Vitamin E is a major antioxidant and the primary defense against lipid peroxidation. It is particularly important in protecting the body’s cells from free radical/oxidative damage. These protective benefits are achievable with supplemental intakes higher than what is normally consumed in the average diet. Mixed tocopherols may be superior at inhibiting lipid peroxidation than alpha-tocopherol alone, according to an in vitro study printed in the May 2002 issue of the Journal of Cardiovascular Pharmacology (39, 5:714-21, 2002).
