Is it ok to take 400 IU of Vitamin E if I have had a heart attack and CHF? I have taken Vitamin E for yrs and wanted to make sure it was ok.

In brief: Vitamin E

the HOPE trial did not demonstrate any cardiovascular benefits from vitamin E, rather in women risk of adverse effects was more likely.
A balanced diet should provide enough vitamin E for most individuals.
