Were you looking for information about Vitamin E? Vitamine E is a common misspelling of vitamin E.
 
Vitamin E provides antioxidant activity that can be useful for preventing and treating numerous conditions. For example, it can help prevent the formation of free radicals, which are damaging molecules or atoms that play a role in various age-related conditions, such as cancer and heart disease.
 
While vitamin E may provide many health benefits, taking high doses of it may actually cause more harm than good. Overdose symptoms may include stomach pain, weakness, and nausea. A long-term overdose can also increase your risk of bleeding, which could result in dangerous internal bleeding.
