Is walgreens or whole foods the best brand of vitamin E supplement?

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.

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---.

Vit e is useful as a preventive measure but generally does not give energy or brain power.

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?

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?

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 more
