Why You Should Supplement With Kosher Vitamin E Oil

Vitamin E is a fat-soluble vitamin. It works as both a nutrient and an antioxidant. As an antioxidant it protects our cells from the damage of free radicals and may help ward off cancer. Vitamin E supports our immune functions, promotes a healthy heart, and helps our blood vessels remain smooth. It’s also rather famous for its role in treating skin issues.

Vitamin E supplements have been shown to improve the symptoms of eczema like skin dryness, itching, and flaking. If you’ve been suffering from eczema flares, try pairing kosher Vitamin E oil with oil of oregano. Oil of oregano is a strong antimicrobial and inhibits the growth of viruses, bacteria, fungus, and candida, which can aggravate eczema. Both oils together pack a powerful punch against skin problems.

To treat eczema from the inside out, take 3 drops of kosher Vitamin E oil and 2-4 drops of oil of oregano orally each day. If you find the flavors too strong, take with liquids or a meal.

These two oils can also be used topically against eczema. Blend 4 drops each of oil of oregano and kosher Vitamin E oil and apply to your skin daily.


How and Why Vitamin E Works by Herbert Bailey

“What Vitamin E is, why it has such an almost unlimited capacity to affect a number of maladies which afflict all of us, from the unborn—to the old-age.

1. Vitamin E is an oil-soluble vitamin, like vitamins A, D, and K. It is found ‘in the liver and all other organs, such as the heart. Milk and eggs also contain it. Grains are a source and, to a much lesser degree, some leafy vegetables. Blood also has’ Vitamin E, depending, of course, upon the level of E in the individual.

2. It has been established that Vitamin E is a natural antioxidant and, therefore, an oxygen conservator. (Vitamin C is also to a lesser degree, in addition to possessing many other properties, as does E.) This means that Vitamin E prevents the oxidative processes of polyunsaturated fats, thus stopping the process which turns cells ‘‘rancid,’’ leading to their hasty death. The cells’ death, of course, contributes significantly to our own demise since almost all disease begins at the molecular or cellular level, including the brain, heart, blood, skin, bones, and just about every other constituent of that creature we call human. Recent studies show also that Vitamin E almost certainly plays a very important role in the ‘‘immune’’ as well as the ‘’autoimmune” processes.

3. Vitamin E is also a vasodilator. This means that it opens up the blood vessels, even the all-important tiny capillaries, which “feed’’ every cell in the body, including naturally the heart, brain, and all the other vital organs. It is providing more food—in the form of blood—with less strain, particularly if the vessels are clogged with fatty deposits (atherosclerosis) or calcium deposits which are associated with “hardening’’ of the arteries. Either or both produce

almost the same symptoms and usually result in heart attacks or strokes, in addition to a multitude of other accompanying ailments.

4. Vitamin E is the only known agent to prevent “plaques’’ from forming and depositing their deadly cargoes of LDL cholesterol inside the arterial walls, thereby blocking the blood flow to the heart. Vitamin E accomplishes this astonishing feat by ‘‘oxidizing’’ the LDL before it can even form plaques, thus, of course preventing most heart attacks and cerebral strokes.

5. Vitamin E protects red blood cells from aging. In classic experiments, several researchers found that not only in every species of animal studied, but in man himself, red blood cells lived longer when extra Vitamin E was supplied. Perhaps this finding was initiated by the astronauts, many of whom came back from their celestial journeys suffering from severe anemia caused by destruction of ted blood cells. This condition was not caused by lack of proper food, but by lack of sufficient Vitamin E, related to their living in a weightless environment for a long period and breathing pure oxygen for days with little exertion.When they received extra amounts of Vitamin E and adjusted the oxygen-nitrogen ratio, the anemia vanished promptly. This should have made headlines and been on every newscast, but instead buried in medical journals. Reason? The Medical Establishment, of course, which didn’t want Vitamin E extolled for anything. The late professor David Turner received a NASA award for explaining the cause and cure of the ‘‘space’’ anemia.

6. Vitamin E is a safe, effective anticoagulant (blood clot preventive and dissolver). For almost two and one-- half decades, the famed Dr. Alton Ochsner, first at Tulane Medical School and then later at his own clinic, routinely administered Vitamin E prior to surgery. The results were amazing. The death rate from clotting dropped phenomenally.”

ACV - A Work of Genius

All vinegars go through the same fermentation process, however, not all vinegars are created equal. The chemistry behind vinegar is a conversion from ethanol, the alcohol fuel distilled from plant materials, into acetic acid. The key to a vinegar’s place on the pantry shelf, is the fruit, vegetable, grain or sugar. That ingredient determines the vinegar’s ultimate flavor, uses and benefits.

For all intents and purposes, apple cider vinegar (ACV) should be a staple pantry item in the kitchen. The oils, grains and flours, spices, and stock you use to cook and bake, should be complemented by a bottle of Mother Nature’s Essentials ACV. From breakfast, lunch and dinner, to snacks cocktails and even an entire summer barbecue, ACV will enhance the flavors of all your culinary delights.   

Apple cider vinegar is hands down a healthy and delicious work of genius. Here are some of our favorite recipes using ACV, along with some surprising ACV baking hacks to keep handy. For all your cooking or baking, ACV even compliments Paleo, Vegan, and Vegetarian diets!

Breakfast is Served!

For many, breakfast is the most important meal of the day. A high protein breakfast can fuel the body and kickstart a busy work day with a jam packed to-do list. ACV can help make your mornings come alive with flavor and great health benefits.

Egg Substitute? - Yes, ACV can be used as an egg substitute. If you're sensitive to eggs, or if you prefer a more vegan-inspired diet, ACV has you covered. For cakes, cupcakes, breads and even pancakes, simply substitute 1 egg with 1 tablespoon of ACV and 1 teaspoon of baking soda.

Soured Plant Milk! - Well, this doesn’t seem appetizing! When ACV is added to a favorite plant milk, the reactive properties “curdle” the milk. Pour 2 tablespoons of ACV into a cup, then add 1 cup of Almond, Oat, Soy or Coconut milk. Let the mixture rest at room temperature for at least 5 minutes. The thick, creamy cottage cheese-like result is similar to buttermilk, and is a great substitute for any recipe that calls for dairy!

Preheat the Oven!
