How vitamin E works in the body and on cells has long been a mystery.

Now, researchers at Georgia Health Sciences University report that vitamin E helps muscles by repairing tears in cell membranes. Their study was recently published in the journal Nature Communications.

The research on how vitamin E repairs tears in muscle cells –- and how it may work on diseases — is explained in this GHN video interview of Paul L. McNeil, a cell biologist and one of the study’s authors. He is a longtime faculty member at Georgia Health Sciences’ Medical College of Georgia and College of Graduate Studies.
