I'm a big believer that healthy, youthful skin comes from what we put IN our bodies, rather than what we put ON our bodies. This vitamin in excellent for helping us achieve beautiful glowing skin, bright, shiny eyes, and thick, glossy hair.
Introducing vitamin E!
Increasing our vitamin E-rich foods can also help in the treatment and prevention of diseases of the heart and blood vessels (chest pains, high blood pressure, and blocked or hardened arteries).
Other benefits include:
Repairs Damaged Skin
Vitamin E benefits skin by strengthening the capillary walls and improving moisture and elasticity, acting as a natural anti-ageing nutrient within your body. Studies have shown that vitamin E reduces inflammation both within your body and on your skin, helping maintain healthy, youthful skin.
Taking vitamin E with vitamin C fights skin inflammation after exposure to UV radiation and can also be useful in decreasing signs of acne and eczema. It also helps the healing process in the skin. It’s absorbed by the epidermis layer of the skin and can be used to treat sunburn, which is one of the leading causes of skin cancer, among other factors. Because it speeds up cell regeneration, it can be used to treat scars, acne and wrinkles; this makes your skin look healthier and younger. (1)
Because vitamin E helps decrease environmental damage to your hair and promotes circulation to the scalp. Vitamin E oil can retain the natural moisture in your skin, which helps your scalp from becoming dry and flakey and makes your hair look healthier and fresher. You can apply a few drops of vitamin E oil on your hair, especially if it looks dry and dull.
Helps PMS Symptoms
Vitamin E can reduce cramping, anxiety, cravings and other PMS symptoms and decrease pain severity and duration, by balancing your hormones naturally, and it keeping your menstrual cycle regulated.
Improves Physical Endurance and Muscle Strength
Vitamin E can increase energy and reduce the level of oxidative stress on muscles after you exercise and improve your muscle strength. It eliminates fatigue by promoting blood circulation and can also strengthen your capillary walls and nourish your cells.
Balances Hormones and Cholesterol
Vitamin E can play a crucial role in balancing your endocrine and nervous systems, naturally working to balance hormones naturally. Symptoms of a hormonal imbalance may include PMS, weight gain, allergies, urinary tract infections, changes in the skin, anxiety and fatigue. By keeping your hormones in balance, you will find it easier to maintain a healthy weight, keep a regular menstrual cycle and find yourself feeling more energetic.
Cholesterol is a naturally occurring substance made by the liver and required by the body for the proper function of your cells, nerves and hormones. When cholesterol levels are in their natural state, they’re balanced, normal and healthy. When cholesterol oxidizes, it becomes dangerous. Studies have shown that certain isomers of vitamin E serve as a protective antioxidant that fights cholesterol oxidation. (1) This is because they can fight free radical damage in the body, which leads to cholesterol oxidation.
The following foods provide some the best sources of vitamin E, in fact, you could whip up a delicious raw salad including all of these ingredients:
