Vitamin E is important role in implantation of fertilize ovum. Administration of vitamin E [alpha tocopherol] during the first half of gestation permits normal embryo development and parturition. The improvement in function of red blood cells by alpha tocopherol serves as the basis for bioassay for vitamin E activity. A sparing effect of vitamin E upon hormone action particularly insulin and sex hormones. This is considered a result of vitamin E existing an antioxidant or sparing action upon the hormone metabolism.
