Vitamin E prevents muscle waste & repair cells!

Vitamin E is rubbed on the skin to reduce signs of ageing & is consumed by runners to improve endurance. But scientists now 've found how the powerful antioxidant helps repair tears in the plasma membrane.

According to the reports from the journal Nature Communications, the daily activities such as exercise & eating can tear the plasma membrane & a new research by Georgia Health Sciences University shows that Vitamin E is essential to repair.

A university statement said, without repair of muscle cells, take for instance, muscles eventually waste away & die in a process similar to what occurs in muscular dystrophy. Muscle weakness is a common complaint in diabetes, another condition associated with inadequate plasma membrane repair. 

The study co-author & Georgia's cell biologist, Paul McNeil said, "Without any special effort we consume Vitamin E everyday & we don't even know what it does in our bodies. Century-old animal studies linked Vitamin E deficiency to muscle problems but how that happens remained a mystery until now." According to him, lack of membrane repair causing muscle wasting & death prompted him to look at Vitamin E. 

Vitamin E appears to aid repair in several ways. As an antioxidant, it helps eliminate destructive byproducts from the body's use of oxygen that impede repair. Because it's lipid-soluble, Vitamin E can actually insert itself into the membrane to prevent free radicals from attacking. It also can help phospholipids, a major membrane component, complaint so they repair better after a tear.
