Vitamin E is a fat-soluble nutrient that your body stores to use as and when it needs it. As it is a natural antioxidant, it is involved in multiple processes in the body, including protecting it from excessive oxidative stress.

The main benefit of vitamin E is that it helps protect the cells in our body from oxidative stress.
What type of vitamin E do I need?
When it comes to vitamin E supplements, there are two types: the natural one ‘d-alpha-tocopherol’ and the synthetic one ‘dl-alpha-tocopherol’. The natural form of vitamin E is much easier for the body to absorb and the RDA is just 22.4 IUs, whereas you need to take 33.3IU of the synthetic form of vitamin E.
