The effects of vitamin E on the body.
Vitamin E helps hydrate the skin and stimulates fertility. In addition, the immune system is very well supported by vitamin E. It is a found fact that in people who have a low level of vitamin E, the immune system is affected and therefore they get sick more often. European experts say that supplementing with vitamin E through natural foods or capsules restores the function of the immune system fairly quickly. This conclusion is especially important for people suffering from diseases due to their weakened immune systems.
