Add Vitamin E To Your Diet With These Healthy And Tasty Recipes

Vitamin E is essential for a healthy body. Harvard explains that vitamin E enhances immune function and prevents clots from forming in heart arteries. The main role of vitamin E is to act as an antioxidant, scavenging the free radicals that can damage cells. The Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) for vitamin E for males and females ages 14 years and older is 15 mg daily, including women who are pregnant, explains Harvard. Further, lactating women need 19 mg of vitamin E daily.
