Roles Classification
Chemical Role(s): antioxidant
A substance that opposes oxidation or inhibits reactions brought about by dioxygen or peroxides. In European countries, E-numbers for permitted antioxidant food additives are from E 300 to E 324.
(via vitamin E )
(via tocol )
Biological Role(s): plant metabolite
Any eukaryotic metabolite produced during a metabolic reaction in plants, the kingdom that include flowering plants, conifers and other gymnosperms.
fat-soluble vitamin
Vitamins like A, D, E and K that dissolve in fats and are stored in body tissues. Unlike the water-soluble vitamins, these are stored in the body for long periods of time and generally pose a greater risk for toxicity when consumed in excess.
(via vitamin E )
Application(s): neuroprotective agent
Any compound that can be used for the treatment of neurodegenerative disorders.
