Vitamin E

Vitamin E is a dilator of blood vessels and is known to prevent excessive scar tissue production when applied topically. I've personally had some success in using it to treat a scar caused by a burn to my skin, so I'm not a total vitamin E skeptic by any means. Years back it used to be the only treatment suggested for peyronie's disease sufferers, but this was mainly due to there being so few other available options, rather than a testament to the power of vitamin E.

Studies into Vitamin E have not particularly demonstrated it to be a powerful treatment for peyronie's disease. It is seen as a relatively safe though, and as such finds itself in the "does no harm, and may do some good" category. Some people swear by it, but in my view any improvement seen while taking vitamin E is more likely to be due to the natural course of peyronie's disease, or other treatments being taken alongside the vitamin. It perhaps is of some use when used as part of a multi-pronged strategy to combat the condition.

Should you wish to include vitamin E in a treatment program, I would advise you to purchase a full spectrum variety. Vitamin E consists of 8 fat soluble compounds. Many high street Vitamin E supplements only provide one of these, alpha-tocopherol, and so you may not be getting the maximum possible benefit. The full spec variety at least ensures that if this is a helpful treatment for you, you'll receive the maximum benefit from it.
