Vegan vitamin E
Holland & Barrett Natural Vitamin E 400IU Vegan is the vegan option within our range of vitamin E supplements. It is a great alternative to oils and non-vegan supplements.
Following a vegan diet can often mean that you miss out on essential nutrients which the body needs.
There are a wide variety of vitamin E foods available in the diet, and most of these are plant-based vitamin E.
Vegan sources of vitamin E include vegetable oils, such as sunflower or rapeseed oil, nuts and seeds, avocado and leafy greens, such as spinach and kale.
If your diet does not include any of these foods, for example if you are following a no fat diet, then it might be a good idea to take an additional supplement, to top up the body’s vitamin E levels.
Vitamin E benefits
Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant and it is involved in lots of different processes in the body.
It is fat-soluble, which means that it is dissolved in fat and is stored within the body to be used as and when it needs it.
Vitamin E cannot be made by the body and so it must be obtained through your diet and via supplements.
Perhaps its most important role in the body is to protect the cells from the damage known as oxidative stress, which is caused by free radicals.
Left unchecked, oxidative stress can cause damage to the skin cells, proteins and DNA.
Causes of oxidative stress
Oxidative stress is caused to the cells when there is an excess of free radicals in the body and there is an imbalance between these and antioxidants. Free radicals are produced by the cells as part of their normal processes.
Excess free radical production can be caused by a poor diet, smoking, exposure to air pollutants and exposure to UV rays.
