Were you looking for information about Vitamin E? Vitmain E is a common misspelling of vitamin E.
Vitamin E supplements are best known for their antioxidant activity. As an antioxidant, the vitamin helps prevent the formation of free radicals (which play a role in certain age-related conditions, such as cardiovascular disease and cancer). Some people may be more likely to experience problems due to vitamin E, so you should talk to your healthcare provider before using the supplement if you are pregnant, have a bleeding disorder, or have any allergies.
