(NaturalNews) Vitamin E has many therapeutic properties. It can be used topically and ingested. It is available in a capsule for easier ingestion or in an oil. Vitamin E oil can be swallowed or applied to the skin. Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that is essential for several basic bodily functions.

It can be found in many foods such as cooking oils, like safflower, sunflower, and wheat germ oils. It can also be found in almonds, hazelnuts, and certain leafy green vegetables. Vitamin E is believed to help delay or prevent heart disease and some types of cancer.

Vitamin E as an antioxidant helps protect the body against stroke, cataracts, cancer, heart disease, and even the signs of aging. Vitamin E actually protects the walls of the arteries. It prevents bad cholesterol (LDL) from being oxidized, preventing clogged arteries. Vitamin E can also prevent platelets from clumping together and forming blood clots. This can help prevent a stroke or heart attack.

Vitamin E can also help prevent or fight cancer. It protects the cell's DNA from damage that can cause the cells to turn cancerous. It can actually reduce the rate of growth for tumors, at the same time enhancing the immune system to fight cancer. Vitamin E capsules can even help enhance the action of insulin. This improves blood glucose function in diabetes.

It is also pivotal in the proper function of the brain. It protects the myelin sheaths that surround neurons in the brain. This can help prevent degeneration during the normal aging process. It may also help prevent Alzheimer's disease.

Used topically, vitamin E is used to heal and protect the skin. It protects the skin cells from damage including sun damage. It also boosts collagen in the skin. Collagen is what gives the skin its elasticity. Boosting collagen helps reduce wrinkles and gives the skin a more youthful appearance.

Vitamin E can also be used to reduce or clear scars on the skin, including acne scars. It is more effective when used soon after the scar is formed, but it can be used on older scars as well. Older scars may not see as much improvement, but it can provide some relief.

Vitamin E for scars can be found in special scar fading creams and gels or just vitamin E oil. It should be applied to clean skin at night, so it has time to soak into the skin to work.

Vitamin E can also help make the hair healthier and increase growth. It can be taken orally in a capsule to help hair health from the inside out. It can also be used in conditioners to improve the look of damaged hair.

Vitamin E has numerous health benefits. Getting enough vitamin E can help reduce diseases, reduce the signs of aging, and improve the hair and skin.
