Vitamin E, called the "vitamin of youth", participates in many important processes in the human body. Although the daily requirement for vitamin E is rather small, its deficiency can end in serious ailments.
Vitamin E is a group of compounds referred to as tocopherols. Together with vitamins A, D and K, they belong to the group of fat-soluble vitamins. This means that they are stored in the body (and not excreted in the urine or afterwards, like water-soluble vitamins), mainly in adipose tissue and adrenal glands.
In addition, absorption of the "vitamin of youth" by the body supports other vitamins, such as vitamin A, vitamin B complex, vitamin C, manganese, selenium, phosphorus and essential fatty acids.
It's good to know that there are various chemical forms of vitamin E available on the market:
Compounds that start with DL are synthetic (artificial) forms of vitamin E obtained chemically.
The compounds starting with D come from natural sources.
Only a well-balanced diet fully satisfies the body's needs for vitamin E. Unfortunately, in the times of ubiquitous highly processed food, excessive professional activity, and often encountering stressful situations, it is difficult to provide the body with the necessary amounts of this valuable vitamin. According to specialists from the Institute of Food and Nutrition, the daily requirement for vitamin E is varied and depends on from age, gender and physiological condition.
The main symptoms of vitamin E deficiency may be weakness in the ability to concentrate, skeletal muscles, anemia, infertility, premature aging of the skin, as well as cardiovascular disease.
It is worth emphasizing that the deficiency of vitamin E is endangered by: women taking birth control pills, people who smoke cigarettes, people with Bassen-Kornzweig syndrome, people suffering from cystic fibrosis or celiac disease.
Reasonable supplementation (294 mg per day corresponding to 400 IU) helps the body maintain a proper level of vitamin E.
