Vitamin E

Table II.43: Vitamin E (ii.1158286137159-164)

Tocopherols are vitamin E compounds. Both fresh and dried turmeric root contain alpha tocopherol, the most active form of fat-soluble vitamin E in humans. The human body can't make vitamin E, but α-tocopherol is maintained in the cell membranes.

Foods that contain vitamin E include alfalfa, almonds, apples, asparagus, avocado, coffee, fennel, hazelnuts, olive oil, oranges, mango, peanuts and peanut butter, sunflower seeds and oil, sweet potatoes, and wheat germ and oil. Besides turmeric, herbal sources of vitamin E include anise, eucalyptus, mint, purslane, and red sage. Bee pollen and royal jelly also contain vitamin E.

Research indicates these vitamin E-containing foods, herbs, and supplements may help prevent cancer (including breast cancer) and reduce stress. They could even help with acne and wrinkles, as well as improve thinning hair and cellulite.
