Were you looking for information about Vitamin E? Vitman E is a common misspelling of vitamin E.
Vitamin E has antioxidant effects that may be beneficial for treating and preventing a wide variety of conditions. Some people may be more likely to experience problems due to this type of supplement, so you should talk with your healthcare provider prior to taking the supplements if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, have head or neck cancer, or have any allergies. While high-dose vitamin E supplementation was once believed to be beneficial, it is now believed that high doses can cause more harm than good.
