Vitamin E: how to consume it and why?
Alexandra Rada, a specialist in aesthetic medicine, explains that vitamin E is an essential nutrient for skin care. She learns more in ‘Aesthetically’.
Vitamin E is an antioxidant, that is, it fights free radicals within the body, a property that also prevents the aging of skin cells. In this episode of Estéticamente , Dr. Alexandra Rada explains how to include it in your diet and skin care routine.
3 foods that contain vitamin E
It is recommended to consume between 12 and 15 milligrams of vitamin E per day and these three foods contain a large percentage of this recommended dose:
- Hazelnuts:this dry fruit has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects that manage to reduce the levels of fats in the blood and protect the arteries. In addition, they are rich in vitamin E and B6, important for the nervous and immune systems. The ideal portion of hazelnuts per day is 15 to 20 units and this covers approximately 20% of vitamin E that should be consumed daily.
- Spinach:for every 100 grams of this vegetable, 2 milligrams of vitamin E are consumed, which strengthens the health of hair, bones and skin. In addition, according to the specialized health medium Medical News Today , it is a great source of protein, vitamins and minerals such as iron, calcium, magnesium, potassium, vitamins A and K, thiamine, phosphorus and folic acid.
- Almonds:consuming almonds ensures the consumption of vitamins E and B, vegetable protein, calcium, fiber and healthy fats. Thanks to these nutrients, almonds have an antioxidant effect that helps skin health; in fact, for every 100 grams of almonds, approximately 20 milligrams of vitamin E are consumed.
