Vitamin E is an antioxidant. So why is it important, and how can we help ensure we're meeting our daily needs? Let’s dive in.*
How to Get Enough Vitamin E
Vitamin E is available in a wealth of plant-based foods, especially nuts and seeds. You might be low in Vitamin E if you don’t eat a variety of these foods, but that's where supplementation can come in handy. Many people in the US are not getting the recommended amounts of Vitamin E, which is why we recommend supplementing your diet with a quality multivitamin.*
Like a lot of nutrients, E comes in many subforms, eight to be exact. But four of the eight--the tocopherols--are important for us. The most recognized of the tocopherols are alpha tocopherol (a-TO) and gamma tocopherol (g-TO).
