What are the properties of Vitamin E 400IU?
The main function of this essential vitamin is its antioxidant power. In other words, it helps to decrease the action of the free radicals. These substances are molecules that have no atomic balance because they are missing an electron. Therefore, they steal it from other cells from the tissues that make up the organism. This effect harms our cells and it can spread to other tissues.
Thanks to its properties, vitamin E can enhance the antioxidant action, supporting other vitamins which are also involved in antioxidant processes, like vitamin C.
Moreover, vitamin E can also help to preserve the health of the skin, particularly strengthening the capillary walls while improving the natural hydration and elasticity of this organ. That is why we can say it has anti-aging properties that slow down premature aging, making our skin look younger.
The absorption of vitamin E is improved when we take natural tocopherols, included in this product.

Vitamin is the main fat soluble antioxidant from the body. It works on the cell membranes, where it prevents the free radicals from spreading. (1)
