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.

Can anyone expand on the benefits/purpose of supplementing Vitamin E?

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?
