Vitamin E

Vitamin E is a naturally occurring nutrient and is a blanket term in reference to 4 tocopherols and 4 tocotrienols.  It is a fat-soluble antioxidant which is very important in protecting the bodies cell membranes from being damaged by free radicals.   Also, it is necessary for the maintenance of the muscle, cardiac, and skeletal parts of the body; while assisting the formation of red blood cells, and the storage of other vitamins and minerals, especially iron and selenium.

  1. Heart disease:  Studies have shown that populations that get in enough Vitamin E have less risk for heart disease.
  2. Cancer:  Population studies have shown that those groups that eat more foods with Vitamin E and other antioxidants have lower amounts of cancer.  Furthermore, those with existing cancer have been shown to have lower levels of this vitamin.
  3. Alzheimer Disease:  Studies found that people who got in ample Vitamin E were less likely to develop this disease.
  4. Eyes:  Vitamin E has been shown to protect the eyes against age-related blindness, and also can treat inflammation of the uvea.
  5. Diabetes:  There is a pattern of nutrition deficiencies with diabetics, and Vitamin E has been shown to help control blood sugar levels, and lower cholesterol in those with type 2 diabetes.
  6. Arthritis:  Studies have shown that Vitamin E helps reduce pain associated with rheumatoid arthritis, which  makes it a good addition to any joint support stack.

How to get it

There are plenty of foods that have Vitamin E.  The most well known for this is sunflower seeds, and you will probably see this advertised on the packages.    Vitamin E is also found in ample amounts in green leafy vegetables like spinach, swiss chard, mustard greens, turnip greens, and kale.  Nuts, like almond and peanuts, have it too; and some fruits like avocado, tomato, and berries are good sources.

Although deficiency isn't considered common, the American diet is so full of processed foods that amazingly those foods listed above can be very rarely eaten by people.  For this reason supplementing is a good idea to make sure you are getting enough.

Side effects

If used correctly side effects are very rare.


You should already be eating a balanced diet which would have plenty of Vitamin E.  When supplementing always use an amount of 25-100 IU's per day, as part of your support stack as a backup.

Where to find

N2joint rx contains 50IU's of Vitamin E per serving, plus dozens of additional ingredients.  It's great as a joint support supplement and mineral stack.  I use it daily for my joints and love the results.  What you use is up to you, just do your research.
