The Health Benefits of Vitamin E
Vitamin E is another powerful antioxidant found in Dead Sea Moringa. Vitamin E reacts with free radicals in a way that allows other antioxidants, like vitamin C, to come in and neutralize the cell-destroying free radicals.
Fortunately, unlike many other vitamins and minerals in our diet, it is incredibly difficult to suffer from true vitamin E deficiency. Actual deficiency requires the presence of preexisting medical conditions, or prolonged hunger and malnutrition. However, according to the Linus Pauling Institute at Oregon State University:
… marginal intake of vitamin E is relatively common in the U.S. Between 1988 and 1994, the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey III (NHANES III) examined the dietary intake and blood levels of alpha-tocopherol in 16,295 adults (over the age of 18). Twenty-seven percent of white participants, 41% of African Americans, 28% of Mexican Americans, and 32% of the other participants were found to have blood levels of alpha-tocopherol less than 20 micromoles/liter.
This chronic, marginal intake prevents the body from taking advantage of the many benefits of vitamin E, and can put you at an increased risk for heart disease and memory loss!
This is because vitamin E functions best as a supplement to decrease risk factors for developing cardiovascular disease by creating and maintaining healthy red blood cells, preventing blood from clotting, and widening arteries. In the brain, it works as a powerful antioxidant to prevent the future loss of brain function that occurs from the constant bombardment of free radicals.
That’s not all! In conjunction with other vitamins, vitamin E can help improve the vision of those suffering from macular degeneration (AMD)! As one of the leading causes of blindness, this makes adding vitamin E to your diet even more important.
Only by making vitamin E a long-term part of your daily nutritional intake can you truly take advantage of the benefits it has to offer. With 3 times the vitamin E in almonds—the leading natural source for vitamin E—Dead Sea Moringa can provide you with the nutrition you need to remain healthy and vibrant for years to come!
