Vitamin E

Posted by Charlotte Miller on

Vitamin E helps with many functions in our body; most notably it helps to maintain immune function, good vision, healthy skin and the function of circulatory system. Most people don’t find it difficult to get all the vitamin E they need and deficiency is rare.
Where is vitamin E found?
  • Sunflower seeds
  • Nuts – almonds (lots of vitamin E!), peanuts
  • Avocados
  • Green vegetables – think spinach
Like all our fat-soluble vitamins, vitamin E requires fat to ensure it is properly absorbed. (Fat-soluble means fat is required for digestion of these vitamins; these vitamins are also stored in our fat tissue) Vitamin E in nuts and seeds has an accompanying fat source but it’s a good idea to have your green vegetables with olive oil or avocado to get all the benefits.
