By: California Center of Longevity & Functional Medicine on September 13, 2014

At the California Center of Longevity and Functional Medicine, we have successfully helped patients to improve upon countless symptoms, simply by confirming that they are receiving the proper amounts of vitamins and minerals to successfully eradicate various medical conditions.

While it is important that all children, adults, and elders get enough vitamins each day, we are often asked about the role that a specific vitamin plays in our overall health and wellbeing. Here's an overview of the countless benefits that Southern California patients of the California Center of Longevity and Functional Medicine will reap from proper levels of Vitamin E. Vitamin E is found in many foods including vegetable oils, cereals, meat, chicken, turkey eggs, fruits, and vegetables. A diet which is unbalanced, or people with specific genetic disorders may present with a Vitamin E deficiency. But for those who don't have a diagnosed Vitamin E deficiency, this type of supplement still offers numerous benefits.
