Vitamin E is an essential fat-soluble vitamin with antioxidant properties. On a daily basis, an average adult needs about 15mg of it. However, your body cannot naturally produce it, so you have to rely on food sources like almonds, raw seeds, spinach, avocados and plant oils for vitamin E. Consuming these foods will benefit your health in these ways:

  • Owing to the natural antioxidant properties, vitamin E shields your body cells from damage, and prevents digestive and cardiovascular health problems.
  • It boosts the immunity, thus aiding the healthy functioning of the liver and kidney.
  • Vitamin E is particularly good for overall skin health. It prevents pigmentation and delays aging. If you have a wound or sunburn, eating foods that are rich in this vitamin will speed up the healing process.
  • Women may find this nutrient helpful as it could combat menstrual cramps and dysmenorrhea.
  • Vitamin E is also known to reduce blood clotting, and can improve blood circulation.
