Vitamin E (Tocopherol) plays a vital role in all the body cells and in the fertility of most animal species.Birds equire a somewhat greater supply of vitamin E than mammals. Vitamin E maintains normal muscle metabolism and ensures good functioning of the central nervous system and vascula system and help the body to utilize vitamin K. Vitamin E is known as an antioxidant and occurs in muliple forms, but the alpha-tocopherol or α-tocopherol  being much more active than the others and the most easily absorbed. A vitamin E deficiency can lead to myocardial degeneration and degenerative changes in the skeletal tissues, reproductive tissues, liver and red blood cell membranes. A consequence of deficiency is an impairment of the immune system. Animals suffering from a deficiency of vitamin E are generally susceptible to infectious diseases. It is very important to ensure an adequae suppy of vitamin E at all times, as any damage to organs due to a deficency is usually irreversible. Vitamin E (alpha-tocopherol or α-tocopherol) is the sole tocopherol in the green parts of plants and is found together  with the others in the seeds of plants and particularly in the oils extracted from these seeds.
