Vitamin E is a fat-soluble vitamin most commonly used for its antioxidant effects. 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 heart disease and cancer). There are many different types of vitamin E, including the natural form (found in foods) and the synthetic form. Talk to your healthcare provider before taking this vitamin if you have a bleeding disorder, head or neck cancer, or any allergies.
