Of powerful antioxidants and supple skin: how to get your dose of vitamin E

May 27, 2021 14:55 IST | By Vishakha Somani

A fat-soluble nutrient, vitamin E functions as an antioxidant in the body, protecting your cells from damage caused by free radicals. This is why vitamin E doesn’t just help you fight disease and sickness, it also supports your internal immune system. The vitamin has also been shown to improve your skin health and make your hair strong in some studies.  

Thankfully, vitamin E is readily available in many foods so you don’t need to reach out for supplements to get your daily dose. Here are some of the best natural sources of vitamin E:  

SUNFLOWER SEEDS  

There’s hardly a better source of vitamin E than sunflower seeds. A quarter of a cup of sunflower seeds completes about 90 per cent of your daily recommended intake. Apart from this, pumpkin and sesame seeds are also rich in vitamin E. You can sprinkle them on some yoghurt, salad or make a seed mix for snacking. 

ALMONDS 

Among its many other benefits, almonds are also an excellent source of vitamin E. You can have soaked almonds or roast them for your breakfast cereal. Just one-third of a cup of plain almonds takes care of around half of a person’s daily requirement. 

AVOCADO 

A highly versatile fruit that contains almost no sugar and hordes of nutrients. Avocados are also a pretty good vitamin E source. Consuming a whole avocado will take care of as much as 30 per cent of a person’s daily requirement. Have it on toast or make some guacamole.  

OLIVES  

With all the famous skin and hair benefits, olives and olive oil are both good sources of vitamin E. Olives are also high in other powerful antioxidants so feel free to add some to your salad or dress your salads with some unrefined olive oil.  

With so many options, you’ll never have to look beyond yummy foods to get your dose of vitamin E.
