Vitamin E is a fat-soluble vitamin and functions within the human body in the active form of a-tocopherol; Vitamin E is a powerful biological antioxidant which acts to protect cells against free radicals which are potentially damaging by products of energy metabolism. Free radicals can damage cells and may contribute to the development of cardiovascular disease and cancer. Vitamin E also plays a role in immune function, in DNA repair, and other metabolic processes.
