Can Vitamin E Cause Constipation
Do you recommended taking some vitamins such as CoQ10, Vitamin E, C, B12, K2, D3, and probiotics and laxatives for constipation in Parkinson? Also is sun exposure dangerous in PD in terms of increasing free radicals in body or is it good for Vit D? Thx
All except laxatives:
Are fine, though there is not much evidence that vit E is helpful. Except Exercise! That is apparently emerging as one of the most helpful things you can do for PD AND the good news for you is it also helps constipation.
You should of course drink LOTS of fluids and eat fruits, veg, and fiber. If you must take a laxative, use a fiber laxative. Good luck! ...Read more
Unsure: There are few studies in humans on this that I have been able to locate. Some of the damage that alcohol does to the body involves increases in oxidizing substances, where anti-oxidants can help prevent damage, and vitamin E is an anti-oxidant. Some people feel that extra vitamin E may be helpful in those with alcoholism, but there is no real proof of this. 15-30 mg of vit e would be reasonable. ...Read more
Depends: Vitamin has 8 subtypes. Studies done showing increased risk of prostate cancer used only one (alpha). Each subtype does different things, and vit e is best taken as a combination of more than one subtype. Gamma and delta are good for the heart and blood vessels. Unique e is a brand that gives mixed tocopherols. There are also other brands. ...Read more

Is there a possibility that a few vitamin e 268mg capsules can cause a priapism if one is taking it for peyronies treatment?
Unlikely: Sometimes it is difficult to know what causes priapism or for that matter peyronie's disease. My hunch is that something other than Vit E, even at high doses, is the cause. Sometimes when we can't figure out a cause it's because there are multiple causes. Priapism warrants as you probably already know immediate medical attention. Fortunately most ER professionals know what to do. ...Read more

I've eaten a lot of foods rich in vitamin E while pregnant (daily amounts well over RDA) I just read this can cause birth defects. Should I be worried?
It depends: IT depends on when the vitamin E was taken. Studies shows a link between excess vitamin E intake, in the month prior to conception and the first 2 months of pregnancy, and birth defects (70% more likely). Specifically congenital heart defects (9 times more likely). The recommended RDA for vitamin E in pregnancy is about 18 mg/day. One study link vitamin E intake > 14.9 mg with heart defects. ...Read more
Will putting vitamin E oils on my face at night help with fine lines and wrinkles? Or will it just clog my pores and cause acne?
I had stuttering priapism for 1. But for the next 8 days my penis glans stayed engorged. Why is this? What causes this? I had only taken 12 vitamin e.
Priapism: Priapism is a medical emergency. It is unhealthy for the penis to be swollen for such a prolonged period of time. You need to be seen in the ER and treated. At the same time they will try to determine why this happened. I don't think the vitamin E capsules are responsible. All the best and be seen. ...Read more

Got light headed today. I took 2 ibropohen, Plus vitamin e, fish oil pill. Vitaminc with magnesium, and hairinfinity pill...could that be the causse?
Shift ExternalFocus: Far more likely: internal issues are the "cause". Marketing routinely promotes helplessness only eased by taking products; Backwards of Reality. Our primary controls are within. Sup. Vitamins are big business with no evidence of efficacy for vast majority, ibuprofen, Vit E, C are single molecules, Mg an atom (look up in Google images; including word molecule). Why single?

Do these supplements cause prostate cancer. Selenium and vitamin e derived from sunflower oil. I didn't take these yet just to be on the safe side.?
Not sure yet, but...: There has been no real study on how selenium & Vit E may induce prostate cancer. Most supplements are preying on public's fear and anxiety for commercialism with conflicting info on benefits or harms. In general, you may use them in moderation, but seriously take healthy lifestyle with no overindulgence as the foundation of all care. More? Go to articles in http://formefirst. Com/onLifeBasics.

If your diet is normal & healthy, you won't get deficient in vitamin E anyway.

Yes, also can try...:
Yes, it is safe to use Vit. E oil directly and it will not cause an infection, but there are better options.
