Signs Your Body Is Lacking Vitamin E & The Benefits

What if we told you there was a vitamin that
plays the role of an antioxidant, preventing free radical damage to specific fats in your
body that are crucial for your health and naturally slows aging? It’s true there is! We’re talking about vitamin E, and believe
it or not, vitamin E benefits don’t end there. Other benefits include treating and preventing
diseases of the heart and blood vessels, such as chest pain, high blood pressure, and blocked
or hardened arteries. A deficiency of Vitamin E can lead to conditions
like heart diseases, an eye disorder and even mental issues. So, it’s pretty important for your body
to have enough Vitamin E, but how can you tell if you are getting enough? Well, there are signs and symptoms of a Vitamin
E deficiency and in today’s video, we will tell you what these are. From losing your hair, dry flaky skin, eye
problems to hormonal imbalances and many more, stay tuned to hear about them all. Before we get into the actual symptoms let’s
talk about the health benefits of Vitamin E and why it is so important for you. Prevents Eye Disease: Vitamin E is integral
to eye health, aiding in the self-repair of the retina, cornea, and uvea which is the
pigmented portion of your eye. A study concluded that vitamin E supplementation
was associated with a reduced risk of age-related cataracts. Vitamin E supplements have been used to treat
an eye disorder in newborns known as retinopathy of prematurity. Balances Cholesterol: Cholesterol is a naturally
occurring substance made by the liver and required by the body for the proper function
of your cells, nerves and hormones. When cholesterol levels are in their natural
state, they’re balanced, normal and healthy. When cholesterol oxidizes, it becomes dangerous. Studies have shown that certain isomers of
vitamin E serve as a protective antioxidant that fights cholesterol oxidation. This is because they can fight free radical
damage in the body, which leads to cholesterol oxidation. Vitamin E can also positively impact your
cardiovascular health due to their ability to reduce activity of an enzyme that controls
cholesterol production. It can also slow down progression or hardening/thickening
of the arteries. It’s important to note synthetic vitamin
E doesn’t have the same benefits of natural forms. Repairs Damaged Skin: Vitamin E benefits skin
by strengthening the capillary walls and improving moisture and elasticity, acting as a natural
anti-aging nutrient within your body. Studies have shown that vitamin E reduces
inflammation both within your body and on your skin, helping maintain healthy, youthful
skin. These antioxidant properties are also helpful
when you’re exposed to cigarette smoke or ultraviolet rays from sunlight, protecting
against skin cancer. Taking vitamin E with vitamin C fights skin
inflammation after exposure to UV radiation and can also be useful in decreasing signs
of acne and eczema. It also helps the healing process of your
skin. It’s absorbed by the epidermis layer of
your skin and can be used to treat sunburns, which is one of the leading causes of skin
cancer, among other factors. Because it speeds up cell regeneration, it
can be used to treat scars, acne and wrinkles; this makes your skin look healthier and younger. Thickens Hair: Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant
which helps decrease environmental damage to your hair. It can also promote circulation to the scalp. Vitamin E oil can retain the natural moisture
in your skin, which helps your scalp from becoming dry and flakey. This oil also makes your hair look healthier
and fresher. You can apply a few drops of vitamin E oil
on your hair, especially if it looks dry and dull. Balances Hormones: Vitamin E can play a crucial
role in balancing your endocrine and nervous systems, naturally working to balance hormones. Symptoms of a hormonel imbalance may include
PMS, weight gain, allergies, urinary tract infections, changes in the skin, anxiety and
fatigue. By keeping your hormones in balance, you will
find it easier to maintain a healthy weight, keep a regular menstrual cycle and find yourself
feeling more energetic. Helps people with Alzheimer’s Disease: Research
shows that the anti-inflammatory activity of tocotrienols, which are a group of chemicals
that are part of the vitamin E family contribute to their protection against Alzheimer’s
disease. Vitamin E may slow down the worsening of memory
loss and functional decline in people with moderately severe Alzheimer’s disease or
other neurodegenerative disorders. It can also delay the loss of independence
and the need for a caregiver or assistance. Vitamin E, taken with vitamin C, can also
decrease the risk of developing several forms of dementia. Improves Physical Endurance and Muscle Strength:
Vitamin E can be used to improve your physical endurance. It can increase your energy and reduce the
level of oxidative stress on your muscles after you exercise. Vitamin E can also improve your muscle strength. It eliminates fatigue by promoting blood circulation
and can also strengthen your capillary walls and nourish your cells. Ok, So now that you know the health benefits,
let’s move on and talk about the signs of a Vitamin E deficiency: Impaired Immune Response: Vitamin E plays
a key role in proper function of your immune system. Vitamin E deficiency stunts the immune system
response to harmful agents that trigger sickness and disease. As such, if you have vitamin E deficiency,
you may become ill more often and experience longer durations of illness. Additionally, relative symptoms of illnesses
may be worse in those with a vitamin E deficiency. Loss of Muscle Mass: Bodybuilders have been
singing the health benefit praises of vitamin E for years. As it turns out, scientists and researchers
are in agreement with our bulkier counterparts. Specifically, muscle cells have a tendency
to tear, requiring an assortment of vitamins and nutrients to aid the healing process. Physiologically, vitamin E ensures that the
plasma membrane which is an essential component of muscle repair, remains intact. Nervous System Problems: Deficiency of Vitamin
E can cause nervous system related problems. This includes burning sensation, numbness,
tingling and pins and needles. It may also cause a loss of sensation in your
hands, feet, arms and legs. Vitamin E deficiency can cause poor balance
due to decreased muscular sense. You may be unable to do certain basic tests
like standing straight with a narrow base of support with your eyes closed. Poor Skin Health: Vitamin E protects your
skin against the harmful effects of ultraviolet rays of the sun. If you have a vitamin E deficiency, your skin
is more prone to damage. This can lead to an increased risk of acne,
blemishes and pigmentation. Lack of vitamin E further induces the possibility
of free radical attack, which makes the skin look dull and older. Fertility Problems: Vitamin E maintains the
health of the reproductive system. Its deficiency can lead to abortions, miscarriages
and infertility. Men can suffer from enlarged prostate, impotence
and the chance of becoming sterile. Babies who are born with a vitamin E deficiency
can have anemia with shiny skin, puffy eyes, firm legs, and low birth weight. Hair Loss: Vitamin E is vital for good blood
circulation. Good circulation feeds your scalp, hair follicles
and keeps them healthy. Its deficiency can cause hair loss. Vitamin E can be obtained from olive and canola
oil, soybeans, nuts and seeds. Cooked dried beans, kidney, pinto, garbanzo
and black beans are also sources of vitamin E. Vision Problems: If you are having problems
with your vision, it could mean that you are vitamin E deficient. Vitamin E has been shown to prevent, slow
progression of, or improve macular degeneration. Vitamin E deficiency weakens light receptors
in your retina and other cells in the eye. This can lead to vision deterioration and
possibly total vision loss over time. Muscle Weakness: Not only can deficient levels
of vitamin E result in loss of muscle mass, it can also cause your muscles to become frail. The physiological mechanisms that promote
muscle weakness is similar to muscle loss. Deficiency of E vitamins allows free radicals
to attack the innards of your muscle cells. Scientists have also discovered the links
between vitamin E and muscular dystrophy and diabetes-related muscle weakness. Cognitive Difficulties: Your brain is highly
sensitive to the effects of free radicals and oxidative stress. In advanced stages, a vitamin E deficiency
can directly impact basic cognitive functions. People that test for high vitamin E levels
often demonstrate better cognitive performance. Vitamin E has been shown to prevent or delay
cognitive decline which has been tested in clinical trials in both aging population and
Alzheimer’s disease patients. Ok, now that you know the symptoms of Vitamin
E deficiency, we will tell you how you can correct it. Diet: The best way you can correct Vitamin
E deficiency is through your diet by eating foods rich in Vitamin E. Some good sources
of Vitamin E include nuts and seeds, such as almonds, sunflower seeds, peanuts, and
peanut butter, whole grains, vegetable-based oils, especially olive and sunflower and Green
Leafy vegetables. Other food items that are a good source are
eggs, fortified cereals, kiwi and mango. Supplementation: Although taking supplements
is a popular way to add vitamins and minerals to your diet, you should be cautious about
taking vitamin E in supplement form. Supplements aren’t regulated by the U.S.
Food and Drug Administration, so it can be difficult to determine the quality of the
ingredients. It may be unclear what vitamin E you’re
getting. For example, some supplements only contain
one type of vitamin E. Your body needs other types found in various food sources. It’s always best to get your nutrients from
whole foods, rather than supplements. Concentrated supplements , not multivitamins,
can contain more vitamin E than you need. This may cause side effects and lead to further
complications. Even if you do purchase a supplement from
a reputable brand, there’s a chance that it can interfere with other medications that
you’re taking. Did you already know about Vitamin E Deficiency? Have you ever had a Vitamin Deficiency? Let us know in the comments section below.
