From the expert

Vitamin E is an antioxidant important in protecting body tissue from damage caused by unstable substances called free radicals, which are produced by cigarette smoke, sunlight, pollution and chemical reactions in the body. Vitamin E is also important in the formation of red blood cells, keeping the immune system healthy and helps the body to use vitamin K.

Vitamin E is a fat-soluble vitamin that must be obtained through diet as the body is unable to make it. Good sources of vitamin E include vegetable oils, eggs, nuts, seeds, whole grains and green leafy vegetables. 

In the UK, vitamin E deficiencies are rare. Because vitamin E is a fat-soluble vitamin, a vitamin E deficiency is more likely to occur in those with digestive system problems where nutrients are poorly absorbed including pancreatic disease, gallbladder disease, coeliac disease and liver disease.

This measures levels of vitamin E in your blood.
