There has been some talk about Vitamin E in the news lately, mostly related to the studies done on its effects on memory and function when dealing with Alzheimer’s. However, it is not just a supplement to prevent memory loss. Supplementation of Vitamin E is also thought to be effective for the treatment or prevention of cancer, PMS, liver disease, macular degeneration, and rheumatoid arthritis to name a few. It has also been shown to have great effect on the youthful appearance of skin when applied topically in an oil form. Typical dosing can be anywhere from as 65 IU per day up to 1000 IU per day depending on what you are wanting to utilize it for. Please check the recommended dosage. It is possible to overdose on Vitamin E, as it is a fat-soluble vitamin and doesn’t get washed out of your system like many other supplements do. So, if you are unsure ask your healthcare professional.
