One would have to eat a whole container of 10 oz spinach, have to eat nuts and vegetable oils, and eat massive amount of other types of foods to get the daily mg of Vitamin E? Is it just me that's having a tough time with this?
Anyone know of several good sources of vitamin B6, preferably low-carb? I know bananas are good, but they're not really my thing. I'm trying to get over a cold and apparently vitamin B6 helps with that....wondering where I can get some without... (more)
143% daily value for b6 in 8oz of salmon. 142% daily value for b6 in 6oz of liver. Decent amounts in meat, throw in a few lbs of plants and you should be good.
Hi! I bought a 10,000 DUI vitamin D3 supplement that comes in a soft gel. The only ingredients are safflower oil, gelatin, and sunflower oil. The alternative was a tablet that only comes in up to 2,000DUI and contains far more ingredients,... (more)
how long does it take for you to reverse being deficient in a vitamin when supplementing?
One thing to note - if you have become deficient despite eating foods that should have provided the vitamin or mineral, you may have some digestive problems. Heal the gut first otherwise no amount of supplementation will help!

According to this lady http://www.ancestralizeme.com/2011/11/27/paleo-hacks-keratosis-pillaris/ Vitamin D can lower Vitamin A? So say I was already a bit deficient, being in the sun without getting enough would make it so much worse? I am really... (more)
Well, I've been reading about Vitamin A and such, and they say that even perfectly healthy people don't convert beta carotene in plants to Vitamin a very efficiently. We would have to eat SO many plants to get a wee bit of vitamin A...UNLESS we... (more)
A thing to keep in mind: Biology is not efficient. Why would we effectively need to absorb them? They likely ate manyfold as much pro-vitamin A as we do now. Even poor converters would have enough given that level of consumption.
