Top 7 Vitamin E Foods & Effect On Diabetes

top-foods with vitamin E

Vitamin E is supposed to have neuroprotective effects on the narrowed blood vessels, decreasing the chances of further damages and trying to repair the already-damaged cells.

As diabetics lack in vitamins and other micronutrients; they are encouraged to eat the right foods rich in these micronutrients to get their effects naturally.

Therefore, I have tried to built up this list of top foods high in vitamin E, in order to make it easier for you while shopping.

When I have prepared this list, I have noticed that these foods have also other nutrients diabetics mostly need, such as being good natural source of fiber, carbohydrates, essential fatty acids, proteins, etc.

I want to remind you that the data on their nutrient properties are extracted from USDA nutrient database. Furthermore, oils and nuts are those with highest content in vitamin E. That is why I have always emphasize the importance of including nuts in your diabetic daily menu.

Around 41 mg of vitamin E is provided in 100 grams of sunflower oil and 1 tablespoon contains approximately 5.6 mg of this vitamin.

In addition, sunflower oil contains high content of unsaturated fatty acids (up to 45 grams).
