Caption: Vitamin E. Polarised light micrograph of spiky crystals of vitamin E (tocopherol) superimposed on a background with the letter E. This is an essential vitamin for fertility and reproduction. Vitamin E is widely distributed in vegetable lipids and the body fat in animals; the richest sources are seed embryos and their oils, and green leaves. The vitamin protects unsaturated fats from oxidation. As tocopherol is widely distributed in the diet, vitamin E deficiency is rare. Magnification: unknown.
