Top 24 Vitamin E Rich Foods for Lose Belly Fat : Weight Loss


What Is The Recommended Daily Allowance Of Vitamin E?

As we have seen, vegetable oils are the major sources of vitamin E. Among nuts, almonds are the richest sources. But what we need to know is that most of the foods rich in vitamin E are also high in calories – hence, if you are trying to cut calories, you might be avoiding these foods.

Vitamin E is very important. We have seen that already. But how do you know if you are getting enough of it?

Following is the table that gives you the details.

(Children & Adults)
Vitamin E (alpha-tocopherol):
Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA)
in millimgrams (mg) and International Units (IU)
 1 – 3 Years
 6 mg/day (9 IU)
 4 – 8 Years
 7 mg/day (10.4 IU)
 9 – 13 Years
 11 mg/day (16.4 IU)
 14 years and up

 15 mg/day (22.4 IU)
 19 mg/day (28.5 IU)
 14 years and up
 15 mg/day (22.4 IU)

And then, we have the tolerable upper intake of vitamin E. This is the maximum amount of vitamin E you can take without worrying about the side effects.
