Healthy 100-year-olds have higher levels of vitamins A and E
In a review of longevity studies, researchers found that healthy centenarians (100-year-olds) consistently have higher vitamin A levels than their less-healthy peers; levels similar to those in healthy young adults.

In several of the studies, the healthiest centenarians had normal vitamin A and vitamin E levels, which researchers believe protected against oxidative stress, contributing to their extreme longevity.
