Ulcerative Colitis
Description

 

Ulcerative colitis is a chronic inflammation of the large intestine (colon). The colon is the part of the digestive system where waste material is stored. The rectum is the end of the colon adjacent to the anus.

Symptoms, which can range from mild to severe,  include:

  • bloody diarrhoea
  • abdominal pain
  • a frequent need to go to the toilet
  • weight loss

Episodes can flare up and then disappear for months or even years

Ulcerative colitis is closely related to Crohn's disease. Together, they are frequently referred to as inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Ulcerative colitis and Crohn's diseases are chronic conditions that can last years to decades. Men and women are affected equally and the condition usually begins during adolescence and early adulthood.

Natural Vitamin E 400iu

Vitamin E in its natural form (as d-alpha Tocopherol)
Current research suggests that a daily intake of 400iu is a sensible level. However, it is often difficult, if not impossible, to get this level from a typical diet. For example, 0.45kg (1 lb) of sunflower seeds are needed to obtain 400iu of vitamin E.

This is our most popular strength vitamin E supplement. All Lamberts® vitamin E products are manufactured in the UK in premises that operate to stringent pharmaceutical standards of GMP. Our vitamin E is extracted from a natural vegetable oil and supplied in gelatin free capsules.

Lamberts® uses the natural form of vitamin E called d-alpha tocopherol, as this is the form in which it occurs in foods. Research shows that natural vitamin E has a higher biological activity, and is absorbed and retained more readily by the body than the cheaper synthetic vitamin E (dl-alpha tocopherol).

Vitamin E contributes to the protection of the body’s cells from oxidative stress caused by reactive compounds called ‘free radicals’ and this protective role has put vitamin E at the centre of worldwide research.
