Vitamin E: Nuts, Seeds and Oils


Previously we discussed meat containing vitamin E, which included array of creatures including octopus, lobster and snail.  Today, I’d like to remind readers of two other overlooked sources of vitamin E – seeds and nuts and (of course) oils. 

One of the reasons we are focusing on vitamin E, is because it is an antioxidant that protects against free radicals in the body.  This is important to us at Heart of Yemalla, LLC because our PU55Y Oil contains grapeseed oil and sweet almond oil which naturally contain vitamin E, which helps nurture and support vaginal health.

Below are a list of 10 seeds and nuts high in vitamin E

  1. Sunflower Seeds — 66% DV per serving
  2. Almonds — 48% DV per serving
  3. Hazelnuts — 28% DV per serving
  4. Pine Nuts — 18% DV per serving
  5. Peanuts — 16% DV per serving
  6. Brazil Nuts — 11% DV per serving
  7. Pistachios — 5% DV per serving
  8. Pumpkin Seeds — 4% DV per serving
  9. Pecans — 3% DV per serving
  10. Cashew Nuts — 2% DV per serving


And as promised, here is a list of oils (for cooking) high in vitamin E.

  1. Wheat Germ Oil — 135% DV per serving
  2. Hazelnut Oil — 43% DV per serving
  3. Sunflower Oil — 37% DV per serving
  4. Almond Oil — 36% DV per serving (Woohoo!)

  6. Safflower Oil — 31% DV per serving
  7. Rice Bran Oil — 29% DV per serving
  8. Grapeseed Oil — 26% DV per serving (Woohoo!)
  9. Canola Oil — 16% DV per serving
  10. Palm Oil — 14% DV per serving

This compiled list is not exclusive, but contains the highest amount of vitamin E in both categories as have been published in most common and recent reports.  Do keep in mind however, that further research is recommended for consumable products – how they are harvested and processed to ensure the companies that sell these products are in line with your own ethical standards.
