Vitamin E rich foods

Vitamin E is important for healthy hair and skin. Being low on vitamin E can lead to dry, flaky skin, as well as fragile hair. This antioxidant battles the damage of free radicals, which can harm the body during the process of metabolizing food and antioxidants. Adults should aim for 15 milligrams of vitamin E per day. Luckily, it’s easy to get in many popular foods. Nuts are an excellent source of Vitamin E. Just one ounce of almonds offers half of your daily vitamin E needs. Half a cup of peanuts offers 6 mg of vitamin E. Half of a medium-sized avocado offers around 2 mg of vitamin E. Cooked pumpkin is also a great choice, with one cooked cup offering 10 percent of your daily vitamin E needs and eight percent of your iron needs.
