Pros: Vitamin E capsules have given me more energy, and improved my skin as a bonus.
Since I turned forty I started getting more aches and pains, and felt a loss of energy. I kept reading and hearing that Vitamin E could prevent heart disease and as an Antioxidant, could be considered the anti-aging vitamin. So, I felt I should give it a try. I now take 400 International Units, in capsule form, every day. Make sure you use the all natural Vitamin E, not synthetic, as it is supposed to make a difference.
I have read expert opinions that say most vitamins and minerals need to be in your system for 2-3 months before you feel their effects. Well, I have taken the Vitamin E regularly for 5 months now, and I can't say there has been any dramatic effects from them, but I do feel more energy lately. But, the one really noticeable benefit, remarkably, my skin condition has improved, especially the pores around my nose and cheeks, which have decreased to almost invisible. My face has a rosier, healthy glow, that others have noticed. This was a bonus.
Vitamin E, the 400 I.U. capsules that I use, can be expensive. I only buy the natural Vitamin E capsules, which are more expensive, and I can pay from $12 to $14 for 100 capsules.
With my doctor's knowledge, I will continue to take the Vitamin E religiously as preventative medicine. It makes me feel like I am taking charge of my health for the future. They say it might even prevent Alzheimer's Disease.
