Major Functions:

  • Provides cellular protection from harmful free radicals during oxidative damage
  • Ensures a good level of general health and wellbeing



Vitamin E is a natural antioxidant that helps to prevent an increase in free radicals which can be caused by many external factors, such as pollution, sun radiation, an unhealthy diet or during pregnancy. Vitamin E helps to counteract this process by restoring balance and protecting important cells (including proteins, lipids and even our DNA) against the damaging effects of free radicals.

Vitamin E also supports the development of the heart, skin, eyes, and the immune system of the foetus whilst helping in the prevention of complications such as pre-eclampsia and the baby being born small.
