This vitamin is one of the most powerful Antioxidants that will minimize damage and speed recovery. Vitamin E is an essential vitamin- in that our bodies cannot produce it naturally and must obtain it from our diet. There are eight different forms of Vitamin E that are divided into two groups: Tocopherols and Tocotrienols. The former is the best form to look for known as Alpha- Tocopherol. When looking for a Vitamin E supplement, look for one that has all of the Tocopherols plus all of the Tocotrienols -Vitamin E Complex.
