May I buy a vowel? How about an “E”?
Vitamin E is an important fat-soluble vitamin. It’s main role is functioning as an anti-oxidant. Anti-oxidants protect body cells from the kind of damage that leads to health problems. Some health problems that anti-oxidants help protect against include cancer, heart disease, and cataracts. Vitamin E appears to work with other anti-oxidants such as vitamin C and selenium, to help reduce the risk of chronic diseases.The best sources of Vitamin E are good fats. These include nuts such as sunflower seeds, almonds, and hazelnuts. Unsaturated oils such as safflower or sunflower oil, corn oil, canola oil, and soybean oil are also rich in vitamin E. You can also obtain a good amount from broccoli, soybeans and pumpkin.The recommended daily intake for Vitamin E is 15 mg. Many Americans do not obtain this amount. A survey found that almost none of women aged 20 to 50 get the recommended intake from food. So it’s a good idea to make sure you take Diet Center Antioxidant Formula that provides 200 mg of vitamin E, along with vitamin A and Vitamin D. A combination of rich sources and Diet Center’s Antioxidant Formula will help ensure that you obtain enough Vitamin E, which is essential for good nutrition.
