Have you been ignoring this vitamin that could help you beat the odds when it comes to high cholesterol, stiff arteries, and even tumors?
By now, you don’t need me to tell you to take your vitamins. You know how essential to maintaining good health they are… you know they can work miracles in both preventing and treating even the most serious of diseases… and you know the ABCs of your vitamins A, B, C, D, E, and K. But there’s a trick to taking your vitamins—and it’s one that too many people don’t know about. Because it’s not just a matter that you take your vitamins… but how you take them. And, sad to say, popping a daily multi just isn’t enough. In fact, certain vitamins need to be combined with others in order to work better. On their own, believe it or not, they won’t do much good! When it comes to other vitamins, though, sometimes you’ve got to isolate one powerful nutrient and let it shine in the spotlight all by itself. That’s the case with a certain type of compound you’ve surely never heard of—despite the fact that there’s a trail of evidence that’s begun to emerge, demonstrating its power to prevent and treat two of the biggest health concerns out there. I’m talking about cardiovascular disease and cancer. And yes, you can beat them both back with a humble vitamin, an essential nutrient that all of us have heard of and some of us may have even taken as a supplement. But when it comes to your heart health… and stopping cancer before it starts… I’ll bet that you haven’t been doing this one trick that maximizes its power and keeps its disease-fighting potential from being sabotaged. So, here’s what you need to do— but first, a little background on this essential nutrient, vitamin E. Shining the spotlight on an unsung hero It may surprise you to know that vitamin E actually refers to not just one vitamin… but a family of compounds. In fact, there are two types of compounds within the vitamin E family, called tocopherols and tocotrienols. The form you are most likely familiar with is alpha-tocopherol, the form of vitamin E most commonly found as a stand-alone supplement and in multivitamins.
