity: The deficiency of vitamin e affects immune function in both humans and animals. It not only can reduce the humoral immunity, but also has a great influence on cellular immunity.
3. Eliminate Color Spots: Chloasma and age pigments are both caused by the deposition of lipofuscin in skin cells. Lipofuscin is an inert waste generated when cells are oxidized by free radicals. Not only does this substance appear as a variety of spots on the face, it can also deposit in the heart, liver and brain cells. The greatest function of vitamin e is to neutralize free radicals, thus contributing to the elimination of these spots. In addition, vitamin e also has the effect of expanding peripheral blood vessels, reducing blood viscosity.
4. Anti-cancer: The study found that the incidence of cancer seems to be inversely proportional to the level of serum vitamin e: people with low levels of vitamin e, a higher incidence of cancer.
