Vitamin E is a group of 8 fat-soluble vitamins which help prevent oxidative stress to the body, and other vitamins within the body.
Adequate amounts of vitamin E can help protect against heart disease, cancer, and age-related eye damage (macular degeneration).
Conversely, too much vitamin E from supplements can lead to excessive bleeding. Vitamin E foods, like the ones listed below, are considered to be safe and healthy.
Foods high in vitamin E include sunflower seeds, almonds, spinach, avocados, squash, kiwifruit, trout, shrimp, olive oil, wheat germ oil, and broccoli. The current Daily Value (DV) for vitamin E is 15mg.
