Vitamin E is an important antioxidant, and donates an electron to prevent the oxidation of LDL and lipid membranes. 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. Vitamin C is also necessary for the synthesis of collagen, the primary structural protein found in connective tissue. As collagen is the main protein involved in wound healing, deficiencies in vitamin C may lead to the impaired healing of wounds. Vitamin A also contributes to maintaining healthy skin by preserving the skin-s barrier integrity. 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. Vitamin A also helps maintain immune function by stimulating the development of lymphocytes, including natural killer and T and B cells. Zinc further contributes to maintaining immune health by stimulating cell division in lymphocytes and increasing their phagocytic activity.
