Vitamin E as Vitamin E Succinate

E succinate is one of several forms of vitamin E, a fat-soluble vitamin that works as a very powerful antioxidant to protect our body from the damage caused by free radicals. Free radicals can damage cells, which can lead to cancer, cardiovascular disease, and accelerated aging. Vitamin E may prevent or delay chronic diseases.

Vitamin E can be found in wheat germ, almonds, spinach, mango, soybean, kiwifruit, corn, peanuts, hazelnuts, sunflower seeds, whole grains, fish, and green, leafy vegetables. Our body can absorb and utilize both natural and synthetic forms of vitamin E.
