Nuts- peanut, almond, spinach, broccoli, green mustard and other green leafy vegetable. Tomato, red bell pepper sun flower seed, pumpkin seed and sesame (til) vegetale oils (olive oil, sun flower oil) egg yolk, whole grain, soybean fruits- papaya, mango, kiwi. Basil these are better sources of vit e, but I suggest instead you take in general a balanced diet which will be much useful to you rather than going for a particular type of food do following 1. No alcohol 3. No smoking 4. Diet - no ghee/ butter, have mix of vegetable oils - mustard, til, ground nut, olive oil, have more green vegetables and fruits, have whole grain atta, no fried. Fast. Spicy / processed/ junk food. Less sugar, potato, rice 5.30 mts walk daily 6. Deep breathing exercise for 10 mts daily 8. Expose your body to sun for 15-20 mts daily after some oil massage to get vit d. For medicine contact on private chat with complete blood reports if any and your problems good luck.
