E - Tocopherol Key to hair health,
Vitamin E was the fifth vitamin discovered when researchers found that a dietary deficiency in laboratory rats produced fetal death in pregnant females. The name "tocopherol" was derived from the Greek words for childbirth (tos), to bring forth (phero), and the chemical designation for an alcohol (ol). Vitamin E exerts an especially important antioxidant effect in the lungs where the cells are exposed to high oxygen concentrations that can destroy molecules in their membranes. Vitamin E acts as a co-enzyme in cellular membranes and serves as a scavenger for free radicals that are destructive to the membrane and internal cellular components. Vitamin E may also help defend against heart disease. Normal nerve development also depends on Vitamin E, and the vitamin protects the white blood cells that defend the body against disease and may play other roles in normal immunity. Although vitamin E is stored in the body, overdoses appear to have lower toxic effects than do overdoses of other fat-soluble vitamins. Natural sources of vitamin E are vegetable oils, sunflower seeds, almonds, and peanuts.
