Vitamin E capsules. Capsules of oil containing vitamin E (tocopherol). This vitamin is involved in protecting fats from oxidation in the body. It is fat-soluble and is absorbed with fats (lipids) in the intestines. It is needed for maintenance of normal cell structure, for the functioning of some enzymes, and to protect various tissues (such as the lungs) from damaging pollutants. Vitamin E is also believed to slow the ageing of cells. It can be obtained from vegetable oils, nuts, meat, green leafy vegetables, cereals, wheat-germ and egg yolk. Vitamin E deficiency can cause anaemia. Such a deficiency is treated by dietary supplements, such as these capsules.
