Vitamin E pills. Vitamin E is essential for the maintenance of normal cell structure, for sustaining the action of certain enzymes and for the formation of red blood cells. This vitamin also protects the lungs and other tissues from damaging pollutants and is believed to slow the aging of cells. With this purpose vitamin E is often present in cosmetic products. The principal dietary sources of vitamin E are vegetable oils, nuts, meat, green leafy vegetables, cereals, wheat-germ and egg yolk. Vitamin E deficiency leads to the destruction of red blood cells which eventually results in anaemia.
