VITAMIN E FOR PILATES

Vitamin E is the common name for a group of fat-soluble substances known as tocopherols and tocotrienols.

There are four main types of each: alpha, beta, delta and gamma. The most potent form of vitamin E is natural d – alpha and d-gamma tocopherol and tocotrienol. Numerous types of vitamin E supplements are available, but to be sure that it is natural vitamin E, the label must read: d-alpha tocopherol or tocotrienol.

1. CIRCULATORY SYSTEM

Vitamin E assists blood circulation by enlarging blood vessels and arteries which provide both oxygen and nourishment to all body cells. Vitamin E (tocotrienols in particular) lowers blood cholesterol.

10. CELLULAR SYSTEM

Every cell in the body lives by burning up oxygen to produce energy and warmth.

Vitamin E regulates this action and prevents cells from burning out too quickly. The normal life of a healthy red blood cell is 120 days; a deficiency of vitamin E can reduce cell life to 70 days.

Vitamin E improves the number, activity and potency of the male sperm cells. Vitamin E preserves the walls of the red blood cells and prevents their destruction from oxidative stress.

Vitamin E is also essential for the transfer of cellular information within cells and to other cells. As vitamin E is fat soluble, it links to fat membranes within and outside cells to protect against oxidation, thereby promoting life and gaining the title of the anti-ageing vitamin.

3. GLANDULAR SYSTEM

Vitamin E promotes the function of the pituitary and adrenal glands in the production of hormones.

5. MUSCULAR SYSTEM

Vitamin E increases the power and activity of muscles and improves their endurance by increasing the supply of oxygen and the lifespan of muscular cells. Vitamin E strengthens the heart muscles.

7. RESPIRATORY SYSTEM

Vitamin E strengthens the heart muscles. Vitamin E protects the lungs from pollution, due to the powerful antiperoxidase action of tocopherols and tocotrienols, in combination with vitamin C, selenium and B3.

2. DIGESTIVE SYSTEM

Vitamin E helps regulate the body’s use of fats and protein from the daily diet. The common daily use of margarine and polyunsaturated fats greatly increases the need for vitamin E. Low vitamin E levels may lead to diseases of the pancreas, gall bladder, liver and bladder, nervous disorders and coeliac disease.

16. REPRODUCTIVE SYSTEM

Vitamin E promotes the activity of the ovaries and assists the body with normal menstruation.

Vitamin E promotes blood supply to the unborn baby. It improves the potency of the male sperm cell and it is vital for normal fertility in both male and female.

The synthetic female hormone oestrogen is a vitamin E antagonist.

The name tocopherol is derived from the Greek words tocos, meaning ‘childbirth’, andpherin, meaning ‘to bring forth’.

17. SKIN SYSTEM

Natural vitamin E foods protect the skin from ultraviolet radiation from sunlight and also promote the healing of burns and damaged skin tissues.
