Facts About Vitamin E
What is vitamin E?
Vitamin E is a powerful, fat-soluble antioxidant that helps protect cell membranes against damage caused by free radicals and prevents the oxidation of LDL cholesterol. The term vitamin E encompasses a group of eight compounds, called tocopherols and tocotrienols, that comprise the vitamin complex as it is found in nature.
Why is vitamin E necessary?
Vitamin E is necessary for structural and functional maintenance of skeletal, cardiac, and smooth muscle. It also assists in the formation of red blood cells and helps to maintain stores of vitamins A and K, iron, and selenium. It may have a positive effect on immune health, protect against the oxidative damage that can lead to heart disease, have preventive effects against cancer, help relieve symptoms of Alzheimer's disease, and may help prevent some diabetes-related damage, particularly to the eyes.
What are the signs of a vitamin E deficiency?
Vitamin E deficiency is rare in humans. People who cannot absorb dietary fat or who have rare disorders of fat metabolism cannot absorb vitamin E. Premature or very low birth weight infants and individuals with rare genetic abnormalities in the alpha-tocopherol transfer protein may also be at risk for a vitamin E deficiency. Symptoms of a vitamin E deficiency include greasy stools, chronic diarrhea and an inability to secrete bile.
How much, and what kind, of vitamin E, does an adult need?
According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the U.S. Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) for adults older than 14-years is 15 mg (or 22.5 IU); pregnant women of any age should get 15 mg (or 22.5 IU); and breastfeeding women of any age should take 19 mg (or 28.5 IU). Dr. Weil recommends supplementing with vitamin E that provides a minimum daily dose of 80 mg of the whole complex, including mixed tocopherols and mixed tocotrienols. It should provide at least 10 mg of tocotrienols. If you can't find that, look for a product with mixed natural tocopherols (400 to 800 IU daily). Avoid dl-alpha-tocopherol, the synthetic form.

🌱ECO WITH EM 🌱
This week’s tribute is the intelligent @ecowithem_
Em lives a sustainable lifestyle full of worms, mason jars, veggie gardens and more. ♻️ BUT, what makes her tribute worthy to me, is her way of educating others. ✏️ Through drawing educational illustrations, Em helps others learn about sustainability in a way where you don’t feel guilty or stupid for not knowing these things to begin with. 🙈 My type of learning 😁! Her interview will be up later this week. 🎥 In the mean time go check out her work @ecowithem_
This afternoon’s grocery haul from mother nature’s market. Komnucha on tap? Garlic scapes? And bulk? YES PLEASE.So grateful to be close by and for the staffs’ patience as I get used to shopping waste free. And I know, there’s a carton of almond milk. We honestly go through a lot and I’ve yet to find a way to do this myself without spending a trillion dollars on almonds 🤷🏼♀️ Do you make nut milk for the whole family or opt for cartons like these?
I am ashamed to admit it, but when it comes to doing my bit for the environment, laziness and convenience have often prevailed 😞. Single-use sandwich bags, plastic straws, bottled water and using the clothes drier on a hot day are some of my sins 🙅🏼♀️. I'm not all bad... but I know there is a HUGE OPPORTUNITY for improvement.
The same goes for looking after myself 💕. For years I have suffered IBS, skin sensitivities, naturally high cholesterol, dips in energy levels and a weak immune system. I know first hand that regular exercise, and eating more plants in favour of processed foods and animal products is when my body THRIVES! Yet, I often use the excuse that I am too busy and have more important things to do.
As a mother, I recognise my actions not only have an impact on the environment 🌳 now, but also in the future as I set the EXAMPLE for the next generation... in particular, my children. I also know that I need to teach them self-love. So today marks a day of CHANGE. My husband and I are raising KIND and BEAUTIFUL souls and we want to make sure they live in a kinder, more beautiful world where they APPRECIATE their beauty within, and the beauty around them 🌏. I have created this account to document my journey to a CLEANER, KINDER and more SUSTAINABLE way of life 🌱and to take better care of MYSELF and the PLANET. I hope by doing this, I will be kept ACCOUNTABLE, and to be INSPIRED by and ENGAGE with a community of people all over the world working towards the same goal ✌🏻. #sustainable#sustainableliving#ecofriendly#sustainability#organic#recycle#reuse#plantbased#environment#gogreen#plasticfree#nature#climatechange#bethechange#savetheplanet#ethical#wellness#cleanliving#saynotoplastic#selflove#loveyourself#beautywithin

The smoke from the fires is crazy! We have over 500 fires burning in BC and over 3600 firefighters from all over the world trying desperately to control them. My daughter went to get the mail this morning and said her eyes were stinging from the smoke. 👀 I can't imagine what it must be like closer to the fires.🔥😳 We've got diffusers running in every room so we're breathing easy thank goodness. 🙏 Eucalyptus and Peppermint are awesome respiratory support for times like this, and Purification is amazing for cleaning the air. 🌿

Even the smallest shift in the way we think, the tiniest action towards making a difference, it can be a powerful thing. Growing up in Hawaii the reality of plastic pollution washed up on our shores daily and tackling such a monstrous issue felt hopeless at times, but when I just focus on myself, on my personal plastic consumption and how I contribute to the problem, making a difference doesn’t feel like such a daunting task.
Being able to experience the wonder and natural beauty of our public lands is why we do what we do. At Wise River, it is part of our mission to fight for the protection of such. Stay tuned for some exciting partnership announcements!
