Vitamin Eย ๐ŸŸ๐Ÿณ

We are on a roll with bringing you more information on the different vitamins. Up next is Vitamin E.

๐Ÿ” What is the function of Vitamin E?
Vitamin E is a fat-soluble vitamin that exists in eight different forms; however, of those, our bodies only use ฮฑ-tocopherol. Vitamin E has a number of important functions including:

๐Ÿ›‘ Helping to protect our cells against damage from free radicals
๐Ÿง Helps keep the normal function of our brain and nervous system
๐Ÿฉธ Helps keep nerve and red blood cells healthy and helps prevent clots from forming in our blood
๐Ÿฆ  Helping the body’s natural defence against illness and infection (the immune system) work properly

๐Ÿฅฃ Where does it come from?

We can find vitamin E in a variety of foods, but some of its richest sources include:

๐Ÿงˆ vegetable oils and vegetable fat spreads
๐Ÿฅœ nuts and seeds
๐ŸŸ some fatty fish
๐Ÿณ egg yolk
๐ŸŒพ whole-grain cereals

๐Ÿฅ„ How much do you need?

The amount of vitamin E adults aged 19 to 64 need is:

โ™€๏ธ 3mg a day for women
โ™‚๏ธ 4mg a day for men

๐Ÿฅ„ You should be able to get all the vitamin E you need from your diet. Any Vitamin E your body does not need immediately is stored for future use, so you do not need it in your diet every day.
