(prevents other compounds from combining with oxygen), and so prevents cell membrane
damage. It also is important in proper formation of red blood cells and muscles.
A deficiency of vitamin E is very difficult to produce, even
in the laboratory, but based on animal studies it may cause reproductive failure, liver
