Don’t let naysayers stop you from taking this vital skin supplement.
If the year that has just passed has taken a heavy toll on you, especially on your skin, it is not too late for a fix—a vitamin E one that is. This fat-soluble vitamin protects your skin from free radicals and it is regarded as a vital antioxidant for skin health.

You’ve achieved the rosy skin you want but you’ve also added some fats here and there? Fortunately, this is only a misconception. In fact, the real culprit of weight gain is excess calories and lack of exercise, not the supplement.
2. It can make blood thinner.
Bleeding may happen as a result of blood thinning when Vitamin E is taken beyond the recommended daily limit of 1500IU. It may pose a risk of hemorrhage for those who are simultaneously taking anticoagulant/blood thinning medications like aspirin but note that it is not the case for healthy individuals.
