Alzheimers Home > Vetemen E

Were you looking for information about Vitamin E? Vetemen E is a common misspelling of vitamin E.
 
Vitamin E is claimed to work for a wide variety of conditions, based mostly on its antioxidant activity. As an antioxidant, it helps prevent free radicals (damaging molecules or atoms that play a role in age-related conditions such as cardiovascular disease) from forming. Some types of vitamin E are more active than others; the natural form is said to be about twice as active as the synthetic form. Side effects of the vitamin supplements may include intestinal cramping, diarrhea, and nausea.
