Vitamins are essential for health in general and men in particular. Will focus more on the value of vitamin E. Vitamin E is the common name for a group of biologically active compounds-antioxidants. It prevents cell damage caused by oxidation of polyunsaturated fatty acids in cell membranes. Roughly speaking, this is – the defender of the cell.
Due to this property it slows down the aging process, reduces the risk diseases associated with the formation of free radicals (the active compounds occurring in the metabolic process and are able to cause an excess of dangerous diseases), including some forms of cancer, stroke, heart disease, atherosclerosis. Since a number of factors trigger an increase in free radicals in the body (smoking, adverse environment, disease, ultraviolet radiation, and high electromagnetic Conventional background), the growing need of the organism and antioxidants. Also, vitamin E provides extra protection against bacteria. It is therefore understandable that a healthy cell, clean the body – the basis of health, including and male. Adverse factors that encourage the growth of free radicals, we have plenty, so supplementation of vitamin E and improved status.
Now the main thing on my mind in the application of vitamin E – doses and sources. How much vitamin E? The recommended daily dose ranges from 2 to 15 mg depending on age, weight, sex and country (in different countries have different recommendations). vitamin deficiency leads to damage to the nervous system (brain cells destroyed in the first place as we know). In prophylactic treatment, many recommend increasing the daily dose of vitamin E up to 75-300 mg, ie several times, ten times more. Such a dose may get only eating vitamin E. But is it worth it then? Do not stand behind it the producers of dietary supplements and pharmaceuticals. Maybe. In my opinion, much more appropriate to reconstruct their diet to vitamin E was in abundance, especially completely natural sources. First – this vegetable oils (olive, corn, sunflower, etc.). Not accidentally, many manufacturers take you directly to the label “contains vitamin E”. if anyone was interested in folk health methods, many of them contain this recipe as a method on an empty stomach or vegetable oil alone or with something together. That vitamin E and is the old way. To the extent a nice big spoon containing 3 mg Vitamin E – by Western standards almost daily rate for adult women. So try to switch to vegetable oils. Note that the country’s traditionally high consumption of vegetable oils (Italy, Greece, France and etc.) are less common cardiovascular diseases. Yes men and healthier than the country, pressed on animal fat. The same is true in the case of Russia – in the South of Russia in many families it is a vegetable oil base nutrition and better health and longer life expectancy. In addition to vegetable oils and their sources (sunflower, olive, peanut, almond, etc.), vitamin E is also found in wheat germ, whole grain cereals, etc. In short – it is available in its natural state. I would also like to note that vitamin E alone is not a panacea for the diseases that would not talk about its wonderful properties of the distributors of dietary supplements. He just improves the overall background, struggling with the negative factors, the disease he can not win and therefore should be used in combination with other drugs. The same applies to the treatment of prostatitis, herpes and impotence. On a diet in prostatitis and adenoma, I wrote many times before.
