10 Important Vitamins for Men's Health

4

Vitamin E

Vitamin E might be one of the most misunderstood vitamins on our list. As with all vitamins, it's important to maintain balance and not get too much, especially considering vitamin E is fat-soluble and will stay in your system. Since it shows up in such a wide variety of products, it's important to keep track of your intake.

Vitamin E is an important antioxidant and is thought to add protection against heart disease and cancer. It's also used on the skin to prevent signs of aging and as a treatment for sunburn. Hard evidence is still mixed, however [source: UMMC]. The best sources of vitamin E are whole grains, nuts and seeds. Supplementation is possible, but it's the least preferred method of intake and must be taken with food. It should also be cleared with a health provider if you're on any medications, even just aspirin. Still, vitamin E is an important part of our diet and should be consumed through food sources whenever possible.
