E is a fat-soluble antioxidant that stops the production of reactive
oxygen species (ROS)
formed when fat undergoes oxidation. Scientists are investigating
whether, by limiting free-radical production and possibly through other
mechanisms, vitamin E might help prevent or delay the chronic diseases
associated with free radicals.
body forms reactive oxygen species (ROS) endogenously when it
converts food to energy, and
antioxidants might protect cells from the damaging effects of ROS. The
body is also exposed to free radicals from environmental exposures,
such as cigarette smoke, air pollution, and ultraviolet radiation from
the sun. ROS are part of signaling mechanisms among cells.
