My Sister the Nutritionist: Vitamin E

February 23, 2016

Fat-soluble Vitamin E contains antioxidant properties, which provide countless benefits to both your health and your skin! Antioxidants work to combat free radicals (harmful substances) in your body. By blocking free radicals from your body, Vitamin E boosts immunity, reduces cholesterol, and reduces the risk of developing cancer.

Sunflower oil, high in Vitamin E, can be found in MMT body oils, soaps, and our face cleanser. It blocks free radicals from damaging the skin and can protect the skin from unavoidable environmental stress that cause skin cell irritations and mutations. It’s antioxidant properties also aid in the prevention of cell aging, promoting a healthy, youthful complexion while reducing wrinkles, scarring, or damaged tissue. The list of benefits doesn’t stop there! Vitamin E also contains anti-inflammatory properties that calm and hydrate the skin to soothe dryness and irritation.

Want these benefits? Begin increasing your skin and overall health by consuming adequate amount of Vitamin E daily! This vitamin is found in high amounts in nuts, seeds, and vegetable oils. So be sure your diet includes sunflower seeds, almonds, spinach, or avocados- to name just a few!
