Vitamin E is a fat soluble vitamin which needs fat carriers in order to be absorbed. Due to this it is not as easily assimilated as vitamins which are water soluble. Vitamin E can be found in nuts, vegetable oils, sprouted grains, fresh fruits, animal innards, egg yolk, lean meat, peanuts and green leafy vegetables. It can also be found in fortified foods like certain cereals. Vitamin E can also be synthetically made and the difference between them is notable. Natural Vitamin E consists of only D forms of tocotrienols and tocopherols while the synthetic form of Vitamin E consists of equal amounts of D and L forms of these chemicals. The L forms are less biologically effective than the natural D form.
