Vitamin E is an antioxidant, a nutrient found in food, that’s needed by humans to protect the brain, heart, and liver.
How much do I need? 15 mg per day (22IU)
How do I get it in my diet? Nuts (like almonds), seeds (like sunflower), and oils (like canola or olive).
Should I take Vitamin E supplements? It depends on your “oxidative stress” status, family history, and other antioxidant intakes. If you do take a Vitamin E supplement, take it with food.
