Vitamin E


Vitamin E was first discovered in 1922 at the University of California in Berkeley when it was observed that rats required the nutrient in order to maintain their fertility. In this way, vitamin E became known as the antisterility vitamin. Although considered and essential nutrient, it was not until the mid 1960's that deficiency states in humans were first identified. More specifically, deficiency was detected in children with fat malabsortion syndromes.
