Demand for vitamin E increases with the consumption of polyunsaturated fatty acids found, among others, in fish and vegetable oils.
It is worth to combine Vitamin E with selenium supplementation. The substances display synergistic activity.
Vitamin E (tocopherol) is a fat soluble. Due to its antioxidant action, it is a protection of other vitamins (e.g. Vitamins A). Protects the body against free radicals, strengthens the walls of blood vessels and its capacity, causing their dilation and dissolution of blood clots. With the reduction of coagulation, it is used as an antiatherogenic medicine, it allows for the proper course of pregnancy. In cooperation with selenium it slows the ageing process of cells, strengthening connective tissue. In the food it is present in whole-grain bread, sprout and grains, vegetable oils (soybean, sunflower), soya beans and sunflower seeds, vegetable fat and hen egg yolks. Also it is used in sports medicine in the form of nutrients and supplements.
Vitamin E deficiency reduces building of red blood cells, results in changes in muscle and disorders of pregnancies.
Dosage: for children, 0.5 mg / 1 kg of weight; for adults 10-30 mg per day.
D-alpha-tocopherol – a natural form of vitamin E which is indicated as the most optimum for supplementation. It helps correct effectively deficiencies of this compound which is extremely crucial for the human body.
Vitamin E is a very important bioactive substance found in many tissues and required for normal functioning of the body. Its deficiencies may be manifested by impaired cognitive abilities and vision, muscle weakness and infertility. It is involved in erythropoiesis and that is why its low intake may lead to anaemia.
In addition, vitamin E has an important role as an antioxidant in the human body. It has the ability to reduce the amount of free radicals, thereby decreasing negative oxidative stress.
During supplementation with d-alpha-tocopherol, we should remember that it belongs to fat-soluble compounds, along with vitamin A, D and K. Because of that, supplements with vitamin E should be taken with a fat-containing meal.
Phytosterols are components of plant cell membranes with a construction resembling the construction of cholesterol. This group includes over forty compounds (including beta-sitosterol, campesterol, sitosterol and stigmasterol). Due to their similarity to cholesterol, they bind to intestinal cell receptors and block the absorption in the intestine and facilitate the excretion of cholesterol outside of the organism. Phytosterols absorption by the body does not exceed 5% and the remainings are excreted out of the body without side effects. Besides reducing total cholesterol, phytosterols influence the blood lipid profile, i.e. stabilizes levels of LDL and HDL cholesterol. Provides the proper functioning of cell membranes (in a similar way to the functioning of the human hormones). The effect of phytosterols on the inhibition of prostate hyperplasia has been observed. The source of acquisition phytosterols are vegetable oils, legumes, sesame and sunflower seeds, cereals and wholemeal bread. Plant sterols are increasingly being used in supplementation of athletes, which use their ability to increase exercise capacity and stimulation of muscle mass.
Dosage: The optimal dose is 2 grams of phytosterols per day (and cannot exceed 3g). Average consumption in Europe is much lower and amounts are a little more than 200 mg per day.
Coenzyme Q10 (ubiquinone) is a physiological antioxidant, a fat soluble. It takes an active part in the process of creating the energy of ATP. intracorporeal synthesis requires the presence of B vitamins and trace elements, its intensification is caused by heavy training stress or under the influence of stress. Beneficial effects of Coenzyme Q10 has been found on the cardiovascular system, lipid profile (lowering LDL) cholesterol and reduce the risk of heart disease. Reducing the level of coenzyme Q10 starts when the age of 35, hence must be supplemented by preparations available in cosmetics (external action on the skin), and supplements intensifying the production of energy (for athletes strength) as well as mono-preparation supplement available at www.muscle-zone.pl.
Dosage: 10 - 90 mg / 24h
