Is vitamin E important and which foods contain it?
Asked by on Nov 12, 2010
Every vitamin is essential to sustain life and is important. Vitamin E’s particular role is to protect cell membranes from damage. Damage comes from normal byproducts of bodily processes and by environmental agents such as toxic chemicals from pesticides and cigarette smoke. Vitamin E is abundant in fortified ready-to-eat cereals, seeds, nuts, peanut butter, wheat germ, whole grains, polyunsaturated plant oils, tomato sauce, and in dark green leafy vegetables like spinach and kale.
