Vitamin E protects the brain, nerves, muscles, heart, arteries, glands, reproductive system, and digestive organs from oxidative damage throughout life. Vitamin E also protects the lungs against damage from air pollution and cells from damage by toxic chemicals in food and water. Vitamin E is utilized by practically all our tissues. As the prime antioxidant in fatty tissue, it stabilizes and protects cell membranes from toxic substances such as heavy metals, chemicals, drugs, radiation, and the body’s free radical metabolites. Vitamin E works synergistically with the antioxidant selenium, it protects vitamin A and C from oxidation and it helps increase the level of the powerful free radical scavenger superoxide dismutase.
Selenium: Selenium is a trace mineral that acts primarily as a component of the antioxidant enzyme glutathione peroxidase, which works with vitamin E in preventing free radical damage to cell membranes.
