Is Vitamin E Actually Good for My Skin?

Is vitamin E actually good for our skin? Luckily, it appears that my years of blindly using vitamin E products weren’t a waste, as the compound actually does have a beneficial effect on our skin.

Vitamin E – most of us aren’t getting enough

itamin E, known as tocopherol, comes in eight forms, but only one is retained by the human body: Alpha Tocopherol. The other seven are excreted by the liver. Depending on your weight and how much polyunsaturated fat you consume, the daily value (DV) as recommended by the US’s Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is 30IU.

Certified sustainable palm oil trusted as natural trans fat alternative

This up-and-coming oil is naturally trans fat-free, non-GMO and loaded with nutrients, qualities that are important to many of today’s shoppers.

What if there was a clean, nutrient-dense sweetener that could make your coffee taste like vanilla ice cream and make your skin glow—would you try it? Of course you would. Which is why when I first heard about tocos, the cool It supplement, I headed straight to Amazon and clicked “add to cart.”

Tocos? Yup, it’s kind of a weird name, and the first time you look it up, Google or autocorrect will be convinced that what you’re really trying to say is TACOS.

Children born to mothers with low vitamin E levels may be more likely to require asthma medications, according to data presented this week at the 2017 American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology (AAAAI) Annual Meeting in Atlanta, Georgia.

The study, from researchers at Vanderbilt and Northwestern University, followed 652 children and their mothers for the first 2 years of the child’s life. Researchers used post-pregnancy maternal samples to test mothers for 2 constituents, or isoforms, of vitamin E including alpha-tocopherol and gamma-tocopherol.
