Does Vitamin E Help Wounds Heal?

The short answer is YES, but here’s they ‘why’ of it:

In Adelle Davis’ “Let’s Get Well”, she says “When Vitamin E is generously supplied, the need for oxygen in the tissues is markedly reduced.” She provides multiple scientific resources. When a wound occurs, healing requires more oxygen than is available in the air and the result is an unsightly scar. When Vitamin E is applied, the oxygen requirement is reduced and scarring is more rapid and less unsightly.

Now, think about your organ tissue. Oxygen need for vital organ function is considerable. Vitamin E may reduce that requirement so the organ can function more efficiently.
