Vitamin E is a fat-soluble vitamin found naturally in many foods including nuts, green leafy vegetables, fatty fish, poultry and grains. It is important for metabolic maintenance and cell function. Vitamin E complex 400 IU supplements also work as antioxidants, important elements that protect the body from oxygen free radicals that can damage cells. The vitamin naturally contains four tocopherols and four tocotrienols. Alpha-tocopherol, the main form used by the human body, is the most widely studied.
People use vitamin E complex 400 IU supplements for a number of potential health benefits including:
- Healthy skin and hair
- Heart health
- Lowering cholesterol
- Metabolic maintenance and strengthening the immune system
- Supporting neurological functions and nerve activity
Although health professionals recommend meeting nutritional needs from foods, most Americans do not get adequate levels of vitamin E in their diets. Supplementation with vitamin E complex 400 IU by Metabolic Maintenance provides 80 percent alpha-tocopherol and a mix of other tocopherols in a gel capsule. Vitamin E can be taken internally or applied directly to the skin. When applied topically, it penetrates all layers of the skin, enhancing the antioxidant benefits.
