A natural antioxidant, vitamin E is a key nutrient when it comes to cellular protection and ensuring a good level of general health and wellbeing.
Its main role is helping to protect cells from oxidative stress, which is caused by an excess of free radicals in the body. An increase in free radicals can be caused by many external factors, such as pollution, sun radiation or an unhealthy diet, but they are also generated during pregnancy.
In its role as an antioxidant, 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. That’s one less type of stress to worry about!
