Vitamin E

Vitamin E protects cell membranes from compounds such as lead, mercury, and other heavy metals; toxic compounds such as cleaning solvents; drugs; radiation; and the body’s free-radical metabolites. Severe vitamin E deficiency is quite rare, but symptoms in adults could include nerve damage, muscle weakness, poor coordination, involuntary movement of the eyes, and breaking of red blood cells, leading to hemolytic anemia.
