Vitamin E: what is it good for?

There is a good chance that vitamin E is not high on your priority list, but this vitamin is still indispensable. “Vitamin E strengthens the immune system and helps your cells communicate with each other, but it’s best known as a powerful antioxidant,” says Kim Yawitz, registered dietitian. But what exactly does vitamin E contain? We answer that question below.

Which foods contain vitamin E?

1. Black beans

You get 3 milligrams of vitamin E per cup of black beans. Beans are also high in protein and fiber, making them a very satiating choice,” says dietitian Amy Gorin.

2. Wheat germ oil

This oil tastes like nuts and is definitely worth adding to your shopping list. “One tablespoon of wheat germ oil provides a whopping 20 milligrams of vitamin E, which is more than adult men need in a day,” says Yawitz. This oil is delicious in a salad dressing or over your pasta, and ideal if you don’t eat a lot of nuts or seeds.
