Many people use vitamin E for its antioxidant effects. As an antioxidant, the fat-soluble vitamin helps prevent the formation of free radicals (damaging atoms or molecules that play a role in various age-related conditions, such as cardiovascular disease and cancer). While vitamin E supplements may be effective for preventing or treating certain conditions, there is some controversy about a few of these uses. Potential side effects include diarrhea, abdominal cramping, and fatigue.
