Vitamin E supplements are commonly used for treating and preventing various medical conditions. As an antioxidant, this vitamin helps prevent the formation of damaging molecules or atoms (free radicals) that play a role in certain age-related conditions, such as cancer and cardiovascular disease. There are eight different types of vitamin E, some that are natural and some that are synthetic. While most people do not experience any problems while taking the supplements, potential side effects include cramping, weakness, and diarrhea.
