I’m sure everyone has heard about the importance of vitamins and minerals. It is something most people start hearing about in elementary school. But, did you know the amount of power that certain vitamins and minerals can have on your body? I feel like vitamin E is not talked about enough. It has so many great benefits that more people should know about.
Benefits of Vitamin E
- Enhances immune function
- May reduce heart disease risk factors
- May benefit skin health
- May prevent cancer
- Can reduce PMS symptoms
- Red Bell Pepper
- Sunflower Seeds
- Peanuts/Peanut Butter
- Beet Greens/Collard Greens/Spinach
While supplements are easy to take and keep track of, its really important to try to get your vitamins and minerals from food sources first. That is where the vitamins and minerals are in their natural forms.
