NUTRIENTS >> Vitamin E

Like vitamin C, vitamin E plays a significant role as an antioxidant, thereby protecting body tissue from the damage of oxidation. It is important in the formation of red blood cells and the use of vitamin K. Many women also use it to help minimize the appearance of wrinkles, and mothers use it to help heal minor wounds without scarring, as it is valued for its ability to soothe and heal broken or stressed skin tissue.

Daily amounts needed
30 IU for most adults.
Children need between 6-11 mg/day. (1 IU is equal to approximately .75 mg)

Sources
Vitamin E is found in many foods, such as vegetable oils, nuts, and green leafy vegetables. Avocados, wheat germ, and whole grains are also good sources.

Deficiency symptoms and diseases
Gait disturbances, poor reflexes, loss of position sense, loss of vibration sense, shortened red blood cell life

Normal values
The plasma level of vitamin E in normal adults is about 10 mcg/ml; a plasma level of 5 mcg/ml or less is considered and indication of vitamin E deficiency.
