    Vitamin E is an antioxidant that may help prevent heart disease, Alzheimer's, and two common vision stealers -- macular degeneration and cataracts. Government guidelines recommend a daily intake of 22.5 international units (IU) of vitamin E, but this is only enough to prevent deficiency. For optimal health and disease prevention, we recommend that you aim for 400 international units (IU) of vitamin E per day. It's tough to get all the vitamin E you need from food alone, so top off your supply with a daily vitamin E supplement.

    Tip: Take your E with C (1,200 mg). These two antioxidant vitamins work together to prevent the oxidation that causes clogs in blood vessel walls, and pairing them on a daily basis can make you look 3 years younger.
