Is Walgreens Or Whole Foods The Best Brand Of Vitamin E Supplement
Neither: Depends on who makes it for them as neither makes their own. You need "mixed tocopherols" to benefit your health not just vit e which is usually just one form of the many and is a synthetic which is cheaper but can lead to bad outcomes. I use pure encapsulations brand, other good quality ones are from orthomolecular, metagenics. Read label and remember you get what you pay for! ...Read more

E-e-e-e-e-e-e-eGad!!: Yep.Join the club.There's so much "diametrically opposing" information out there you want to pull the hairs out of your---. So you have to fall back on basic principles (the "foondamentals," as my fencing instructor would hammer into us). First, do you NEED it as a supplement? Probably not.And if you eat the right stuff every day (Google that), you'll get enough.Too much of anything ain't too good ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Yes, in fact wise: Most multivitamins only have 30 iu of vitamin e, which is the rda, but many nutrition experts advise taking 400-800 iu/day. It is important to take a natural e with mixed tocopherols- there is a good deal of research showing the benefits of natural e (d-alpha tocopherol) but synthetic e (dl-alpha tocopehol) appears to be hazardous.

How much does your body absorb of vitamin E if you rubbed vitamin E oil over a large surface area 4x supplement portion?
Yes, can take both: Vitamin e and omega-3 fats like dha and epa are ok to take together. There is some evidence that antioxidants like vitamin E may improve sperm quality (less dna damage) but the studies are small and it's far from proven. There is no good evidence that either supplement improves female fertility. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

If i buy vitamin B12 supplements and vitamin E supplements. Will it increase my energy and brain power?
It depends...: If you are deficient in B12 it will improve energy and can improve brain function. If you are not deficient (levels below 500) it won't help. Vit e is useful as a preventive measure but generally does not give energy or brain power. It would be ideal to consult with a holistic doc to assess the reasons you might lack energy or brain power so you can address the specific causes. ...Read more
What does it mean that vitamin A and vitamin E are fat soluble that the body cannot get rid of them easily how can I benefit from these supplements?
It means that: These vitamins can "build up"/be stored in the fatty tissue., so that means you can build up toxic levels easily. Non fat soluble vitamins can't hide in the fat and your kidneys are usually able to excrete the excess amounts so the toxicity is more readily avoided. Remember not all of the consumed fat soluble vitamins hide in fat, some will readily be utilizable by your body. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
