What is the function of vitamin E? First of all, vitamin E promotes growth and physical and cognitive development. In addition to this, it prevents cell damage caused by free radicals, protects the skin from ultraviolet rays and significantly reduces the risk of prostate cancer and Alzheimer’s.
Vitamin E deficiency symptoms include: digestive problems, particularly malabsorption (poor absorption of nutrients at the intestinal level), tingling or loss of feeling in arms, hands and feet, immune system disorders caused by a weakened immune system, myopathy (muscle problems) and ataxia (very poor coordination of muscles).
