Oysters have the highest amount of zinc per serving, but in a typical American diet most of the zinc comes from red meat and poultry. Zinc absorption is higher from animal protein than plant protein because plants contain organic acids like phytic acid and oxalic acid that bind elements like zinc and calcium and prevent their absorption.

The main compounds with vitamin E activity are alpha-, beta-, gamma-, and delta-tocopherol, and alpha-, beta-, gamma-, and delta-tocotrienols. Nuts, seeds, olive oil, whole-grains, and green leafy vegetables are all excellent sources of tocopherols and tocotrienols.
