What does vitamin E do in the body?
Vitamin E acts primarily as an antioxidant, protecting the body's cells from free radicals. In the body, there is a constant process of degradation and defence between free radicals and antioxidants. When free radicals get the upper hand, they cause oxidative stress, which damages our cells. When we lead unhealthy lifestyles, such as stress, smoking or excessive sunbathing, the release of free radicals increases. Vitamin E plays an important role in protecting the polyunsaturated fatty acids that make up our cell membranes from degradation. Thanks to its cell-protecting properties, vitamin E has been included in studies on age-related eye diseases.

Healthwell Vitamin E 200 IU contains natural vitamin E in the form of tocopherol acetate, which is the form that the body can absorb and which has been shown to counteract deficiency symptoms.
Can you overdose on vitamin E?
The natural form of vitamin E has low toxicity because the body can easily control how the vitamin is metabolised and stored. However, studies suggest that a high intake of vitamin E can cause side effects such as diarrhoea and nausea. The European Food Safety Authority, EFSA, therefore recommends a maximum daily intake of 300 mg of vitamin E per day for adults. Follow the dosage instructions on the package to avoid any side effects.
