Antioxidants are popular supplements because they protect the health of every cell in the body from the free radicals that want to harm them. Fortunately, nature provides us with some powerful antioxidants in the form of vitamins and minerals. One of the most important antioxidant vitamins is Vitamin E. Vitamin E is a fat-soluble compound that compliments the antioxidant activities of water-soluble compounds such as Vitamin C. Vitamin E may be particularly helpful in neutralizing free radicals called reactive oxygen species (ROS) which comes from fats in our body. This is especially helpful for the cardiovascular system because the oxidation of fat-soluble LDL cholesterol may contribute to the development of cardiovascular disease. Vitamin E may also help support cardiovascular health because it may help encourage normal, healthy blood clotting. Our modern diets which are often limited in fresh, whole foods are generally low in Vitamin E, so taking a daily supplement may ensure we receive all the health benefits of this essential nutrient.
