Vitamin E

Along with Vitamin A, B, C, and D; Vitamin E is found in food and plays an important role. It, of course, is not useful on its own. In order for it to benefit us, we must be balanced over all. Just how we can’t workout one muscle alone and expect results; our body can’t feel healthy with only one vitamin alone. Our vitamins are important to our over-all well being. Understanding what Vitamins do for our body and where to find them is a huge step towards a permanently healthy lifestyle.

Vitamin E has important antioxidant properties. Our liver and intestines play a huge role in absorbing our vitamins. If our filtering system doesn’t work than our whole body is being depleted and stripped from our vitamins. A colonics, probiotics, Dandelion root taken either in capsules or tea are great to get your bowel movements regulated and toxin free. The less your liver has to work the more it can do in keeping you clean and healthy by shooting out nutrients after your intestines absorb forms of Vitamin E. Vitamin E is a fat soluble antioxidant meaning the vitamin is stored in fat and fatty tissues for later use. It protects the Vitamin A, C, red blood cells and fatty acids from being destroyed. Eating fruits and vegetables regularly will increase antioxidants in the body and keep you clear from cancers and other diseases. Vitamin E deficiency is very rare and usually happens to infants that can’t absorb fat. Over dosages lead to digestive problems and nausea.

Some foods that are naturally rich in Vitamin E are wheat germ oil, Almonds, Sunflower seeds, Sunflower oil, Hazelnut, safflower oil, peanut butter, peanuts spinach, broccoli, soybean oil, kiwi, and mangos. Two ounces of roasted almonds serves as a daily required amount of Vitamin E which equals about 15gms for a person over the age of 14. Some feel we aren’t receiving our correct number of vitamins a day. The truth is you are hearing from someone that supports and believes in the sales of vitamin supplements. Supplements are a business, a multimillion one I might add. Why wouldn’t they tell you that you are lacking in vitamins so that you can buy their product? It’s all part of sales. Study your own body and find out if you are lacking in any areas like your vitamins and then start increasing your amount by eating the right foods. There is no sense in buying a sugar pill believing you are lacing in vitamins and not eating well enough. The average person receives all of their vitamins daily, all from their food.
