Does vitamin E help in anti-aging?

In theory: In theory all antioxidants ( including vitamin e) help in delaying cell death. This has to be taken by mouth and not in cream form. What dosis and for how long has not been well defined. Vit. E may have an anticoagulant effect similar or less effective that Aspirin so it's suggested to stop it before surgeries.
