Vitamin E, a fat-soluble nutrient, is one of the most important antioxidants required by our bodies. It's especially relevant to the bodily processes that fight inflammation and repair damaged cells. It also helps to prevent the breakdown of important lipids, such as the fatty acids that regulate bodily functions and lubricate joints. Read on to understand how Vitamin E functions as one of the key ingredients in Mountain Ice!
When we engage in physical activity, muscles tear; the repair process allows them to grow stronger, increasing both muscle mass and strength. The plasma membrane that surrounds every cell is vital to this repair, and studies indicate that Vitamin E promotes the faster rebuilding of this membrane.
Studies suggest that Vitamin E prevents lipids from breaking down, and these fatty acids are an important component of the synovial fluid in our joints. Low levels of synovial fluid are found in patients with inflammatory arthritis, so Vitamin E may help improve joint health in people with RA and similar types of arthritis. More generally, synovial fluid reduces friction when joints rub together, making it necessary for better joint health and to help reduce inflammation associated with osteoarthritis.
Antioxidants like Vitamin E help to reduce inflammation, which can improve recovery from physical exertion as well as reduce soreness afterwards. In Mountain Ice, Vitamin E is an important component of relieving inflammation associated with osteoarthritis, Rheumatoid Arthritis, and autoimmune conditions as diverse as diabetic neuropathy, fibromyalgia, and lupus.
Oxidative stress, the imbalance of free radicals and antioxidants, can cause cellular damage resulting in inflammation, sometimes even as a chronic condition. Antioxidants can stop this damage, and this pathway is increasingly being examined as a possible prevention method against RA. As a powerful antioxidant, Vitamin E scavenges free radicals, reacting with them to stabilize them. This may be why it shows evidence of preventing joint damage even when inflammation is present.
Vitamin E is so crucial for muscular health that a lack of it can cause muscle weakness and atrophy. In the long term, Vitamin E deficiency can even cause central nervous system issues like ataxia (impaired coordination), araflexia (loss of muscle response to stimuli), and loss of proprioception, your body's awareness of its own position and movement. Every movement your body makes is dependent on Vitamin E, making it vital for people with mobility issues stemming from arthritis as well as autoimmune conditions.
Vitamin E is necessary for the production of prostaglandins, lipid compounds that help control vasodilation (widening of blood vessels to increase blood flow), muscle relaxation, muscle contraction, and both bronchoconstriction and bronchodilation, the widening and contraction of lungs -- literally, both the pull and push of breathing. This may be relevant to those with RA, as 1 in 10 people with Rheumatoid Arthritis develop Interstitial Lung Disease, the result of lung tissue becoming inflamed and developing scarring over time.
