Vitamin E supplements, Bio-E-Vitamin from Pharma Nord contributes to the protection of body cell constituents from oxidative stress. Being major fat-soluble antioxidant, vitamin E protects cell membranes from damage caused by free radicals. Free radicals are unwanted by-products of normal cellular metabolism and are also generated by exposure to environmental pollutants.
Vitamin E is primarily found in vegetables. Another food item with high vitamin E content is liver. Deep-freezing causes the vitamin E content in food to lose its effects.

Are you Vitamin E deficient?
Since many of the best dietary sources of vitamin E are foods associated with a high fat content, individuals on low fat diets are recommended to obtain their vitamin E requirement via dietary supplements.
Levels of vitamin E are reduced by smoking and drinking alcohol, and decline with age. Diets containing a high proportion of fish oils or polyunsaturated fatty acids may result in deficient vitamin E absorption.
What is the best form of Vitamin E to take?
Vitamin E (natural or synthetic) can occur in different chemical forms (principally alpha-, beta-, delta- and gamma tocopherols), which have different biological activity; the most effective form of vitamin E utilized by the human body is d-alpha-tocopherol.
Pharma Nord Bio-E-Vitamin contains 200 IU (134mg) of d-alpha-tocopherol.
How much should you take?
Pharma Nord recommends 1 capsule to be taken per day, or as directed by a physician.
