What is Vitamin E?

Vitamin E, which is also referred to as tocopherol, is a fat soluble vitamin responsible for a number of essential functions in the body. The main function of vitamin E is its antioxidant properties which helps protect the body tissue from ‘free radicles’ which can harm cells, tissues and organs. Vitamin E also plays an important role in building the immune system, forming red blood cells and helping the body utilise vitamin K. It is also well known for helping keep skin looking youthful. Vegetable oils, nuts, seeds and green leafy vegetables are all brilliant sources of vitamin E. Many foods, such as cereals, juices and spreads are also fortified with vitamin E. If you feel you are not eating enough of these foods, you may be deficient in vitamin E and supplementation may be necessary.
