In our conversation, we learn what vitamin E is, why we need it and if we need to supplement with it. We also get into what an antioxidant really is and what it really does in the body (hint: it is important). Dr. Barrie also explains where vitamin E is found, how Pharma companies don’t give plants their due credit, and what changes in your body when you get enough vitamin E. Other important aspects we cover are how vitamin E affects diabetes, triglycerides and fatty liver disease.
