Alzheimers Home > Vitiman E

Were you looking for information about Vitamin E? Vitiman E is a common misspelling of vitamin E.
Vitamin E supplements are claimed to be useful for treating and preventing a number of different conditions. As an antioxidant, the vitamin helps prevent the formation of free radicals (damaging molecules or atoms that can start a chain reaction of cellular damage). Since some people may be more likely to experience problems due to vitamin E than others, you should talk to your healthcare provider before using these supplements if you have head or neck cancer, a bleeding disorder, or any allergies.
