Vitamin E is an important antioxidant, and donates an electron to prevent the oxidation of LDL and lipid membranes.1 The stable vitamin E radical produced can be recycled by vitamin C, the most valuable aqueous antioxidant, demonstrating how these two vitamins synergistically help maintain good health.1 Vitamin C is also necessary for the synthesis of collagen, the primary structural protein found in connective tissue.1 As collagen is the main protein involved in wound healing, deficiencies in vitamin C may lead to the impaired healing of wounds.2 Vitamin A also contributes to maintaining healthy skin by preserving the skin-s barrier integrity.3 It increases the proliferation of dividing cells in the epidermis, compacts the outer epidermal layer that consists of dead cells, and increases the number of glycosaminoglycans – polysaccharides that help hydrate the skin.3 Vitamin A also helps maintain immune function by stimulating the development of lymphocytes, including natural killer and T and B cells.4 Zinc further contributes to maintaining immune health by stimulating cell division in lymphocytes and increasing their phagocytic activity.5 NPN 80037906 08305 1.
