Only if on coumadin (warfarin):
I can't think of any reason for anyone to avoid foods rich in vitamin E (studies suggesting e is not safe used synthetic e- no evidence natural e is unsafe).
Vitamin k is extremely beneficial but can interfere with coumadin (warfarin). But if on Coumadin (warfarin) you could still eat foods rich in vit. K & adjust dose accordingly. I do not like Coumadin (warfarin) partly because its effects on vit k- please see my comment. ...Read more

D3 does not need to be added to food - take once a day - and certainly does not need to be heated. ...Read more
Proven as supplement: A study showed taking 250 mg of b6 increased vividness of dreams. Lower doses might help as well. 250 mg/day can cause neuropathy in some so you shouldn't take that dose for more than a week or 2, but 100 mg/day is safe ; may well help. You can eat foods rich in b6 but it isn't known if the amount you can get from foods will be enough- see http://b6dreams. Com/2011/12/14/b6-and-dreams/#effect. ...Read more

Does amway's multi vitamin tablets really work? If so can I stop taking fruits and protein rich foods? Is it sufficient if I eat energy rich foods?
"really work" BUT...: I am not sure what you mean by "really work" but they will provide a source of vitamins & minerals. However, supplements are not a substitute for a healthy diet. Fruits have many beneficial phytonutrients not found in vitamin tablets. Vitamins do not contain any protein. I'm not sure what you mean by energy rich foods but sugars & simple carbs are among the least healthy foods to eat! ...Read more
What are vitamin a rich foods that needed to be avoided during pregnancy? I know beta carotene format is the best
NONE!: It is important to have adequate vitamin a in pregnancy- not enough can cause fetal growth retardation & blindness. The only hazard is more than 10, 000 iu of preformed a in the first weeks of pregnancy. It is virtually impossible to get that much from food- one would need to have 22 servings of milk, 40 eggs or 42 servings of salmon every day to get that much vitamin a! ...Read more

How do I take my daily needs of food vitamin requirements with out over eating a single type of foods?
Vary it: A cheap multivitamin / mineral tablet is plenty, and there's little wisdom in obsessively counting how much of what nutrient is in how much of what you eat. The rda's are set high and if you avoid extremes (all "junk food" and uninformed-vegetarian) you'll be fine. The common dietary deficiencies in the usa are vitamin d and iron. Life's hard enough without the extra burden of worry. Good luck. ...Read more
Is it really possible to get all nutrition needs (vitamin and mineral etc) all from the food we eat alone? I find it hard to believe it can be done.
Supplements: Yes, one can get all the vitamins and minerals they need just from diet alone. This is accomplished by maintaining a diet that his high in a variety of fruits and vegetables, lean proteins from different sources, low in saturated fats, high in unsaturated fats, and a variety of complex carbohydrates. Vitamins are like insurance, take them "just in case" you don't eat as recommended. ...Read more
