Vitamin E is a fat soluble Vitamin, most commonly found in nuts, seeds, vegetable oils and green leafy vegetables. It is often used as a natural preservative, as it works as an antioxidant – protecting against oxidative stress.
Oxidative stress is the damage which can be caused by free radicals, which are created by frying food, drinking alcohol and smoking, even pollution is associated with oxidative stress. Vitamin E can help to protect the cells of the body against oxidative stress.
