The world today is moving towards good health and healthy eating habits. This implies that moms make sure the food everyone in the family eats is nutritious and all-inclusive of the necessary vitamins, minerals, proteins that is required to lead a healthy growth pattern among kids and adults in the family.
In this article, I want to throw some light on the vitamins and how crucial it is to have them incorporated in our daily meal plans.
The main sources of vitamin E are almonds, avocado, sunflower seeds, palm oil, wheat germ, spinach, and sweet potato. While we can bank of many fruits and vegetables for vitamin E, it is important to asses what is the true intake level.
If you see the following symptoms like muscle weakness, abnormal eye movements or vision problems then it is best to see a doctor and do a blood test to gage the levels of vitamin E.
Though I have never really thought I’d be deficient, I do use the evion capsules to apply on my face at night. This routine has helped me lighten my dark circles. It is advised to mix it with almond oil and then apply to the facial skin for best results.
Also, my daughter has very sensitive skin. She sometimes gets rashes on her face. Whenever it is excess, I use the vitamin E and almond oil on her face too and it helps in reducing the rash, gradually fading it.
Having said all the uses and how big a savior this vitamin is, it may cause side effects if taken at high doses (400 units or more per day) or for a long period of time.
This might show in the form of nausea, diarrhea, stomach cramps, tiredness, dizziness, blurred vision, and headache but may rarely occur. If you notice any of these, consult your doctor or pharmacist at the earliest.
