The latest I heard about Vitamin E was about a study done with Almonds that they are not only high in Vitamin E but they have prebiotic properties as well. Prebiotic properties improved your digestive health by increasing gut bacteria (good bacteria) which lowers bad bacteria and aids in digestion. Vitamin E is an anti-oxide which helps lower cholesterol and helps lower 'free-racials'(substances that cause cancer) in our bodies. It is a fat-soluble vitamin so we need to take only the recommend doses. The body is not able to get rid it and become toxic in very high doses. That will happen with any fat-soluble vitamin.
