Vitamin E Supplements

Unread postby narouz » Mon Aug 06, 2012 1:40 pm

Interesting thing someone posted at Danny's site recently, explaining why the Vitamin E I've been using for a while--at Danny's suggestion--"Unique E" by A.C. Grace is recommended by that company:

I think the one Danny recommends is the A.C. Grace "Unique E" mixed tocopherols. Here's a quote from RP:

"The unsaturated tocotrienols have hardly been tested for the spectrum of true vitamin E activity, and animal studies have suggested that it may be toxic, since it caused liver enlargement."

...this is why they favor the tocopherols by themselves instead of the tocopherols/tocotrienol combination.

I like to keep facial skin younger looking. My vit K goes across my forehead. lol. And occasional progest-e to same areas. Usually in some coconut oil first so spreads more thinly.

Hi Nickje - would be interested to know if you notice any effect of the Vitamin E on your forehead.

I am always on the lockout for ideas to keep my skin relatively wrinkle free and smooth :-) Thanks

Don't think so as of yet. Started taking it internally now though. Unique E capsules.

May be duplicate post (can't find first one)....how much Vitamin E daily is a good dose? Can I take too much/upper limit? I would think the 400 IUs may not be enough.....Thanks....

I would also be interested in the answer to this. I would rather do it topically if possible. The vitamin E in unique-E is carried by glycerin, its all I know.

I also noticed it's like honey, I don't know what it means for the vitamin-E absorption.

I use 400IU but used to take 800 for years. Sometime I up the dose. For example the day I had stomach bleeding. If you put it on the skin, only about 10% will absorb, 20% if it's very thin skin and you're lucky.

I use Unique-E. Somebody in the RP Fans recommended it and we were all using it at that time.

So its best just to take it orally?

Regarding liposoluble vitamins, Ray Peat told me that he uses four times the oral dose on skin.

Wilfrid, welcome to the forum!

That's great info, thank you.

Does anyone know why we want to use it on skin and not take it by mouth?

Hi Charlie,

Ray told me that it's much safer to use those vitamins ( A and D) on skin rather than taking them by mouth.
For vitamin E he told me that it's ok to take 400UI once or twice a week because the vitamin E is stored longer in the tissues.

Wow ok, so we really do not need much Vitamin E at all then.

Hi everyone,

I was wondering which supplement is of the 'lesser evil"? I currently have one that's based on olive oil,which I think is the best and loved to be able to maintain however it's also the most expensive and I kinda need to wager.
So there are cheaper options,but they're either filled with sunflower,soy- or wheatgerm oil.....which one would be the least toxic/damaging?
