Hi friends,

# Vitamin E is also important in the formation of red blood cells and helps the body use vitamin K. Vitamin E improves circulation, is necessary in the repair of tissue, promotes normal blood clotting and healing, and can reduce scarring, too.

# Women find it useful in the treatment of premenstrual syndrome and fibrocystic disease of the breast.

# Older adults take it to help reduce blood pressure, relax leg cramps, help prevent cataracts, and, perhaps, to assist in reducing age spots.

# Vitamin E also helps prevent anemia, maintains healthy nerves and muscles, and promotes healthy skin and hair.
