1. vitamin E: daily requirement, overdose, symptoms of deficiency
Vitamin E is an essential vitamin for the human organism. Vitamin E belongs to the fat-soluble vitamins and is considered a scavenger of radicals. The vitamin is important for the formation of tissue mediators. These influence inflammatory reactions and blood formation. As a strong antioxidant, vitamin E protects the human organism from attacks by free radicals. These would otherwise destroy cell membranes, proteins and skin lipids. Without vitamin E, the skin would be wrinkled and weakened. In addition to the skin, vitamin E ensures the healthy growth of hair. By accelerating hair growth, hair becomes stronger and more manageable.
2. the daily requirement of vitamin E
The German Nutrition Society (DGE) recommends a daily dose of 12-15 mg of vitamin E for adults. For young children, the recommended amounts of vitamin E are lower. However, the daily dose increases if you do a lot of sport and are very active. The recommended daily intake of vitamin E for pregnant and lactating women is about.17 mg. In general, the daily vitamin E intake depends on many different factors: Age, gender, weight, height and metabolic situation.
