Vitamin E - Everything you need to know

In the following, we clarify everything important about vitamin E. What the benefits of taking it are, how much vitamin E everyone should take and much more. Did you know that vitamin E protects you from free radicals and is considered a wound-healing agent in the cosmetics industry?

What is vitamin E?

Vitamin E belongs to the group of fat-soluble vitamins (like vitamins A, D and K, among others). The most common form of vitamin E is called tocopherol, of which alpha-tocopherol is probably the best known. In addition, vitamin E is an important component of the membranes of almost all animal cells.

What foods contain vitamin E?

Vitamin E can also be absorbed through a balanced diet. Vegetable oils, such as canola oil or olive oil, are considered rich in vitamin E. But other foods like avocado, flaxseed, asparagus, spinach, sweet potatoes and various nuts can also provide you with vitamin E.

But many of our bears also contain vitamin E—for example, the Bootylicious SHAPE Vitamins, One Bear A DAY Vitamins or Beach Guard SUN Vitamins.

What are the benefits of taking vitamin E?

Vitamin E is one of the most important antioxidants because it protects cells from oxidative stress, the so-called free radicals. This means that your cells are protected from UV rays, exhaust fumes and other harmful factors. 

According to studies, vitamin E has other positive effects on health. It can reduce inflammation and prevent diseases such as arteriosclerosis and even cancer

Vitamin E also has many positive effects on the skin. It protects against UV rays and thus prevents premature ageing of the skin. It also has an anti-inflammatory effect and is used in the cosmetics industry as a wound-healing agent

If you are well supplied with vitamin E, your hair can also benefit from it because it supports hair growth and strengthens brittle hair.


"You can actually call vitamin E the cell protection vitamin because of its antioxidant effect; it can protect the cells from oxidative stress. Therefore, the intake of vitamin E is particularly important, and I can only recommend it to everyone."
