WHAT IS VITAMIN E (ALPHA-TOCOPHEROL) TEST?
Vitamin E is a fat-soluble vitamin found widely in foods such as green vegetables, grains, eggs, oils, liver, chicken, and fish. This vitamin prevents oxidation of vitamin A, deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA), and cell-membrane phospholipids by free radicals. It is necessary for proper reproductive function, muscle growth and development, and hemolytic resistance of red blood cell membranes. Deficiency of vitamin E causes hemolytic anaemia and neurologic abnormalities.
