Vitamin E has a wide range of clinical applications, covering gynecology, pediatrics, dermatology, ophthalmology, nephrology, cardiovascular and cerebrovascular internal medicine, gastroenterology, etc. The following describes eight clinical applications of vitamin E.
The metabolite of vitamin E is tocopherol, which is good for fertility. Therefore, vitamin E is also known as tocopherol. It can effectively promote the secretion of sex hormones and increase the vitality and quantity of male sperm. Not only that, but also increase the concentration of female estrogen. Enhance the physiological function of the ovaries and improve the ability of natural pregnancy. Therefore, vitamin E is widely used in infertility.
Second, recurrent miscarriage
The serum vitamin E of pregnant women gradually rises during pregnancy, and the body's vitamin E is maintained at a high level during normal pregnancy. Studies have shown that the serum vitamin E of women in the recurrent miscarriage group and infertility group is lower than that of the normal group, suggesting appropriate vitamin supplementation E has a therapeutic effect on some recurrent miscarriages, but it lacks a large sample of data experiments to support it.
3. Skin diseases
Since the side chain of vitamin E directly participates in the redox process of sulfhydryl groups, it inhibits tyrosinase activity, inhibits the formation of pigment spots and age spots, and prevents acne pigmentation. At the same time, it can promote the transportation of nutrients and the excretion of metabolic waste in the body, which is conducive to the repair and removal of stains.
Vitamin E can inhibit lipid peroxidation, maintain contact between tissues, and make skin smooth and elastic. The tocopherol molecules contained in it can penetrate into the epidermis and even reach the subcutaneous tissues, helping the skin to resist the damage of free radicals, ultraviolet rays and pollutants.
Vitamin E can protect cell membranes from oxidative damage caused by free radicals, repair and strengthen the skin's natural protective barrier, lock the moisture in the skin, and provide deep nourishment to the skin from the inside out. In addition, by promoting capillary microcirculation, the skin can obtain a rich supply of nutrients, which can nourish the skin, delay and reduce wrinkles.
The topical application of vitamin E cream can effectively relieve wrinkles and itching caused by dry skin, and can be used clinically for the treatment of dry dermatitis.
