Are You Getting Enough Vitamin E?
If you’re lacking in vitamin E, you’re not alone. Many people are deficient, which can contribute to a variety of health conditions.
For example, millions of people with metabolic syndrome, a combination of conditions including high blood pressure, increased blood sugar and extra belly fat, may be lacking vitamin E.
According to researchers at Oregon State University, people with metabolic syndrome may actually need 30-50% more vitamin E than healthy people.
Here’s How to Get More Vitamin E
Talk to your doctor about whether a vitamin E supplement may be right for you. If you’d rather eat your vitamins, this nutrient is also abundant in certain foods, including:
- Wheat germ
- Sweet potato
- Sunflower seeds
