6 Benefits of Vitamin E You Didn't Know About

Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant and a vital nutrient that your body needs to function at its best. Best known for its skin health benefits, it's a popular ingredient in many skin care products. But there are many other reasons to get enough vitamin E. Here are 6 benefits of vitamin E you may not have known about.

1. Heart health

As an antioxidant, Vitamin E has protective benefits for heart health1. Vitamin E helps maintain a normal inflammation response2 and plays a vital role in protecting against the oxidation of fats (lipid peroxidation) such as cholesterol, helping to protect blood vessel health and support healthy endothelial function3.

2. Memory

Studies show that vitamin E may help support memory and cognitive performance as you age. The brain is highly susceptible to oxidative stress, and vitamin E’s antioxidant properties offer a protective effect. Oxidative stress increases with age and results in memory loss and other signs of brain aging.

Studies show that low vitamin E levels are linked with poor memory, while optimal vitamin E levels are linked with healthy brain function in the elderly4. Research shows that those who get less than 50% of the recommended daily amount of vitamin E perform cognitively worse than those with higher intake5.

3. Liver health

Optimal levels of vitamin E may offer protective effects to the liver. Studies show that vitamin E helps improve liver health for those with excess fat buildup in the liver6.

4. Hair growth

A 2010 study demonstrated that supplementation with vitamin E (as tocotrienols) increased hair growth in volunteers suffering from hair loss7. Researchers suggest that vitamin E’s antioxidant effects helps reduce fat oxidation and stress in the scalp, resulting in better hair growth.

5. Skin

Vitamin E is a helpful tool against sun damage and other forms of oxidative stress resulting in signs of premature aging. Vitamin E helps restore the skin’s natural oil balance and keeps it nourished to reduce dryness and damage.

6. Eye Health

Vitamin E helps reduce oxidative stress that can cause damage to the delicate cells in the eye. Research shows that optimal levels of vitamin E can improve retinal blood flow,8 which may help with occasional dry eye discomfort.
