    Vitamin E and its Many Benefits

    Vitamin E is a type of vitamin (an antioxidant) that occurs naturally in some foods. Available in supplement form and as oil, vitamin E oil has many beneficial uses other than that of just treating or preventing vitamin E deficiency. It is most known for use in skin treatments. Vitamin E oil provides antioxidants to protect one against the risks of free radicals, reduce the signs of ageing and replenish the vitamin in our body. You may easily puncture vitamin E capsules and squeeze out the liquid to use it just like the oil.
