Are you a Vitamin-E deficient?


Looking into the mirror, I have realized how things have changed. I am no longer the same Sapna, who used to be active, healthy and loves to trek. Only 5 years and everything has changed. I look elder than my age. My skin has become dull, hairs frizzy. Family, kids and other tasks over occupied me so much that I ignored myself and my health. It is not like I was not aware of my increase in weight but isn’t it that most of the females get after having kids. My dull skin hardly bothered me as I used to associate with my hard work and being a caring mother. In bringing up of my kids and being a loyal wife, I completely forget myself.

But today I realized how wrong I have done to myself. Due to the power cut, the lift of our society was not working. Our apartment is on the second floor only, hardly any stairs but It was like walking a marathon for me. Somehow reached, I was seriously gasping for the breath, hardly had any strength to ring the doorbell and almost fainted.

The time I opened my eyes, I was on the bed, Amit standing worriedly, Kids were shouting “mumma” but I could not get the courage to hold them. That time, I realized what wrong I have done to myself. More than my cooked food, my family needs me. I need to be healthy not for myself but for my kids. That day I decided to be more cautious about my health.

Amit told that there is nothing to get worried. The doctor further clarifies that it is just because of lack of Vitamin E and overexertion. He sat and then explained

What is Vitamin E?
Vitamin E is a fat-soluble vitamin, essential for health, good skin and healthy hairs.

Sources of Vitamin E
Vitamin E is easily found in our day to day food items like vegetable oils, nuts and nut oilseeds, egg yolk, margarine, cheese, soya beans, wheat germ, oatmeal, avocados, olives, green leafy vegetables, olive, sunflower, corn, soya beans oils, and others.

Why is Vitamin E important?
Vitamin E is a well-known anti-oxidant and it has multiple biological roles in our body.
1. Helps to protect cells from the damage caused by free radicals.
2. The body needs Vitamin E to boost its immune system so that it can fight off invading bacteria and viruses.
3. Helps in keeping skin soft and moisturized
4. Protects against damage of Ultra Violet rays
5. Decrease wrinkles of the skin
6. UV protection helps protect against sunburn

Recommended daily dose of Vitamin E
The daily recommended dietary allowance of Vitamin E for adults is 15 mg (22.4 International Units).

Finding me puzzled, the Doctor further continued that there is no need of getting scared or puzzled. He said, simple lifestyle changes will help you go a long way in fighting Vitamin E deficiency and regaining and retaining your youthful glow and health. With the right amount of Vitamin E intake in the diet and doctor-recommended supplements like #Evion ( – India’s No.1 Vitamin E Brand, one can live a healthy and well-balanced lifestyle.

Evion Supplements is doctor’s No. 1 recommended supplement. Tiredness, hair problems, dull skin and muscle soreness are few of its common symptoms. Though most of the time, we don’t realize these visible signs as symptoms of Vitamin E deficiency. With the right amount of Vitamin E intake in the diet and doctor-recommended supplements like Evion – India’s No.1 Vitamin E Brand, one can live a healthy and well-balanced lifestyle.

Hearing this I have decided to make the simple changes in my lifestyle to cure this deficiency of Vitamin E. No doubt, will include Evion Supplements, as a must part of my daily diet. Secondly, Nuts, in the breakfast to keep me active all day. Coriander Chutney and leafy vegetables as a must part of my daily diet.

I have made my pledge to be healthy and active with Evion, not for me but for my family, what about you? A healthy you mean healthy your family.


  1. I have read that Vitamin E also helps maintaining a good reproductive system, what are your thoughts on this??

  2. I am not saying I have the best skin of all. I do get occasional breakouts. But considering my daily routine (driving more than one hour every day on a two-wheeler in Bangalore traffic and pollution), I can safely say that I have good skin. You can find so many DIY masks and scrubs to give your self-luxury treatment.

    Again, all this is not magical solution for skin and hair problems although we do expect magic. Everyone is different and underlying cause of problems can also be different. So please don’t expect that over night everything will change, if that was the case then no one would ever have bad skin and no one will lose hair. But having proper E should help improve the nourishment.

    Thanks for the article; its really helpful and informative.
