Vitamin E Supplements

What is vitamin E?

Vitamin E is a major antioxidant and the primary defense against lipid peroxidation. It is particularly important in protecting the body's cells from free radical/oxidative damage. These protective benefits are achievable with supplemental intakes higher than what is normally consumed in the average diet.

Vitamin E isn't recommended if you're taking blood-thinning medications (anticoagulants) because it can complicate the proper control of blood thinning. If you're already taking an individual vitamin or mineral supplement and haven't told your doctor, discuss it at your next checkup.

Food sources of vitamin E

Food sources of vitamin E include: whole grains, such as wheat and oats, wheat germ, leafy green vegetables, sardines, egg yolks, nuts.
