Vitamin E is a fat-soluble vitamin with an antioxidant effect. This vitamin protects the body cells, blood vessels, organs, eyes and tissue. In addition, vitamin E helps to regulate our metabolism in the cells.
Vitamin E occurs in different forms, called tocopherols. These tocopherols can be divided into alpha, beta, gamma and delta tocopherols. The most important form of vitamin E is the alpha tocopherol. This form is the easiest to be absorbed by the body.
A vitamin E deficiency rarely occurs. If you are eating a balanced diet, this will usually include a sufficient amount of vitamin E. However, if you are often exposed to harmful substances or if you are struggling with malabsorption, a deficiency may occur. You can supplement a deficiency by taking one of the dietary supplements that Optiphar offers. In our range you can find products from well-known brands such as Deba, Mannavital and Solgar.
