Vitamin E

This vitamin is one of the most important natural antioxidants readily available and slows down aging, strengthens your heart, promotes a healthy circulatory system by preventing the formation of dangerous blood clots and heals wounds. Here's a cool metaphor about a wrench for you to think about. Given favorable conditions, oxidation will turn a shiny metal wrench into an ugly, rusted wrench very quickly. Our bodies, of course, don't rust, but under the right circumstances, oxidative damage produces the kind of accelerated wear and tear that may lead to premature aging, lowered resistance, cancer and heart disease. Fortunately, nature has provided us with a way of slowing down such reactions. Cells and tissues are protected against oxidation in a variety of ways, but perhaps the most important are substances called antioxidants (vitamin E comes to the rescue)! Tests reveal that vitamin E may help preserve cell membranes, letting various healthful substances into cells while letting wastes escape. Very simply, vitamin E will help you heal and stay well protected.
