Vitamin E is important for all-round health. Just as oxygen causes an apple to go brown when cut up, it also causes oxidation and the formation of ‘free radicals’ in our bodies. Vitamin E is our strongest defence against free radicals, and this is why it’s often referred to as an antioxidant. Vitamin E’s antioxidant properties may also reduce the risk of diseases such as heart disease and some types of cancers.
