Vitamin E is a fat soluble antioxidant, which is very important in the protection of brain and peripheral nerve cells. Vitamin E is able to cross through the blood brain barrier, but it does have some difficulty. Researchers have to use very high doses of vitamin E in supplementation in order to increase the level of Vitamin E in this area of the body. Therefore Vitamin E is an important antioxidant in protecting brain cells but probably not the best one in this situation.
