Myra 400E

Consumers today are getting more and more conscious with the products they use. The ‘naturals’ story is not just a fad, but a trend. It’s a global trend because people are more aware that what they consume have long term effects to their body and the environment. That’s why there are a lot of products highlighting that they are of natural source.

But does it actually count for something? Does it really matter? Its pros and cons differ from product to product.

But with Vitamin E, natural is better.

Vitamin E is a popular antioxidant. But what does it exactly do? Why do we need it?

There are numerous Vitamin E brands out there promising different things. But what we need to understand is that how it works in the body and how we benefit from it.

Before we get into how Vitamin E works, we must first understand the concept of free radicals. Free radicals damage molecules and the cells they belong to, causing not only aging and wrinkles, but also cancer, heart disease, stroke and other chronic diseases. Free radicals are naturally produced by the body but they also come from pollution, sun exposure, cigarette smoke and stress.

Vitamin E protects and keeps our cells healthy by destroying cell-damaging free radicals. Healthy cells equals to a healthy body. Aside from keeping the skin healthy and help prevent the appearance of fine lines, skin dryness and wrinkles. They also help prevent chronic diseases linked to free-radicals such as cancer, heart disease, Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease.

Because our bodies naturally produce free radicals and we are almost always exposed to the sun, pollution, cigarette smoke or stress, there is probably numerous amounts of free radicals in our bodies. We have to be sure we have enough Vitamin E to fight these free radicals.

Fortunately, there are vitamin E supplements available in the market to make it convenient for those who are not getting enough vitamin E from their diet. There are natural Vitamin E supplements and it is best to choose natural types vs. synthetic ones. Natural vitamin E is more bioavailable vs. Synthetic vitamin E. This means it is absorbed easily and stays longer in the body. Natural vitamin E may seem a little more expensive, however, since it is better absorbed by the body, there is less waste. The liver recycles natural vitamin E and excretes synthetic forms. Some studies show that you will have to take twice as much synthetic vitamin E to get the same levels in your body you would get from natural vitamin E. You may be buying synthetic vitamin e which will mostly be excreted by the liver.

Vitamin E supplements either start with “d” or “dl”. When it starts with “dl”, it means it’s a synthetic form of vitamin E. When it starts “d” like d-Alpha Tocopherol, it means that it is natural form of vitamin E. Myra is a brand of Vitamin E that is from soybean oil, which is a natural source of Vitamin E.

With vitamin E, the natural story counts. Check the label and choose the natural vitamin E.
