Protect your Immune System and Skin with the Help of Vitamin E

For so long, people have associated vitamin E with healthier skin, but what people have failed to pick up on is that it is also an agent in strengthening your immune system!

Vitamin E plays a key role in metabolic processes and in boosting the immune system by protecting cells from damage and free radicals –– the harmful agents to the body, coming from your surroundings. They weaken and break down healthy cells, causing them to age.

In boosting the immune system, vitamin E fights off bacteria and viruses by widening blood vessels and keeping blood from clotting within them. It also helps cells interact with each other in order for them to carry out many important functions. 

Commiting to a healthy lifestyle is the first step in strengthening your immune system. Make your body better protected against environmental assaults by committing to these healthy-living strategies: [2][3]

  • A healthy diet made up of fruits and vegetables.
  • Saying no to smoking.
  • Developing a regular exercise routine.
  • Maintain a healthy body weight.
  • Getting enough sleep (at least 7 to 8 hours a day).
  • Frequent washing of hands (at least 20 seconds).
  • Thoroughly cooking meats.
  • Avoiding various stressors.

Foods like nuts, seeds, and green vegetables are found to be rich in vitamin E. [2]

Another easy way to get enough vitamin E in your diet is through wheat germ oil–by adding at least a tablespoon of it into your recipes. You can also snack on sunflower seeds, which supplies over 20mg of vitamin E, which is a little over a full day’s requirement. Getting creative with your food will help you reap the many benefits of vitamin E in your diet–not just for your immune system, but also for that healthy glowing skin you’ve always wanted to have. [4]
