Vitamin E absorption and metabolism

Vitamin E requires the presence of fats and bile in the gut to be absorbed. Approximately 20 to 60 per cent of dietary vitamin E is absorbed and it is stored in the liver, heart, fatty tissues, heart, muscles, testes, uterus, blood, adrenal and pituitary glands. Absorption and transport are likely to be reduced in elderly people.
