Aside from vitamin pills how can I get vitamin e?

Asked by pleiades (5808 points ) January 21st, 2014

I’m guessing vitamin E also has an alias that I’m not aware of… Thanks!

Avocados, tofu, almonds, to name a few.

Yes and fish and many other nuts.
You could always take a supplement a couple times a week, along with your diet.

Just include some excellent and very good sources of vitamin E into your diet. Some good sources are mustard greens, chard, sunflower seeds, broccoli, olives, Peanut butter, Wheat germ, avocado, kale, almonds and papaya.

I take fish oil capsules as a supplement to lower my LDL. My HDL is excellent.

@Smitha From what I’ve searched online and in stores Kale didn’t show vitamin E? Maybe it’s not high enough for it to be noticed?

Just one tablespoon of wheat germ oil will provide 100% of your daily need. You can use it instead of olive oil to make salad dressing, or you can add it to most sauces. But, don’t use wheat germ oil to fry or sauté food; it loses its nutrients when heated to a high temperature.

Why do you want extra Vitamin E?

Smitha's avatar

@pleiades Kale is very high in vitamin K and it also has Vitamin E which is good for heart.

@Rarebear I do agree excesses of all nutrients can potentially cause toxicities. But I guess there won’t be any harm if we consume them in the proper amounts.
