Vitamin E, also known as tocopherol, is a collective term for fat-soluble substances with antioxidant and non-antioxidant effects and is a radical quencher.
Function & Details
Vitamin E plays a role in regulating the gonads and is thus also called an anti-sterility vitamin. The minimum requirement is 4 mg / day and in addition a supply of about 0.4 mg of unsaturated fatty acids. Vitamin E is an anticoagulant and can lead to significant improvements in symptoms in patients suffering from neurodermatitis.
Deficiency signs for vitamin E include dry, wrinkly skin, concentration disorders, inefficiency, fatigue, irritability and poorly healing wounds.
