Vitamin E is a subject that entire books can be written about. In my opinion it is also one of the most commercialized vitamins in the history of supplemental nutrition, and there is plenty of shame to go around. I cannot write a book for you today, but what i can do is tell you something you may have never heard before, and this information is quite valuable. Most vitamin e that you encounter on a shelf at a grocery store, or a drug store, is utterly incomplete. Has anyone ever mentioned to you that vitamin e has eight components? The vitamin e you see at the store usually has only one, and to make matters worse, it is often times man made vitamin e.
What i offer you in the short mention of vitamin e, is that vitamin e has four tocopherols and four tocotrienols. The supplement that i take has all eight components, and so should yours. Vitamin e is mission critical for healthy human cells, and all eight parts has it’s roll to play. More will be said about vitamin e in future posts, but read up on it. Never rely only on a website post for your information. Reading a book devoted to vitamin e, will change your life.
Retinol, which is a form of vitamin a, plays a critical role in cellular regeneration and defense against free radical damage. It helps to build collage to assist in healthy appearance by lowering the amount on lines and wrinkles to the skin on the body. It also helps defend against age spot, including those caused by the sun. Using a good quality retinol cream would go a long way towards rebuilding your cells each day, and of course finding a good oral vitamin a supplement makes sense as well. We have cells deep within our bodies that need daily attention as well. Always consider more than just website posts. Read as much as you can about cellular care. It really is worth your time.
Coenzyme Q10 is awesome for the skin and for human cell rebuilding. Topical CoQ10 has proven also to be very helpful because it has the ability to penetrate the layers of the skin and have very positive influence of cell repair, and the slowing down of the aging process. Taking the supplement orally had been touted as a heart healthy thing to do, after all our heart cells work all day at the mission critical task of serving nutrients to our entire system. Synergy is another thing to consider. CoQ10, plus vitamin e, a, c, so on, all work together on helping us to rebuild our cells on a daily basis. Reading up on the theories of antioxidants would be very helpful to you in your efforts to make decisions on what to take, and how to take supplements together.
Polyphenols play a role in assisting with inflammation. Polyphenols are plant substances that assist in, among other things, protecting cells from damage due to sun exposure. Plants phenols such as green tea, and grape seed, resveratrol, pine bark, and others have both antioxidant and anti inflammatory properties and also assist in cellular defense, and the slowing of the aging process. These nutrients can be taken orally, but you should consider a cream or lotion to use on those body parts that are most at risk via exposure each day.
One of my favorite vitamins for cellular defense and rebuilding, is timed released vitamin c. I once read that a vitamin c ion is used up each time the body creates a collagen molecule. I take vitamin c two times a day in an effort to make sure my body has such ions available should collagen molecule production be ongoing.
Always read, read, read. No better subject to read up on than that of staying alive. Cheers.
