Benefits of Vitamin E
Vitamin E: It’s got your back! This nutrient works hard to keep your cells safe.**
Towel? Check. Sunscreen? Check. Sunflower seeds? Wait a minute! Carry crunchy flower kernels to the beach? Yes! Besides being a tasty snack, sunflower seeds are a great source of vitamin E - a powerful antioxidant that helps protect your skin from the damaging effects of the sun.
Of all the nutrients working together to defend your body’s cells, vitamin E is believed by some researchers to be the most important.** It loves your skin (maybe even more than you do) and scurries to the surface as soon as ultraviolet light hits-with fists drawn, ready to fight free radicals so you can keep that youthful, wrinkle-free look longer.**
Vitamin E Foods
