German term or phrase: Zellenschutzvitamin
Vitamin E wird deshalb auch als Zellenschutzvitamin bezeichnet.
Ed Colaianni
English translation:"is so well known for..."
Explanation:
There doesn't seem to be a well-known term that can be used in English in a sentence like "That's why vitamin E is known as the xxx", so the only reasonable solution is "That is why vitamin E is so well known for protecting cells."

Cell-protecting vitamin


Explanation:
The full sentence would read

It is for this reason that Vitamin C is referred to as a cell-protector/cell-protecting/protective vitamin.
