What is Vitamin E

What is Vitamin E

Like vitamins A & C, vitamin E acts predominantly as a potent antioxidant. Its chief antioxidant function is to help safeguard stored fatty acids (PUFAs) from oxygen damage, but it also helps fight general disease and inflammation, and protects cells against free-radicals.12

Additionally, vitamin E supports immunity, keeps blood vessels open and protects against clots, and aids cell communication.

  • Best Sources of Vitamin E — Think NUTS, SEEDS & OIL. Wheat germ, cereal, veggie oils, nuts & seeds, and green leafy veggies are all rich in vitamin E.3
  • Recommended Daily Intake — Men = 15 mg/day; women = 15 mg/day.4
  • Vitamin E Deficiency — Extremely rare and typically only occurs in people that can’t properly absorb fats. Effects include nerve & muscle damage, weakened immunity, and vision problems.
