Vitamin E is a fat soluble vitamin that is stored in the liver. It is a potent antioxidant that helps defend against lipid peroxidation by protecting polyunsaturated fatty acids in the cell membranes from free radicals. Vitamin E's potency is enhanced when combined with the mineral selenium. The Vitamin E stored in lung cell membranes provides a barrier from harmful effects of air pollutants.
