Fun Facts:

Vitamin E was discovered in 1922 when researchers gave female rats a low Vitamin E diet. All pregnant rats had litters that were stillborn. They later added lettuce and wheat germ (high Vitamin E sources), and healthy babies were born.

Vitamin E is so important for all stages of reproductive health. Menopause included.
