Okay . . . so today is the final day of our series about vitamins.
Today we talk about vitamin E . . .
Vitamin E is a fat-soluble nutrient found in many foods we eat. And acts as an antioxidant that helps to protect cells from the damage of "free radicals". We've spoken of this many time in other Health tips.
Free radicals are compounds formed when our body converts the food we eat into energy.
And vitamin E is key for strong immunity and healthy skin, reproduction, vision and the health of our blood and brain.
This essential nutrient occurs naturally in many foods we consume and is also available as a dietary supplement.
But . . . this is one of those elements that "too much" is not always a "good" thing.
Because consuming too much vitamin E can become toxic to the human body. And consuming doses higher than 1000 mg per day, can result in weakness, fatigue, nausea, diarrhea, bleeding and long term . . . even certain cancers.
So please, be aware of how much you consume or take in supplement form per day.
With this vitamin . . . "less" is "more"!
Okay . . . so my best rule of thumb is to consume it naturally. And that would be with foods such as . . . spinach, broccoli, kiwifruit, mango, tomatoes, wheat germ oil or in some nuts and seeds like sunflower seed, hazelnuts or almonds.
