Vitamin E

Vitamin E is one of the few fat-soluble vitamins. It functions primarily as an antioxidant, and is essential at appropriate levels. However, since it is fat-soluble, our bodies cannot excrete any excess vitamin E (which is generally only possible with supplementation). Overconsumption has been associated with increased mortality rates. Our best dietary sources are seeds, nuts and olive oil.
