How does it work?

While these studies were conducted separately, scientists participating in them drew some similar conclusions about the role that vitamin E plays in preventing cancer development. It appears that vitamin E is able to interfere with the special cells which actually nourish the cancerous tumor and help it to grow. This interference means that the tumor is not able to grow – or more importantly, not able to spread to other parts of the body. It also was apparently able to induce higher rates of cancer cell death – but without harming surrounding tissues.

Not all vitamin E is created equal

Before heading out to your local health food store to pick up a bottle of vitamin E – read on! Vitamin E actually comes in many different forms – and not all of these forms appear to be able to affect cancer cells in the way just described. The best kind appears to be vitamin E succinate, because it is this form which can act on the cancer cells and disrupt their ability to reproduce and spread – as well as hasten their death.

More research needs to be done to better understand the link between vitamin E levels and cancer – and the exact means by which this vitamin is able to stave off disease development. In the meantime, however, making sure to consume foods that are rich in Vitamin E and considering a supplement certainly won't hurt!
