Taking a closer look at the lifestyles we live today, even though we feel and look healthy, there persists lack of some important nutrients in our body. We call it “deficiency”.

A deficiency of any vitamin calls for a poorly functional body.

Vitamin E, an antioxidant and one of the essential vitamins our bodies need .It fights free radicals and prevents lipid destruction in cell-membranes. That’s why any source of food taken for Vitamin E should always be taken with lipids or oils, as it’s a fat soluble and it works better. Chemically, it refers to a group of  compounds which includes both Tocopherols, and Tocotrienols. Usually Vitamin E is found majorly in North American diet, which includes corn oil, Soya bean oil, margarine and dressing.

Are you experiencing abnormal hair fall?

Do you get extremely tired at times?

Are you dealing with dull, dry skin and muscle soreness?

Do you feel weakening of eye muscles and the often fluctuations in your eye powers?

If its a YES, then there is a deficiency of a vitamin and that is the Vitamin E. Although you may not be able to realize it, these symptoms still exist. The only way to overcome these symptoms is for us to know how very important it is that intake of Vitamin  be absolutely appropriate.

Just boil the fresh asparagus in water for two minutes.
Over cooking may destroy vitamin E. Cut all veggies in 5 inches.
Now take a pan, put some olive oil and sunflower oil add some garlic.
Saute all veggies, add salt, crushed nuts and roasted sunflower seeds.
