To call Vitamin E a scavenger would actually be a complement. Like a hungry Pac-Man moving through a digital maze, hungry for dots, power pellets and blue ghosts, Vitamin E moves through the human body hungry to ingest free-radicals and protect cell membranes and important strands of DNA which make up who we are!

The potential benefits of Vitamin E vary widely. Mother Nature’s Essentials understands the importance of sourcing a 100% edible plant-based Vitamin E that nourishes and defends. Procuring raw material sources and produced in North America, the Mother Nature’s Essentials final Vitamin E product is a wonderful full-spectrum natural Vitami日本藤素
n E oil with a combination of all 4 naturally occurring tocotrienol chemicals: alpha, beta, delta and gamma.

Working together, these 4 tocotrienols help to maintain good health for the mind and body, minimize scars and stretchmarks, moisturize the skin, help with inflammation and itching caused by certain types of dermatitis, prevent fine lines and wrinkles, and make fingernails and toenails smoother and healthier.

Vitamin E is Delicious     

There are numerous ways to get Vitamin E into your body simply by eating! Nice! On the next run to the grocery store, pick up a bag of sunflower seeds or almonds. A 1- ounce handful has about 49% of the recommended dietary allowance (RDA*) of Vitamin E.

Do you need to be better about eating your greens? Grab some kiwis, fresh spinach and a couple of avocados. Half an avocado has about 2.08mg of Vitamin E. The RDA is 15mg. Next time you make a bowl of guacamol-E, you’ve got your Vitamin E covered for the day and you’ll be dipping healthy! Grill or bake some Salmon steaks. They’re packed full of Vitamin E, and offer around 35% of the RDA.   

There is another great way to get the daily RDA of essential Vitamin E. Reap the wonderful benefits of Mother Nature’s Essential Vitamin E oil. Gently massage it into your skin, pat some delicately around the corner of your eyes before bedtime. Add it to your favorite moisturizer, put 3 drops in your morning OJ, refreshing beverage at lunch or a glass of water. And swirl a few drops in your morning yogurt or oven-baked granola.

I Can’t Eat That…  

Think of an apple for a moment. The beautiful shiny red skin covering the fruit acts as a protector. Once the skin is peeled away, or the apple is cut into wedges, the tender fresh fruit is exposed to oxygen. You say to yourself, “Oh, that apple is bad, I can’t eat that. On the contrary, it’s still a juicy delicious apple.

Immediately free radicals swirling about in the environment expose themselves to the flesh of the apple. Immediately, positively charged oxygen atoms and negatively charged electrons go into a Speed Dating frenzy. The more free radicals that form, the more the apple starts to brown and oxidize. Try this simple experiment.

Rub a drop or two of Mother Nature’s Essentials Vitamin E Oil on the side of one slice. Come back an hour later and see which side of the apple slice is more oxidized. The reason Vitamin E keeps one side of the apple slice looking more fresh is because Vitamin E is a Tocopherol. That’s the fancy name for an antioxidant that is fat-soluble. And any antioxidant functioning in the body, is working to protect cells and keep them healthy. It’s okay, eat the apple even if it’s oxidized.     

Most metals, like sodium, magnesium and iron fall victim to oxidation. Rust on the car and the steam holes in the clothes iron react from chemical build up, the bottom of the tea kettle gets scaly from mineral deposits, and all fruits and vegetables oxidize from exposure to oxygen mixing with free radicals. It’s the stuff of science.

How Do You Take It?

Whether Vitamin E is taken as a capsule or liquid supplement, it goes straight to work inside the body in so many beneficial ways. For one, it works similarly as it does when it’s “photo protecting” the skin from damaging UV rays. Imagine your body’s daily exposure to things such as prescription drugs, pesticides, pollutants, cleaning supplies, preservatives and cigarette smoke. These types of manmade products and by-products  straight up forms of free-radicals! In the same way UV light uses unstable oxygen molecules to destroy healthy skin cells, unstable oxygen molecules traveling in the body are searching for trouble.

When an oxygen molecule breaks in half, to form a single atom, it should naturally want to pair up with two electrons. 1 positive and 2 negative charges, inside the atom, stabilize one another and make for a healthy relationship.

The goal is for all the atoms (hydrogen, carbon, oxygen) and electrons (the negatively charged particles that create balance in the atom) to pair up in the body and play nice. But, if a single oxygen atom pairs with a wandering single electron, free radicals are formed and start to destabilize healthy atoms, or links in DNA proteins. Too many free radicals can lead to oxidative damage to cells, tissues and organs.

The Takeaway

The takeaway is this: a disproportionate amount of free radicals to antioxidants in the body can cause all types of stress-related issues, including, but not limited to, chronic fatigue, asthma, diabetes and high blood pressure. Finding the right balance includes a healthy diet and lifestyle, being aware of the environmental impact on your mind and body, and incorporating free radical fighting Vitamin E as a part of your daily routine!

Your skin is the largest organ on your body. It’s temperamental and sensitive. It can overproduce oil, and boom: ACNE! When skin lacks hydration, it becomes dry as a desert. We’ve shown you how Vitamin E works on the inside. Now, we’ll take you on a journey and show you how Mother Nature’s Vitamin E can be an essential part of your beauty routine, and help keep you looking healthy on the outside.
