Along with vitamin C, lutein, and beta-carotene, vitamin E is a member of a group of antioxidants that can neutralize free radicals. One study revealed that women who ate a very healthy diet
full of all kinds of antioxidants from vegetables, fruits, and whole grains were half as likely to develop cataracts as women who did not eat such a healthy diet. In addition, numerous studies have observed that people with high dietary intakes or blood levels of antioxidants — particularly vitamins C and E — are at a significantly lower risk for cataracts. A diet full of foods rich in vitamin E, like sunflower seeds
, almonds, peanuts, and butters made from these nuts and seeds
can protect your vision (and benefit the rest of your body, as well!)
