Indian Lifestyle Blog - Did you say Vitamin E?



Indian Lifestyle Blog - Did you say Vitamin E?

Hey guys, how you all doing?  I am back at writing blogs regularly. Today, I am going to talk about another health-related topic. It is important that we talk about various vitamins and supplements for overall well-being and prevention of ailments. I shall enlighten you with the right knowledge and share my inputs based on research.

Vitamin E is a fat-soluble antioxidant that is essential for maintaining the overall health and functioning of the body. This essential vitamin protects the cells from the damage caused by substances called free radicals which can harm cells. Vitamin E is a nutrient that's important to vision, reproduction, and the health of your blood, brain, and skin.

While you will always see me planning my next travel destination and exploring new countries, traveling can be challenging as well. Not every time do you get the comforts of your home and all the essentials accessible. It can take a toll on my lifestyle. Travelling can be a hectic affair, it also means erratic sleep pattern, lack of availability of healthy food options and irregular eating timings. (IND-OTH-1904-0207). 
There are days when I get back from shoots/ work after more than 14-15 hours. I am always on-the-go and manage to make time to work out in between meetings, emails, social media, and shoots.

However, for eating right it is important to plan and prepare in advance. Vitamin E is found naturally in some foods, added to others, and available as a dietary supplement. Consumption of supplements plays a vital role and Vitamin E has various health benefits.

Sources of Vitamin E
The best way to consume this diet is through a healthy diet.
- Nuts (such as almonds, peanuts, and hazelnuts) and seeds (like sunflower seeds) are the vital sources of Vitamin E.
- Green leafy vegetables such as spinach and broccoli also contain vitamin E.
- Vegetable oils like wheat germ and sunflower seeds are among the best sources of vitamin E. Corn and soybean oils also provide some vitamin E.

Why Vitamin E?
In addition to providing cell protection, vitamin E is vital to a functioning immune system. As a powerful antioxidant, it helps cells fight off infection.

Muscle Strength
I work out at least 4-5 times a week regularly and even while traveling, I make time to work out in hotel fitness centers and consumption of Vitamin E post workout can be used to improve physical endurance and muscle strength. According to some articles, it reduces the level of oxidative stress on muscles after a workout and eliminates fatigue by improving blood circulation.

Eyes
This vitamin also helps protect eyesight. A 2015 study by the Department of Epidemiology and Health Statistics of the Qingdao University Medical College found that Vitamin E intake and high serum-tocopherol levels were linked to a decreased risk of age-related cataracts.

Heart
There is evidence that Vitamin E could prevent or delay coronary heart disease. According to some articles, this vitamin also prevents the formation of blood clots that could lead to a heart attack.

Skin
Vitamin E benefits the skin by strengthening the capillary walls and improving moisture and elasticity, acting as a natural anti-aging nutrient within your body. According to studies, vitamin E reduces inflammation both within your body and on your skin, helping maintain healthy, youthful skin. These antioxidant properties are also helpful when you’re exposed to cigarette smoke or ultraviolet rays from sunlight.

Hair
Because vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant, it helps to decrease environmental damage to your hair. It can also promote circulation to the scalp. Vitamin E oil can retain the natural moisture in your skin, which helps your scalp from becoming dry and flakey.

Hormones
According to few articles, Vitamin E also balances hormones naturally by balancing our endocrine and nervous systems. Various symptoms include weight gain, PMS, anxiety, fatigue, and urinary infections. By keeping our hormones in balance, it is easier to maintain a healthy weight and have a regular menstrual cycle.

According to federal government’s Dietary Guidelines for Americans, it is important to get nutrients from food. In some cases, fortified foods and dietary supplements may provide nutrients that otherwise may be consumed in less-than-recommended amounts. I suggest taking supplements as we probably do not get all that we require from our daily food.
