Vitamin E is an antioxidant that helps to prevent free radical damage and premature aging. Whole food sources of vitamin E include asparagus, avacado, seeds, spinach, and whole grains. However, most Americans do not eat enough foods high in vitamin E to get an adequate amount of this important vitamin (and, due to poor soil health, many vegetables lack ideal levels of vitamins and minerals). Thus, vitamin E is one of the most popular supplements on the market today.

Scientific research shows that vitamin E may reduce the risk of prostate cancer and congenital heart defects in offspring. Further, vitamin E deficiency may cause neurological problems, brain fog, coordination problems, and anemia. Without enough vitamin E, free radicals can damage red blood cells to such an extent that they cannot properly transport oxygen.

What’s the difference between shea butter and cocoa butter? Some people use the terms interchangeably. Although these two natural ingredients have many of the same uses, there are also many differences.

Shea butter comes from the nut of the shea tree in Africa. It is a wonderful moisturizer and leaves the skin feeling smooth and youthful. It has a non-greasy application, and it is used as the base of many expensive skin care products. Shea butter revitalizes the skin as well as the hair. Shea butter is a great natural hair conditioner that protects follicles from splitting and drying. It has also been used successfully to treat acne and eczema and to reduce wrinkles and scars. As a bonus, shea butter blocks harmful UV rays from damaging the skin.

Cocoa butter, on the other hand, comes from the cacao bean. It’s used in making chocolate, pharmaceuticals, and many personal care products. Cocoa butter contains many antioxidants and has a long shelf life of up to five years (depending on other ingredients in the final product). Cocoa butter is often added to cosmetics, skincare products, and soaps to increase shelf life. It is also wonderful for chapped lips. Cocoa butter also smells heavenly and makes a wonderful massage oil. It moisturizes the skin and is often used my expectant mothers to prevent stretch marks.

You’ve probably heard the buzz about fish oil and omega-3 oils. But you may not know that krill oil offers the benefits of omega-3 oils plus the added bonus of extra antioxidants.

If doctors could choose only one supplement to recommend for patients, most would choose fish oil. Fish oil contains DHA and EPA, two essential fats that your body needs to function properly. In particular, these fats maintain the health of your cardiovascular and immune systems.

However, compared to krill oil, fish oil contains few antioxidants. Antioxidants neutralize free radicals, which cause oxidative damage within the body. This damage can speed up the rate of aging. Unfortunately, the typical American diet lacks the proper amounts of antioxidants as well as omega-3 oils. Supplementing antioxidants in the diet can help to slow the aging process.

Additionally, krill oil is more easily absorbed by the body than fish oil. Pure krill oil is the best source of omega-3 oils with DHA and EPA plus the added benefit of antioxidants.
