Indications: Vitamin E is an important vitamin required for the proper function of many organs in the body. It is also an antioxidant. This means it helps to slow down processes that damage cells.

Vitamin E is an antioxidant found in many foods such as nuts, seeds, and many types of leafy green vegetables. Vitamin E is essential in fighting free radicals which are molecules produced when our body breaks down food or is exposed to tobacco smoke and radiation from the sun, X-rays, or other sources. It is also used to treat and prevent vitamin E deficiency.

Mechanism of Action

The mechanism of action for most vitamin E products are still unknown. Vitamin E is an antioxidant which prevents free radicals from reacting with our cell membranes. One known mechanism of vitamin E’s antioxidant effect is the termination of lipid peroxidation. Vitamin E reacts with unstable lipid radicals, creating stable lipids and a relatively stable vitamin E radical. This new vitamin E radical is then reduced back to a stable vitamin E molecule through interaction with ascorbate or glutathione.
